17 Fun Churches in Surprise AZ

Many of the residents in our assisted living homes love their churches. There are special relationships between many seniors and their places of worship. We’ve found that many of the churches in Surprise AZ are very welcoming and fun. So, we wanted to let other seniors (and their families!) around Surprise know about all the opportunities around them.

We have also had some Jewish residents who worshipped at synagogues in towns surrounding Surprise. We are just not aware of synagogues in Surprise. The same goes for Muslim mosques, although we have not had any Muslim residents as of the date of this blog post. If anyone knows of any mosques or synagogues in Surprise, we’d love to be able to recommend them to our residents. Please let us know in the comments below.

For this post, we will concentrate on Christian churches in Surprise AZ. We have not visited all these churches in Surprise. We’ve been to some, and heard good things about the rest. We are definitely not trying to endorse any particular religion. In many cases these are non denominational churches in Surprise AZ. We just want to provide information to families about churches in Surprise AZ that can help meet their spiritual needs. If they are so inclined.

You’ll see the churches in Surprise grouped by denomination. There are also some non-denominational churches on the list. If we could find a video about the church we included it. We’ve also included the contact information and website for each church.

We hope you can find the best fit church for your family. We’ve also found some seniors have trouble traveling to church. There is a wonderful service called Northwest Valley Connect around Surprise and Goodyear that can help. You can read more about the service in another one of our blog posts.
