I61 Events, see the new tab above, read the description below………………
I61 Events are events that Solomon’s Porch members are either beginning themselves, attending, or supporting in some way. We hope to be able to make available to all our members and their friends opportunities to roll up their sleeves and bring help, healing, and reconciliation to the community we live in.
I61 Events are named after Isaiah 61:1-4, which is the passage Jesus quotes in Luke 4:16-21 to describes His ministry to His home town.
1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
2 to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn;
3 to grant to those who mourn in Zion– to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he may be glorified.
4 They shall build up the ancient ruins; they shall raise up the former devastations; they shall repair the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations.
We think that this should also summarize our ministry to our home town. We hope to bring the same kind of spiritual and physical healing to our home town that Jesus desired to bring to His, and did bring to so many others during His earthly ministry.
