JOIN US – CONGREGATIONAL MEETING – THIS Sunday approximately 20 minutes after the service, we will be having our Annual Congregational Meeting.

Guests and regular attendees are invited to join us as well.

MEALS FOR THE BULTEMAS – If you would like to bless the Bultema family of 4 with a meal, you may bring frozen meals to church THIS Sunday and place in the refrigerator. There are no food restrictions. Contact the church office with questions, (219) 558-0573.

ARE YOU WILLING TO GIVE TREY SEDERSTROM A RIDE HOME FROM CROWN POINT CHRISTIAN SCHOOL? – We still need some help in supplying Trey with a ride home. If you are able to help with this, please contact the church office at (219) 558-0573. Thank you to all of you who have already blessed their family!

CHURCH PICNIC PLANNING MEETING – The church wide summer picnic featuring a pig roast and games for all ages will be held Saturday, June 24 at Civic Park in St. John. There is a planning meeting THIS Monday, May 22 at 7:00 p.m. at the church office. Please contact the church office if you would like to be included, (219) 558-0573.

MOMSCONNECT – We will meet Thursday, May 25 from 9:30 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. in Schererville, Indiana. Child care is provided. For exact location and/or questions, please contact the church office at (219) 558-0573.

REMINDER REGARDING PATHWAY KIDS SUMMER PLANS – In order to refresh our teachers, Pathway Kids will take a break for the summer. Pathway Kids is our age appropriate worship program that occurs during worship services for children age 3 through 4th grade. If your young ones struggle with staying in worship for the whole time, we encourage parents to use the tables in the back of the auditorium. There are crayons and coloring books, and we will soon update with fidgets and other items, so there are more activities available. Nursery will continue to be staffed.

SUMMER SERMON SERIES – This summer Pastor Joel will teach a series on how science and the Christian faith fit together. Some believe science takes precedence over scripture. For those, the Bible is more of a fairy tale that warms our hearts. Others believe it's scripture that takes precedence over science. For those, the Bible lays out an exact time table for creation and humanity. But what if the two fit nicely together and inform each other? What if one reveals God in a general creative way, and the other reveals Him in a special redemptive way? My science friends may feel free to pass along their perplexing questions at the intersection of Bible and science, and/or their observations about how the two fit well together.

IS YOUR SON OR DAUGHTER GRADUATING? We would like to honor our graduates this year. Please email the church office, pathwayadmin@pathwaycrc.org if your child is graduating from grade school, high school, or a college or trade school. Please provide your child's name, the school they are graduating from and the school they are going to and their intended major (if they know). If they have received a degree of some kind and have found a job or still looking for a job, please let us know that also.

From Pastor Joel

Sunday we celebrate Ascension Day. Jesus died, rose, and then ascended to heaven where He rules over creation from His throne above! We’ll look at what practical implications this has for Christians. If you are not a Christian, please consider this message as a peek into what Christians believe, and why they live like they do. If Jesus reigns and rules, as Christians believe, then Christians can live their life with incredible purpose and confidence.

Next Sunday we will have a guest pastor as I will be away for church related business.  

Remember to follow me on Twitter @PastorJoelZ.

See you on Sunday,

Pastor Joel and the Leadership Team
