Sunday Pastor Joel concludes his series entitled, "Amazing Jesus". His message is "Build Well" based on Matthew 7:24-29.  

FAREWELL POTLUCK THIS SUNDAY – For Pastor Joel's last Sunday, you are invited to a Potluck lunch THIS Sunday, September 15 following the morning worship service. Please bring a dish to pass. Dessert will be provided. Contact the church office with questions.

During Sunday’s Farewell Potluck there will be an opportunity to write a short note to Pastor Joel or any Zuidema family member. Special cards and pens will be provided for you to share a meaningful memory, a Bible verse, words of encouragement, or just a farewell message. It will be a wonderful way to express our appreciation for Pastor Joel’s service here at Pathway.

 Catechism for 6th-8th grade and 9th-12th grade will begin NEXT Sunday, September 22. Duane Mejan and a partner will host the middle schoolers (6th-8th grade). Dan Eenigenburg will host the high schoolers (9th-12th grade). Class begins at 9:00 a.m. Class will be held all Sundays of the month except for the last Sunday. We will also be off on holidays and school breaks.

We have a Pathway Kids Coordinator! Pathway Kids will begin NEXT Sunday, September 22. The children will be dismissed from the worship service just before the sermon and are available for pick up immediately following.

HIGH SCHOOL YOUTH GROUP – Pathway Youth Group will meet NEXT Sunday, September 22 from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. Invite your friends! If you have any questions, please contact the church office at (219) 558-0573.

SEPTEMBER HAS A 5TH SUNDAY – September 29 is the 5th Sunday of September so it is Name Tag Sunday, we will receive a Benevolence Offering and celebrate Holy Communion.

Pathway will host a Blood Drive on Sunday, November 10 from 8:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. with the Bloodmobile at Crown Point Christian School. Sign up information coming soon.

 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

SOUND TECHNICIANS – 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.



From Pastor Joel

John closes his gospel in awe of his Friend and Master writing, “Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.” Jesus was amazing. He was the only perfect human (and fully God as well) who ever lived. Everything was done perfectly all the time. Sunday we watch Jesus turn a building illustration into a teaching on spiritual foundations. His teaching was amazing. While salvation through the cross was the crux of His work, His rabbinical teaching method was intended to convey the deep truths of the kingdom in ways that packed a punch.

So join me in being amazed, humbled, inspired, and transformed by the perfect Jesus.

See you on Sunday,

The Leadership Team
