Sophia Women’s Group is an organization for women at Desert Mission United Methodist Church. We offer a variety of activities ranging from supporting church functions to our own social group meetings.  Sophia also encourages activities that include our members’ “passions”. Meetings are generally followed by lunch at a member’s home or restaurant to encourage fellowship.

Our scheduled events can be found in the church bulletin and on the church calendar on this website:

Programs and activities vary and reflect the needs of our church and community.

Our name SOPHIA is derived from the Hebrew word “Hokmot” which is the feminine aspect of the wisdom of God.  The icon on this page is of St. Sophia and her three daughters, Faith, Hope, and Love.  Our goal is to be a work in progress that embodies these qualities.

Please join us at our meetings and/or activities as we continue to grow in wisdom, faith and love.  For additional information, please contact the Church Office at: 480-595-1814 or email: and a Sophia member will contact you.
