Training for Everyday Mission

fgfe banner

Surprise — If you call yourself a follower of Jesus, he’d call you a missionary!

You may never go halfway around the world, but because of God’s work in you, you are on mission. As everyday missionaries, God has sent us to live out his Great Commission in the ordinary, all-too-busy, and even mundane moments of our lives.

        But what does an everyday missionary do?

        Where and when does everyday mission happen?

        How can you possibly share the gospel – without killing your relationships?

Ben Connelly, author of Field Guide for Everyday Mission, will lead this 3-hour training with lots of practical ways to show and share the gospel with those around you. Duke and Caroline Revard will be hosting this event at their home and dinner will be provided. Please RSVP on Eventbrite and bring $10 to the door to cover the cost of food for this training. Childcare will not be provided, so please arrange for this with your MC.

Endorsements for Ben Connelly’s book:

“If you find that “missional talk” can be a bit vague then this is the book for you. It’s an accessible guide to missional thinking. But even better, it will help put it into practice. It will show you what everyday mission can actually look like. Not every one of their 101 ideas will apply in your situation, but many of them will.”

-Tim Chester, Director, The Porterbrook Network, and author, A Meal With Jesus

“Bob Roberts and Ben Connelly have given the local church an incredibly helpful and practical guide to doing mission that will equip everyone from the seasoned practitioner to the brand new believer. It is simple and straightforward, yet it has the power to change both your neighborhood and the world for Christ.”

-Matt Carter, Pastor of Preaching & Vision, The Austin Stone Community Church, and co-author, The Real Win

Sunday Gathering


The Gospel of Mark

We have lots of questions about life and about our world. Why is there suffering? What is our purpose? How can we achieve peace? Where is God?

What questions are you struggling with?

The claim of Christianity is that the best way to make sense of life is to make sense of Jesus. In this series, as we answer questions about the real Jesus we will find answers to our deepest questions about our lives and our world.

Join us on Sundays, 9:30-11am, for our exploration of the earliest account of Jesus’ life: The Gospel of Mark.

Visit us here.

Soma is a Danville Church, San Ramon Church, Walnut Creek Church, and Concord Church, because we gather as the church in Missional Communities in all of these communities. You can also visit us at our Sunday Gathering.

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.

Hear others share their experience at Soma.

Have kids? We do too! We have a great kids program that they’ll enjoy.

reCreation Worship Night

An Evening of Worship

On Wednesday, July 1st from 7-8:30pm, reCreation (an artist community led by Kevin Toqe) will be hosting an evening of worship at the Fisher residence. This night will serve those who are looking to spend more time listening to God and experiencing His presence through music. For the reCreation artists, it’s a blessing to share what God has been doing in them!

We believe that no time spent in worship is wasted time. As we make room for God to work in us, we’re believing Him to do great things through us then and in the rest of our lives.

The worship time promptly begins at 7pm, going til 8:15pm with some time to mingle and pray with others til 8:30pm.
Bring a bible/journal if it is helpful to record what God shows you during this time.

What:      reCreation Worship Night
When:     Wednesday, July 1, 7-8:30pm
Where:   Fisher Residence (171 Hope Lane, Danville‎ CA)
