We've put together a Family Room in the Fellowship Hall at Bellevue Way Community Church to better serve those with wiggly kids. The sermon will be live-streamed on a projector screen and safe activities, crafts, legos, and books are available to help keep kiddos engaged and point them to Jesus. If you have any questions please reach out to our Kids Director, Michele at .
When you register for the in-person service you'll see a separate selection for Family Room - please choose this option if you plan to utilize this space.
Check out our Advent 2020 page for information on the Grateful Advent series beginning in December. Here you'll find upcoming sermon topics and resources - including a printable Gratitude List.
At Soma, we are a family of families who are learning to follow Jesus. We believe that when God rescues us and adopts us into His family, we get a new identity as Family, Servants, and Missionaries. This is lived out 7 days a week, not only on Sunday mornings. We do life together in Missional Communities - we would love to get connected with you!
Our Sunday gathering is a chance for our larger church family to come together to celebrate, learn, and connect. We celebrate what God has done for us and share how He is moving in our lives. We hear preaching on God's word and equip ourselves with truth. We connect with our family and spend time catching up and listening to one another's stories.

What is communion?
Communion is a time to remember the sacrifice that Jesus made on the cross to save us from our sins, and reconnect ourselves with God. The bread and wine (or juice) symbolize Jesus' body and blood that were broken and shed when he died on the cross. You can read more about communion here. At Soma Eastside, we take communion every week as a way to respond at the end of the service.
Who can take communion?
We encourage everyone who has made a decision to follow Jesus to take communion. Being baptized is not a requirement, and we invite people from all faith backgrounds who are followers of Jesus to join in communion. Parents - how you involve your kids is up to you. You will see many families that pray and take communion as a whole family, even with young kids.
How do I set up communion at home?
Prepare some small pieces of bread and small cups of wine or juice. You can also dip the bread into the cup of wine or juice. This is a chance to repent (or apologize) for ways you have not followed God and reconnect with God by remembering his great sacrifice to save you. This can be done by yourself or with your family.
