10:00am – Disunity in Christ 

Lisa Hosack will lead us through a five-week class uncovering the hidden forces that keep us apart.  Lisa is chair of the sociology and social work department at Grove City College. 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.

More details and the full schedule are attached to this email. Transportation is available for Geneva students.

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.


dWELLings Project – October 1st 

We will be working on a dWELLings home repair project on Saturday, October 1st at 9am.  If you are able to help out, please meet at 2010 7th Ave in Beaver Falls.

Men’s Night – October 5th

On Wednesday, Oct 5th @ 6:30pm at The Well, Anthony Regan & Jerome Cousar will be hosting a Men’s Night for SOMA guys to meet, hang out, and encourage each other.

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 SOMA’s mission to glorify God by introducing people to Jesus.

At some point during each day this week, pray this prayer of St. Patrick:

Christ be with me, Christ within me,

Christ behind me, Christ before me,

Christ beside me, Christ to win me,

Christ to comfort and restore me.

Christ beneath me, Christ above me,

Christ in quiet, Christ in danger,

Christ in hearts of all that love me,

Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.
