Solomon’s Porch Retreat Center

A place to retreat and reconnect with the Father.

Solomon’s Porch Retreat Center

Solomon’s Porch is the former Hospital for Lynch, Kentucky. It is now used to house ministry teams, youth groups, reunions and hold mission planning meetings. It’s also a retreat for anyone who needs to get away with God and find peace and rest in the mountains or work! Whichever the case may be. The facility also includes meeting rooms and a gift shop.

2nd Annual Feed Lynch Project. First Reform Church, Landis, NC. Team Leader Chuck Misenheimer and his team passed out 750 turkey dinners on November 22, 2014.

Feed Lynch Project – Chuck Misenhiemer and his group of missionaries from North Carolina came to Lynch in December with one thing on their minds…Feed Lynch! Together, they prepared over 300 meals and set out in the neighborhood to deliver turkey dinners to all of the citizens of the city. Delivery of the meals was a blessing as they were able to minister to the community by sharing the love of God and the message of Jesus Christ.

The Lord sent us generous donations and contributors to make it possible for Meridzo Ministries to make sure that every student at James A. Cawood Elementary School received a brand new pair of shoes and socks. These are some photos taken at the school on the day of distribution.
