Sunday we welcome Pastor Mark Prestriedge, Chaplain at Park Place and Village Woods. His message is titled, "When It's Time to Quit Following Jesus," and is based on Matthew 5:43-48 and John 6:53-66. Pastor Joel, Michele, and some of the family are on vacation for two weeks. He will return to the office on July 30. If you have any needs or concerns in his absence, please contact your elder or the church office at (219) 558-0573 (staffed Tuesday, Thursday and Friday). Next Sunday we again welcome Pastor Mark Prestriedge.

                                                                 Make sure to meet those new to Pathway
                                                                    and invite your friends and neighbors
                                                                 who might be looking for a church home.
                                                                  PATHWAY’S FUTURE DEPENDS ON YOU! 

LEAD MUSICIAN NEEDED FOR NEXT SUNDAY'S WORSHIP SERVICE  – We are currently still searching for a keyboardist or guitarist for NEXT Sunday’s service (July 28). Due to vacations and other issues, we don't have a lead musician for this one service. If anyone in the congregation has an acquaintance that might be able to help us out, please contact a member of the Leadership Team.

PROFESSION OF FAITH CLASS – Pastor Joel is offering a Middle School and High School Profession of Faith Class in early August. If you are interested, please contact an elder, Pastor Joel, or the church office, (219) 558-0573, as soon as possible. 

FROM THE YOUTH MINISTRY DIRECTOR SEARCH TEAM – We continue to receive and review resumes of potential candidates and conduct phone and in-person interviews.

Please pass along the information and/or link to anyone who you think might be interested in the position. The position description and overview to be used in our search for potential candidates may be found at www.pathwaycrc.org/YouthDirector.

Do you enjoy being able to hear the worship service every Sunday morning? Thank a sound technician, and then volunteer to serve as one yourself! We are looking to add to our sound volunteers. No experience is necessary; we will train you over the next three months before you have to do it on your own. Please contact Rachel Drost (racheldrost@pathwaycrc.org) if you are willing to serve in this way.

PLEASE SHARE – Help us find a worship coordinator! If you have a Facebook account, go to facebook.com/pathwaycrc and share the post with the link to more information about our job opening. Be sure to include the original post. Let's get the word out there, and let's pray that God will provide someone who is the right fit for our church! 

SET UP/TAKE DOWN OF CHAIRS SUNDAY MORNINGS – Would You Help? We are in desperate need of help Sunday mornings setting up chairs and taking down chairs for worship starting at 8:15 a.m. each Sunday. If you can help even just one Sunday, please let the church office know, (219) 558-0573 or pathwayadmin@pathwaycrc.org

NURSERY VOLUNTEERS NEEDED – Do you have a love for infants and young children? Why not serve in the Pathway Nursery about once a month? If you are willing and available to help, please email the church office at pathwayadmin@pathwaycrc.org.

Please remember to check out our website, http://www.pathwaycrc.org/ for more information on all our programs and opportunities.
