Our name "Soma" means "body of Christ" - and we work together to keep our church and our service running smoothly so we can be a blessing to our community. We'd love to have you on one of our teams!  Our hope is that everyone who calls Soma Eastside home is serving on a ministry team once a month. This includes older kids and teens - there are many opportunities to serve with parents or other leaders. See the details and contact info below.

SETUP TEAM - set up the church for service on Sunday. This includes setting up chairs, distributing bins to different areas, and assisting stage setup as needed. Kids/teens welcome with a parent.
