The Mission of Soul City Church is to lead people into a transforming relationship with Jesus. We believe that life in Jesus is a series of next steps, and your next step is unique to your relationship.
That’s why we created the Transformation Path— to help you take your unique next step in COMMUNITY.
Whether you’re exploring faith, trying to meet new people, looking to build a firm foundation or looking to be formed in the way of Christ, we want to equip you to take your unique next step and grow deeper in your relationship with Jesus. So what are you waiting for? Let’s get walking!
Looking for a safe space to explore God and ask questions? Alpha is the place for you.
At Alpha, participants explore questions about the existence of God, the purpose of life, the claims of Jesus and more. People from all backgrounds, religions and viewpoints attend. Some have never been to church before, while others have attended occasionally and are looking to get past religion and into meaningful relationship with God. Everyone is welcome, so pull up a chair.
New to following Jesus? Still have questions? Looking to establish a firm foundation for your faith to be rooted on? Foundation is the step for you. In Foundation, you’ll explore key tenets of the Christian faith through a variety of different courses. Read more about each course below.

The Bible Course seeks to give you a better understanding of God’s Word. Over the course of four weeks, you’ll journey through the entire narrative of scripture using 4 Small Words as a guide. Our hope is that by the end of the course you will have gained a better understanding of how God speaks through the Bible.

The Prayer Course seeks to give you a better understanding of how to connect with God through prayer. Over the course of six weeks, you’ll examine both the whys and hows of prayer. You’ll also have the opportunity to practice praying yourself.
Looking to go deeper in your transformational relationship with Jesus? Have a firm foundation, but looking for more formation? Then this is the step for you. Formation consists of two different courses that will assist you as you transform into the very image of Christ. Find out more below.
Teacher: Jeanne stevens
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.
Building Healthier relationships
Teacher: Kelly skiles
We long for relationships that are meaningful, relationships that are full of love and joy. Going through life alone is not part of God’s design for us! Over the course of 4 weeks, we’ll dive into our own strengths and use those to better understand ourselves in relationships. We’ll learn practical tools to help make our friendships deeper and stronger as we focus on topics such as conflict resolution, practicing empathy and how to better cultivate healthy dating relationships.
Looking to put it all together? Have a firm foundation and want to live out your faith in your everyday life? Invitation is the step for you. In Invitation, you’ll uncover the vibrant life God invites you into and discover how to participate in His work in the world.
In the Missional Living Course, we’ll use the Life Plan tool to help you begin living your life with purpose. Come prepared to do the important work of identifying your passions and discovering how God wants to use you in your home, community and everywhere in between.
Note: This level of the Transformation Path will not be available until March 2020. More information to come.
