The Great Embrace- Community Partnerships

On January 30, 2022, Pastor Jim Toole’s Service Worship welcomes guest speakers Jimmy Hart from Tucson Unified School District’s African American Student Services Department, Kathy Ogden from Courtney’s Courage, and Pastor Demetrius Miles from Tucson Church International. Our goal is to introduce you to three new ministries that you may not have yet heard about. We also have their wish items (books, gift cards, prayers) that we would like to bless them with during the next two weeks. Please bring back all items by Sunday, February 13, and give the items directly to the church office or to RuthAnn at the Sunday services. Thank you!


SPEAKER: Jimmy Hart- Director of the African American Student Services Department of TUSD

SPEAKER: Kathy Ogden from Courtney’s Courage

How you can support Courtney’s Courage:

These items are needed because the families drive back and forth to the hospital daily. They currently have families traveling to Tucson from Douglas, Sierra Vista, Rio Rico and Nogales.  Grocery store gift cards also bless the families by helping with their overall cost of bills.

  • Gas cards (QT, Circle K, Fry’s, Safeway)
  • Grocery store gift cards (Fry’s, Walmart, Safeway, Target)


SPEAKER: Pastor Demetrius Miles from Tucson Church International
