This ministry actively monitors, encourages and assists the Palo Verde family.

This ministry strives to provide a monthly service activity for members to help the local neighborhood, non-profit organizations or the congregation.

This ministry partners with parents to be a resource and encouragement in this task. Our primary mission in children’s ministry is to spiritually develop one child at a time. The Elementary Education ministry seeks to involve teachers, parents and all church family members in training up children of faith who show the love of Christ to the world and to each other. We strive to create a happy environment where trained teachers present [Jesus through] Bible principles, study skills and encouragement that can equip children with a lifelong love for our Lord and His church.

The benevolence ministry attempts to meet short term needs of visitors and members for food and basic staples

The Palo Verde family has joined forces with schools, other city churches and local organizations to help address the issue of hunger amongst the school-aged children in our neighborhoods. Together we fill totes with nutritional, easy to make meals that can be prepared by the child. The totes are sent home with children who are on free or reduced lunches during the school week but do not have access to healthy choices in foods at home during the weekends. The child gets a full tote on Friday and brings it back empty on Monday.

This ministry facilitates the organization and recruitment of Palo Verde members for works of service using their God-given abilities for His purposes. Also, this ministry works to ensure those new to Palo Verde are accepted, nurtured, and become an active part of our church family.

Leadership Training For Christ (LTC) is a nation-wide program of the churches of Christ which seeks to mentor students in ways of serving God while exploring and developing their own unique talents and interests.   Students in 3rd through 12th grades partiipate in individual.and group actiivities throughout the fall and spring, culminating in an annual regional convention over Easter weekend.  We are fortunate that this event is held here in Tucson, but Christians from all over the southwestern United States travel to share and celebrate together.  Below is a list of some activities offered by LTC.

Lifegroups are simply small groups of people that gather together outside a corporate church meeting. We’re a big church. We know that. And just because we’re big doesn’t mean that we can do without community. Lifegroups are the means through which we provide that family environment. It’s how we make a big church feel like a small church and where ministry is taken to a relational level.

At Palo Verde, we have a free market model of lifegroup ministry. All this means is that our lifegroups are based around the idea of common interest. So, in other words, if you like to do something, just take it and do it with Palo Verde. If you like to grill steaks, join a backyard bar-b-que lifegroup. If you like to read and discuss Paul’s letter to the Corinthians, join a Bible study life group. If you like to be creative, join an arts and crafts lifegroup. If you like to pray, join a prayer lifegroup.

By creating lifegroups based off of common interest, we create an arena for relationship to form naturally. And these relationships then open the door to fellowship, discipleship, and even evangelism in ways that a weekend worship service simply can’t.

The free market approach to lifegroup ministry offers a variety of lifegroups for a variety of people that have a variety of interests. We’re sure to have one that fits you just right.

"He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing."  I Thessalonians 5:10

Provide an environment where all can enter into a true fellowship with God through Jesus Christ. Also, it is to educate our members by studying God’s word; as well as, the teachings of Jesus and how we can apply the Good News to our everyday lives. This also coordinates all who serve on Sunday so as to remove all distractions from worshipping God and encouraging each other.
