The Mission of Soul City Church is to lead people into a transforming relationship with Jesus. We also know that not everyone in our community is at the same place in their journey. No matter where you are, life is full of questions, and while we can’t answer them all, we want to do our best to help.
The Transformation Path exists to empower and equip the Soul City Church community to take their unique next step and grow deeper in their transformational relationship with Jesus.
Whether you are exploring faith, looking to build a firm foundation or looking to be formed in the way of Christ, we believe that a life in Jesus is a series of next steps. This is why we created the Transformation Path so that you can take your unique next step.
Looking for a safe space to explore God and ask questions? Alpha is the place for you.
At Alpha, people attend from all backgrounds, religions, and viewpoints. Participants come to investigate questions about the existence of God, the purpose of life, the afterlife, the claims of Jesus. Some people want to get beyond religion and find a relationship with God that really changes life. Others come for the close, long-lasting friendships that are built during the Alpha course. Many guests have never been to church, others may have attended church occasionally but feel they have never really understood the basics of the Christian faith or simply aren’t able to articulate why they believe what they believe. Everyone is welcome.
The next virtual Alpha session will start Tuesday, October 6th.
Praying Through Course with Jarrett Stevens
Teacher: Kelly Skiles, Executive Pastor
Wednesday nights October 7th – October 28th. 7-8:30pm Virtually via Zoom
Whatever is going on with you right now, God is actually interested. And yet connecting with God through prayer can often feel foreign, challenging, or beyond our reach. But here’s the thing: You’re already awesome at prayer. You just don’t know it . . . yet. Whether you’re new to prayer, or God seems silent, or you need direction, or you don’t hear from God, or you’re grieving a loss in your life – you don’t have to let these obstacles keep you from God. There is a way for you to pray through! Over these four weeks you’ll learn practical prayer practices to help you connect with God in deep, fresh and transformational ways.

Conscious Christian Course with Jeanne Stevens
Wednesday nights November 4th – November 25th. 7-8:30pm In-Person and Virtually via Zoom
The Conscious Christian Course recognizes that so often in our faith we are sleepwalking. In order to experience true presence we must be attentive to what is happening here and now. Together we will explore what it means to wake up and be a conscious Christian by offering up our awareness, participation and willingness.
