Here you will find a family of families, growing together and learning to follow Jesus. Our mission is to make disciples who make disciples, so that every man, woman, and child on the Eastside hears the good news of Jesus!
We will gather for a special event this Sunday, September 20th. More details on our Celebration Sunday event page.
If you have lawn/camping chairs, please bring them! Masks encouraged at all times. Masks required if going inside the building (bathrooms) or if 6 foot distance cannot be maintained.
Please download our church app (search "Soma Eastside Church" on your app store - it's free) prior to the service. Song lyrics and scripture readings will be posted to the app to use during the service.
Follow along at home with the liturgy & song lyrics for this service. You can also find these posted on our church app (search "Soma Eastside Church" on your app store - it's free).
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.
