Here you will find a family 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!

Soma Kids Drop Off (0-5 years old): We are following WA State guidelines for childcare centers, with small groups that are spaced out, and specific cleaning procedures. Be sure to select Soma Kids Drop Off for your kiddo(s) when you register your family for the service.
Kids Gathering (kindergarten - 5th grade): Elementary kids start the service with their families, then are released after worship to Kids Gathering - a lesson and activities to engage them with the sermon topic and who God is. Kids gathering will happen two Sundays each month (when you register your family for the service, there will be an option to select Kids Gathering - if there is no option then it is a Family Sunday).
Family Sunday: On Sundays with no Kids Gathering, kids kindergarten - 5th grade stay in the service with their families, and activitiy bags will be available to keep help them engage with the service. The Fellowship Hall will be open for families with small kids who need some space to move and play during the service.
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.
