S.O.A.P.Y. – Your daily dose of scripture.
We invite you to participate in S.O.A.P.Y. It’s our way to read and reflect on daily passages from the Bible and connect to scripture as a community of Christ followers. You can pick up a bookmark in the lobby of either building, you can visit the SOAPY page on our website, or you can subscribe to receive it sent to your email every morning. We hope this will be a great tool to help your continued growth with Jesus.
