Here’s what SOMA’s up to:
February 5th: Worship Gathering, Children’s Environment, and Fellowship Lunch
We will meet at our regular time of 11:15am at The Well (1401 6th Ave) to share conversation, pray and sing together. We’ll be talking about the year ahead for SOMA and looking at Mark 6.

Visit www.ccda.org to learn more about the Christian Community Development Association.

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.
SUGGESTED SPIRITUAL PRACTICE:
Find an unfamiliar story in the Gospels – one you don’t usually spend much time with – and prayerfully spend time with it every day this week while asking Jesus to surprise you.
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.
Jerryn Carson’s brother, after a struggle with cancer, passed away last Monday. Please pray for the Carson family, especially for Jerryn’s mother, for whom her brother had been caring.
Maci would like continued prayers for her pregnancy and family relationships, especially in this next month.
