In order to provide ongoing programs and to continue to serve your needs, the church depends on its parishioners to give faithfully and with a joyful heart. Membership dues and stewardship donation compromise the largest portion of our church income, and they are vitally important to ensure that the church meets its financial obligations. To safeguard the future of Soorp Asdvadzadzin Church, it is important that the church be supports by its faithful parishioners rather than relying on unpredictable outside sources and activities for financial security.
“Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:7

Sharing the gift of ourselves is how we express our gratitude to our heavenly Father.
