At Element Church we desire that everyone would hear from God daily through the Bible! SOAP gives us a shared method of engaging the Bible and applying what we read in a practical way. As a result we believe God will re-pattern how we think, transform our hearts, and help us become more like Jesus!

Access the reading guide by downloading the Element App (here)

How we engage the Bible together:
  • We read one chapter from the Bible daily
  • We read the same chapter from the Bible daily
  • We talk with each other about how it is impacting us daily
