The Illiana Division of Bible League International Volunteers host Selah in concert on Friday, September 14, 2018 at Bethel Christian Reformed Church in Lansing, Illinois. Limited seating—purchase your tickets online today at bibleleague.org/selah. (An automatic 20% discount is applied for online purchases of 10 or more tickets.) Proceeds and donations serve the under-resourced Church to transform lives through God’s Word. ​​​​​​​​​​​​

VOLUNTEER TEAMS – We would still like to add another sound tech and a few more people for setup/take down. Can YOU help? Ladies, we welcome your help. The servants’ list for these positions needs some gender diversification.

Opportunities to Serve

THIS Sunday is the final day to order your Pathway Polo Shirts. See sample shirts at the back table Sunday to order yours for $25 each. 

A BIG Thank You to all our Vacation Bible School volunteers and those that baked for us! We had a great group of about 18 kids and planted seeds about giving God our best, loving your neighbor and, most of all, to love God! A few pictures will be on the before-worship slide show Sunday or you may view them on our website under the Media tab, under Photo Gallery or you may click on this link:  http://pathwaycrc.org/photoGalleryPhotosv2.aspx?viewphotoalbumguid=b3628dbe-8821-4d47-95af-6c09ad42ecb1&parentnavigationid=40999

Campus Life from the Lake Central group will be attending a summer camp this summer for one week. Ten students from the Lake Central group are attending and are each looking for $100 sponsors. Each student is going to work at the Caring Hands Soup Kitchen in Hammond for 6 hours to receive the sponsorship. Do you have a heart for impacting high schoolers especially some that have never heard about Jesus before? Checks will be made payable to Youth for Christ. See Terri if this interests you. 

Save the Date:  A Mommy’s Haven Benefit will be held at Crown Point Christian School on Saturday, August 4 from 11 am.-3 pm. Volunteers are needed for the car show, set up, and a lot of other areas. Contact Lauren@mommyshaven.org if you would like to serve at this fundraiser. 

August 7 is the Dyer Night Out and August 10 is the St. John Corn Roast event. We will be hosting a Pathway Booth at both of these fun, summer events. Looking forward to spreading the word about Pathway to our neighbors!

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

From Pastor Joel

This Sunday I will share synod people stories in the context of the church’s call to bring the gospel to the nations. The Christian reformed church is a wonderfully diverse denomination filled with saving stories of God’s grace.
