St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Church
“Let the children come to Me, so not to hinder them; for to such belongs the Kingdom of God. Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the Kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” (Mark 10:14-15).
Welcome Sunday Church School Parents!
One of the most important ministries of the Church since Apostolic times has been to see to the spiritual education (κατήχησις-catechism) of its members and especially the children. The greatest gift, the most precious inheritance we can give to our children is our Orthodox Christian Faith. Jesus makes it clear that He wants children to come to know Him, and that He considers it a grave offence for an adult to hinder this process.
The Sunday Church School would like to thank all of the families for their continued support of our ministry. We hope everyone had a wonderful summer and will join us in-person in the Fall. Registration information has been send to all previously enrolled families. If you are new to our ministry please fill out the forms and email to email@example.com or mail them to the Church. If you have any questions please contact Janice Novick at firstname.lastname@example.org or 847-544-8984.
