Wednesday, September 2nd @ 6:30pm

SomaChurch believes in the power of prayer. We believe that God will heal our land when we humbly seek His face (2 Chronicles 7:14). We believe that our prayers reach across the world and impact the nations (Psalm 2:8). We believe that sick people will be healed when they are anointed with oil and prayed for by Godly men and women who are filled with faith (James 5:14-16). We believe that God listens to all of our pleas for help and will bring His answer in His own way and timing (John 14:14).

Because we believe, we gather. Encounter services are once a quarter on Wednesday nights @ 6:30pm. Join us for an extended time of worship, prayer and personal ministry.

Childcare is available for babies and toddlers, while Pre-K – 4th grade have their own Kids Encounter.

God has done amazing things in and through these Encounter Services. We hope you will come to minister and be ministered to!

After experiencing our first Encounter service, we realized, as a family, that was something that we had been missing in a church that we could call our home.


At the end, when we gathered in groups, I had a word spoken over me that was very encouraging and timely.


My favorite part of the night was being able to encourage one another in our groups... some of the most impactful words were spoken by students. I can't wait for our next Encounter service.


Corporate prayer for Israel and our nation, then small groups joined in prayer. This night was a spiritual benchmark, a "stone of remembrance" for me.


What can I expect at Encounter Service?

Encounter Service is ultimately an opportunity to connect with God and His people through worship, prayer and personal ministry.

We always worship the Lord together through song. We also take time to pray for the nations, the church (both globally an locally), and each other.

What always stands out to people is the welcoming atmosphere and belonging environment at Soma. And you will experience that in an even more tangible way at Encounter during our “personal ministry” time, where we break into small groups to pray for and encourage each other.

Can I come if I go to a different church?

Of course. We are happy to bless and encourage you whether you call Soma your church home or not.

Will there be childcare?

Yes, although we call it a Kids Encounter for pre-school age and younger. At Kids Encounter we teach your children how to worship, pray for one another, and listen to God’s voice. Several of our kids have even received Jesus as their Savior at Kids Encounter.
