Introducing Solomon’s Porch

Connecting the Gospel of the Kingdom to Ordinary Lives

What pathways do we have today for deep-dive discipleship? I have been considering this question for some time. I remember growing up in the church where it was the tradition to regather at some point during the week for meaty discipleship content.

But today we live in a busy, fast-paced world. There is so much else going on in life that demands our time. To have a discipleship class may feel like one more thing. Yet, Christian growth and formation usually require intentionality and cultivation. Is it possible to do this well, yet not make it too burdensome?

We hope so. Starting next year, we will introduce a ministry called Solomon’s Porch. The meeting times would be midweek from 6—8pm for deeper dive in discipleship content. It will be done in modules—therefore, not indefinite. They will be modules of about 4 weeks at a time.

The aim of Solomon’s Porch is to engage Scripture and Christian History in a way that shapes us as Christians in today’s world. We begin with a meal together (bring your own dinner, the church will provide drinks and dessert), then we move to a time of worship, interactive teaching, and close in prayer. The hope is that the content will be worth your time as will the deepening of relationships within the community.  

The name, Solomon’s Porch, is drawn from the story of the early church and refers to the part of the Temple complex where the disciples gathered for fellowship and teaching.

Please watch for more information in the weeks ahead.
