War . . .

Author: Pastor Joel
October 27, 2017

Please join us Sunday as my sermon is titled "War" and is based on Ephesians 6:10-13. There are two extremes that are dangerous with the devil. One, consider him more powerful than he is. Two, pretend he doesn’t exist.On Sunday we will get an accurate fix on the Devil’s schemes, and our strategy for combating our dangerous enemy. Do not forget that God is stronger, and that you have authority in Christ to battle him.

Sunday is Youth Sunday, Name Tag Sunday and Catechism and Pathway Kids will NOT meet. Our worship service will be followed by our Fall Potluck!

BENEVOLENCE OFFERING – Sunday begins a new Pathway routine. Every 5th Sunday of the month, an offering will be taken for benevolence, and we will celebrate Holy Communion. Benevolence offerings will be used to help the poor or those with a short-term need.

COMMUNION THIS SUNDAY, OCTOBER 29 – On Sunday we partake of Holy Communion in celebration of our oneness in Jesus Christ.
