Here’s what SOMA’s up to:
We will not be meeting together for our regular time of worship on Sunday, December 25.
Instead, you are encouraged to participate in the following:
Christmas Eve with Ashes to Life – Saturday, December 24 at 3:00pm
We’ll be joining our friends at Ashes to Life Ministries again this year for a Christmas Eve gathering. We’ll meet at 3:00pm at their place: 831 4th Ave in Beaver Falls.
Attending/ Volunteering for the Christmas Day Dinner – Sunday, December 25
For the past 23 years, the Beaver Falls Christian Assembly Church has hosted a community dinner on Christmas Day, serving as many as 1,200 people during the day! The dinner takes place from 11:30am-3:00pm at the Beaver Falls High School. All are welcome to eat! If you’re interesting in donating or volunteering to help serve dinner, contact 724-846-3751 and ask for Rebecca.
Drop In Hours – Wednesday, December 21st
The Well will be open for anyone in the community to come enjoy the space, use the wifi, and have some coffee from 7:00am – 10:00am every Wednesday.
Men’s Night – Wednesday, December 21st
Every Wednesday @ 6:30pm at The Well will be a Men’s Night for SOMA guys to meet, hang out, and encourage each other.
Drop In Hours – Friday, December 23rd
Join in our Friday open hours at The Well! Anyone is welcome to come use the space from 10:00am – 1:00pm.
We have a lot of opportunities to be involved in our community this season! The Advent Flyer has all the details, including information on worship gatherings and ways to give.
Open Hours Volunteers Needed
We are looking for some more volunteer staff for Open Hours at The Well, particularly for Wednesday, December 28th (from 7-10am) and Friday, December 30 (from 10am-1pm). If you are available for those dates or would like to be involved during Open Hours on other dates, please let Dave know (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Richwood Work Trip – Postponed
Originally set for December 1st-4th, the trip to Richwood has been postponed until early 2017. Stay tuned for more details! The plan has been that 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.
Women’s Movement Group
The next session will start up again after the New Year. All women are welcome to join in!
SUGGESTED SPIRITUAL PRACTICE
During the Advent season, check out this daily Advent Devotional provided by the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary.
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.
Tyler & Maci
The Pattersons would like prayer for their relationships with family and each other, especially during the Christmas season.
Please pray that Robin would continue to be dedicated to the Lord and serve him. She would also like prayer for God to heal Miss Edna.
