Ministry Groups
Several fellowship and service organizations exist within our community, providing members with additional opportunities to give of their time and talents in furthering the work of God's Church.

Parish Council
Our parish council consists of fourteen members who are elected by the parish body and meet monthly with the guidance of the priest to conduct the business of the parish. Meetings are held regularly every second Tuesday of the month at 6:00 PM in the church hall. Contact: Andrew Evans (480-948-7929)  

Our choir sings regularly at all liturgical services and is always ready to accept new members who can add to the beauty of our praying and singing together. Proficiency exists in being able to sing (or learn) in English and / or Slavonic (Russian) as the circumstances warrant.  

Altar Servers
Our Altar Servers assist the Bishop/priest at the liturgical services.

Myrrh Bearers Altar Society
This organization of women of the Church was formed on February 12, 1961. It has historically provided an active channel through which women of all ages meet regularly and share ideas and efforts in service to and beautification of the Church. They have been responsible for purchasing and also sewing some of the following articles: vestments, linens for the Altar, curtains for the Royal Doors, Altar Server’s robes, etc. Great support is lent in fund raising projects and other activities within the Church. Contact: Heather Pheiffer

Youth Group
The Fellowship of Orthodox Christians in America (FOCA), (Phoenician "O" Club) provides the foundation for the youth activities in our Church.

The Mission of The Orthodox Church in America, the local autocephalous Orthodox Christian Church, is to be faithful in fulfilling the commandment of Christ to “Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…”

The Holy Scripture is a collection of books written over multiple centuries by those inspired by God to do so. It is the primary witness to the Orthodox Christian faith, within Holy Tradition and often described as its highest point. It was written by the prophets and apostles in human language, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and collected, edited, and canonized by the Church.

Daily Readings >

Holiness or sainthood is a gift (charisma) given by God to man, through the Holy Spirit. Man's effort to become a participant in the life of divine holiness is indispensable, but sanctification itself is the work of the Holy Trinity, especially through the sanctifying power of Jesus Christ, who was incarnate, suffered crucifixion, and rose from the dead, in order to lead us to the life of holiness, through the communion with the Holy Spirit.
