The Bible is one unified story that leads us to Jesus. In this story we discover the Church to be surprisingly central to the cosmic plans of God to restore all things in Christ. In this series we will trace Jesus’ work in building, maturing, and protecting His Church as He deploys us to make disciples and expand his kingdom. We’ll have the opportunity to directly apply God’s design for the church in several areas, like biblical leadership, for example. This next year we will put up candidates and potentially instal elders and deacons to serve Soma SRV, as we mature from a “church plant” that is growing to become a “church.” Please join us in praying God uses this series to shape us for his purposes in the East Bay and beyond!
We gather as a whole church on Sundays from 9:30am – 11am at the Sycamore Clubhouse (635 Old Orchard Drive in Danville).
Looking for a Bible reading plan for the New Year? We recommend the “Read Scripture” plan from The Bible Project. With the goal of seeing the Bible as one unified story that leads us to Jesus, this plan is broken up thematically and is sequenced for 20 minutes of reading a day. The plan can be downloaded here, and more info can be found on The Bible Project website. Check out the video below for an overview of the plan, and the philosophy behind it:
As a practical outworking of what we are learning from the Seek Justice sermon series, we are launching the Seek Justice Project. Each MC will be given $2000 of Soma’s mission budget to seek justice and flourishing for others. As an MC you may increase this amount by giving directly to your Seek Justice Project fund.
Let the following values shape this project:
Relational—build relationship with the people or organization
Intentional—invest time and prayer into a decision
Empowering—do your best to empower not enable
Every Heart Invested—each member of the MC contributes to this project
Begin right away with prayer, asking God to lead and direct your steps. The (soft) deadline for finishing the project is March 31, 2016. However, we hope that this won’t be a short-term project, but instead develop into a long-term, loving engagement with people in need.

Soma is a Danville church, San Ramon church, Walnut Creek church, and Concord church. How can that be? Because we have groups, called Missional Communities, that gather each week in these cities. We also gather as a whole church on Sundays.
