Sights and Sounds
Here's a bit of church history...this video is from our 17th week as a church, meeting in the alley.
You'll note that the video is titled " 61is1 Church". This 61is1 reference is from Isaiah 61:1 which reads:
"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is upon me, for the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted and to proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed."
The 61is1 global ministry "morphed" into the Church in the Alley, although the core premise of the scripture is still very much alive. Church in the Alley has become the home port, the anchor and spring board to other ministries and outreaches. And, frankly, its fun for us to see how things have grown and matured in faith and spirit. Who knew? (obviously God did......) Click here to view the video....
Fast forward............a rough cut video from 2011......Church Baptism at the Ventura Harbor
Back in time again.....click on the Sermon player below to listen to a life changing sermon! This was recorded at SouthCoast Fellowship, Ventura CA in 2001. The speaker is Pastor Ron Mehl; and I was absolutely floored! It was the prelude to an ordination ceremony for Foursquare pastors, but it spoke directly to me.............give it your ear, God's hand is all over it! Pastor Norm
