ONGOING

Naming the space at 1401 6th Ave
We need a name for the new space at 1401 6th Ave and would like input from the whole community on what that should be! While we as a worshiping body will continue to be “SOMA,” the community center itself needs a name that communicates that it is a safe and meaningful multi-purpose space in the city. If you have ideas, please share them on your visitor cards.

Volunteers needed for Building UP
The Carnegie Free Library of Beaver Falls and TRAILS Ministries are partnering together to bring science-based programs to kids in kindergarten through middle school. The program is called Building UP and they are in need of volunteers to help! The program runs on certain Tuesdays from 4:15-5:30pm. If interested, please contact Christine Kroger (christine.kroger@mac.com or 724-513-3570) or reply to this email.

Instrumentalists needed
If you play an instrument (guitar, keyboard, percussion, etc), the Music Team could really use you!! Please reply to this email if you are interested in sharing your gifts with the SOMA community.

Sharing Testimonies & Art
If you would like to take some time during our weekly gathering to share your testimony of how God has worked in your life, read a poem, or show some of your artwork, please let us know! You can reply back to this email with what you’d like to share.

COMMUNITY CONCERNS

If you’ve got something to share with SOMA’s community by way of prayer request or a call for help from the body, let me know and I’ll put those here.
Betsy’s Healing
Betsy McGurgan had hip replacement surgery last week. Keep praying for her to heal well.
