The Joy of Belonging comes from becoming
practicing Stewards by being responsible caretakers
of His House of Worship and lovingly participating
in the life of His Church.

We are truly grateful to you for your stewardship
devotion which enables our Church to faithfully serve

Recognizing that as Christians, we are all referred to by the same title, “Servant”, “The servant of God…” What an honor it is to share that title with each of you. Though we all share the exact same title, each of us may not share the exact same talents or gifts. Your gifts are uniquely yours but necessary and needed by each of us. Isn’t it amazing that the wonderful work of the Lord, is so magnificently expressed and touches so many lives, through the many ministries of Saint Sophia, and all of it, through the hands of volunteers, you, the Servants of God.
