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 email@example.com.

Kid’s Movie Night – starting in November
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.
We are recording our Sunday messages once again! You can listen to them here. That same link can also be found at the bottom of our website.
Below are the discipleship documents that were mentioned on Sunday:
Discipleship in Relationship – Check out the available ways that we can be following Jesus together.
Discipleship Process – This is SOMA’s official document on our discipleship process, looking at things that we cultivate and encourage.
SUGGESTED SPIRITUAL PRACTICE
Based on SOMA’s value of being missional.
During the week, pray from the Lord’s Prayer ‘Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.’ As you pray this, ask God for the ‘eyes to see’ what His good Kingdom looks like in your home, at your work, at school, in your community. And ask the Holy Spirit to help you live as an ambassador of that Kingdom here and now (2 Cor 5:16-21).
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.
Dani, who will be in Thailand for the next 5 months, asks that we pray for good heath and spiritual protection.
