CONGREGATIONAL MEETING THIS SUNDAY, JULY 15 FOLLOWING THE WORSHIP SERVICE – We will have a Congregational Meeting THIS Sunday 20 minutes after the worship service to vote on the Leadership Team’s recommendation. Pathway guests you are welcome to attend the meeting but only members may vote. If you cannot attend Sunday but have questions, please contact your elder. The agenda and revised financial estimates to match current financial numbers will be available Sunday at the meeting. The Leadership Team reminds the congregation that it’s important that one is not only a member but sees Pathway as one’s future church home in order to vote.

Opportunities to Serve

Elim Hope Pack School Supplies Drive has begun! You may place your supplies in the bin by the offering table on Sunday. For those that just want to support this financially, each pack costs $18 to ship and mail. School supplies and donations will be received until Sunday, August 5. Pamphlets with the supply list and details will be on the back information table Sunday. 

We are participating in two summer events that will help spread the word about Pathway to our community:  Tuesday, August 7 is the Dyer Nights Out event and Friday, August 10 is the annual St. John Corn Roast. Each event will include Pathway's spin wheel for giveaway prizes and an opportunity to meet some new friends. 

Red Cross Blood Drive:  On Sunday, August 12, the Bloodmobile will be at Crown Point Christian School from 8:00 a.m.- 11:00 a.m. Feel free to schedule your time online at redcrossblood.org. Schools are the biggest blood donors, so summer time is a desperate time for blood donations! Please take the time to donate; it’s greatly needed and saves lives! 

​If you have any questions on the above, contact Terri at pathwayoutreach@pathwaycrc.org.​

From Pastor Joel

We’ve been delighting in God’s generosity in creation and discovering how to respond to a generous God. On Sunday we celebrate the ultimate mark of His generosity, Jesus Christ who paid for human sin. We will view God’s generosity in Jesus through the eyes of the “disciple that Jesus loved,” John. 

Remember to follow me on Twitter @PastorJoelZ.


See you on Sunday,

Pastor Joel and the Leadership Team
