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.
Richwood Work Trip
From December 1st-4th, a team from SOMA, Tiger Pause, & Geneva College will work alongside the men and women of Richwood, West Virginia as they rebuild their community following extreme flooding several months ago. If you’re an adult interested in being a part of this team, email email@example.com, or call Pastor Marc at 724.774.6398, ext 104.
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.
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.
