Dear Friend,

What a privilege it is to pastor Gold Canyon United Methodist Church. If you do not already have a church home, please consider worshipping with us. Gold Canyon U.M.C. is a friendly congregation which is located a couple miles east of Apache Junction on Highway 60 in an unincorporated community called Gold Canyon. We feel privileged to worship with a view of the Superstition Mountains.

Since many people in our community are winter visitors, our worship attendance on Sundays can be 450 in the summer and over 2,000 in the winter. Yet we find that while ministry opportunities are greatest in the winter so are the volunteers to make the ministries function. We are a church of vibrant creative worship that moves out into the world to serve others through our many local mission and international projects. We have Sunday School classes for children and an active youth program for teenagers. We offer many short term study classes and support programs for adults.

There are so many great opportunities here to make friends, receive ministry and affect people’s lives with God’s love. There is something here for everyone, and we invite you to take a look and see!

Grace and peace,

Pastor Fred Steinberg
