What can you say about @sophia.cali? Well, for one, you can say that she's more mature than most teenagers you meet these days and can rock a sarcastic conversation for as long as you're willing to commit to one. She currently serves Renovation Church as a Jr. Assistant in our nursery once a month [special thanks to Rosalie Waldren for posing with Sophi in the pic above] on Sunday mornings and is also a gifted vocalist on the worship team. Her attitude is always bubbly and joyful. She probably doesn't like that we called her bubbly... but she'll just have to deal with it, won't she? We could all post hilarious meme's to her Facebook page, only she's too cool for that and doesn't even have a Facebook Page. What the heck does she do when she's in line at Wegmans? Talk to people?
Here are some fun facts about Sophi:
1. Sophi is excited to be attending Cedarville University in Ohio come fall of 2019! She's not quite sure on a major yet, but is thinking areas related to communications and journalism. Eventually, she wants to go to law school.
2. Sophi loves volleyball! She's proud of she and her team making it to regionals the last two years and is hoping to make states this year as it's her senior year.
3. Her favorite Bible passage is Psalm 1. She said, "It helps to ground me when life feels like it's going crazy, as it often can. It reminds me not to let emotions and life circumstances control me but to, instead, hold fast to something unmoving and unchanging." 4. When asked who Sophi looks up to as a Christian in her life, she said she looks up to her mom. Sophi said, "My mom embodies what it means to be a strong, Christlike woman. Whenever I'm struggling I know my mom will always be there to support me and refocus me on biblical truth. It's such a comforting thing to know she's always there. I only hope to be half as great as she is when I'm older." We thank God for the gift that Sophi Cali is to the Reno family, her maturity as a young adult in our world today, and look forward to see God's plan for her life unfold.
We are so excited to announce @rstevesjr as Men's Ministry Leader and Val Cali as Women's Ministry Leader. These two have served the men and women of Reno faithfully and we are so excited to see how God will use them in these roles! Leave them a word of encouragement below.
Renovation Church exists to glorify God by presenting the Gospel to every man, woman, and child connecting them into loving relationships with Christ and others. Our desire is to be part of the rebuilding of the northern suburbs of Syracuse and central New York on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
