Welcome! Our church’s website exists to meet the needs of her members at different ages, and to help those members in times of hardship. We worship together as a community of Christian Coptic Orthodox believers. We support one another’s values and common beliefs through love and respect. We nurture the faith of our members in a variety of ways including divine liturgies, Sunday schools programs, spiritual meetings, and social activities.
The Season of the Church
A life of TRUE submission means living in complete obedience to the Holy Spirit. A person of TRUE submission accepts gladly whatever happens in their life and with thanksgiving, knowing that it was for their well being, whether in appearance or thought it is perceived as good or bad.
Anba Bishoy’s mother modeled submission during his childhood. An Angel of the Lord appeared to his humble mother and told her, “The Lord wants one of your sons to serve him forever,” and the angel pointed to young Bishoy. The mother asked the angel, “Can you please choose another, this son is the weakest of them all.” “He is weak,” the angel replied, “but the strength of the Lord will always be with him.” She then was submissive to the Angel of the Lord.
