Here’s what SOMA’s up to:


September 18th: Worship Gathering, Children’s Environment, and Fellowship Meal
We will meet at our regular time of 11:15am at The Well (1401 6th Ave) to share conversation, pray and sing together. We will be starting a 4 week series on SOMA’s mission & values this week.  This Sunday will be about the mission to “glorify God by introducing people to Jesus.” Children’s Environment will be available for kids in kindergarten through 5th grade. After the service, we’ll share in a light fellowship meal together.

10:00am – Disunity in Christ – starting September 18

Lisa Hosack will lead us through a five-week class uncovering the hidden forces that keep us apart.  Lisa heads up the sociology department at Grove City College, and we’ll be using the book Disunity in Christ by Dr. Christena Cleveland.  Class starts Sunday, September 18th and will meet at 10am in the basement of our building.

5:00pm – A Life Worth Living –  starting September 18

We’ve been invited to join our friends at First Baptist Church in town for this 9-week video series, starting Sunday, September 18th from 5-7pm.  Generally, we’ll meet at their building (616 17th St in Beaver Falls), have a small dinner together, watch a video teaching on the book of Philippians, and have small group discussion.  This first week however will kickoff with a potluck dinner in Ellwood City. More details and the full schedule are attached to this email. Transportation is available for both Geneva students and residents this week.

Help Rebuild Richwood

For 10 weeks, starting in September, we’re invited to join FPC Beaver in their effort to send volunteers to Richwood, WV for 4-day trips to help them rebuild their community after the massive flooding of a couple months ago.  If you’d like to learn more about joining in this work, contact Pastor Marc at info@thesomagathering.org.


Kid’s Movie Night – starting in October

We’d like to start hosting movie nights for elementary school kids at The Well on Sunday evenings once per month. To pull that off, we’ll need some volunteers who are willing to hang out with the kids during the movie and help serve food. Clearances are required, which mostly can be obtained online for free, and help is available to walk through that process. We’re also asking for food donations, such as hot dogs and chips, to serve at each movie night. If you are willing to help out in either of these areas, please reply to this email or talk with Kristen Slebodnik.


Spiritual practice for this week based on John 20:19-22

– Meditate on John 20:19-22

– Imagine you’re in the room with Jesus/disciples

– Pay attention to how you feel about Jesus’ words ‘Peace be with you’, ‘I am sending you’, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit’
