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. 
Each morning this week, pray for the hope of resurrection over people, places, and things in your life.

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.

Haiti Mission Trip
Simone, Kamera, & Amanda shared with us this Sunday that they will be going to Haiti in May with Haiti H2O and their need for financial support in order to make the trip happen.  If anyone wants to support them in their learning, they can make out a check to SOMA with ‘Haiti’ in the memo.
Robin Hill
Robin would like prayer for Tasha to come to the Lord and for direction in her life. For herself, Robin asks for pray that she will be able to carry on and support her family and friends and stay strong for surgery. 
Pray for Tyler and Maci’s marriage and for their search to find a new apartment in Beaver Falls or New Brighton.
