DID YOU KNOW?
The 2019 1 st quarter net income was $37,630. SOTH gave $17,750 to 15 different charities in Fountain Hills, State of Arizona, US and overseas to further our mission…”to share the good news of Christ’s love with all people.”    

We burned our SOTH mortgage last Sunday, May 5.  This accomplishment was due in a large part from a past congregation member who moved back up north, but still left $100,000 to SOTH upon her death. This money in combination with that from the foundation provided a wonderful blessing to our church family and ministries. We are debt free!
