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.
Pews for Sale
The pews currently located in the church building at 1401 6th Avenue are for sale! Anyone who is interested in purchasing any can email firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be responsible for picking up and transporting the pews you purchase. Proceeds will benefit the work of the space.
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.
Prayer for Beaver Falls
Please pray for our community, particularly for those affected by the shooting on Saturday, and pray for the end of a culture of violence.
