Here’s what SOMA’s up to:
 

WORSHIP GATHERING

February 26th: Worship Gathering and Fellowship Meal
We will meet at our regular time of 11:15am at The Well (1401 6th Ave) to share conversation, pray and sing together. Kathy Kinzer-Downs will be joining us this week to continue our series on the Beatitudes, focusing on “Blessed are the meek”. After the service, we will have a light fellowship meal.

10:00am – Christian Community Development class – Week 5

Herb Bailey – Importance of Listening

We are holding a 6-week Sunday morning class on the principles of Christian Community Development.  God has used CCD to shape SOMA’s culture for the last 5 years, and this is a chance to learn about it in more detail.  We’ll meet at 10am in the basement, no sign up needed.  Visit www.ccda.org to learn more about the Christian Community Development Association.

6:00pm  – CCO Fellowship

Each Sunday we will have a time for college students to hang out together from 6:00pm – 7:30pm. Each week will look different so join the CCO at The Well Facebook group to stay informed!
