Santa Cruz Valley UMC

 Santa Cruz Valley United Methodist Church is on La Villita near Sahuarita Road.

The congregation at Santa Cruz Valley United Methodist Church in Sahuarita weathered challenges over the last few years as their number declined and COVID-19 hit, but the Rev. Sandy Johnson is breathing a sigh of relief as they eye a new location and a fresh start.

The move comes after the Town Council on Monday approved purchasing the church building at La Villita and Sahuarita roads for $2.4 million. The unanimous vote came in at 6-0 with Council Member Bill Bracco absent. The town's staff also recommended approval.
