FOLLOW PASTOR JOEL AND MICHELE – ​Michele and Joel arrived safely in Turkey. They are visiting the seven churches of Asia Minor that are mentioned in the book of Revelation 2-3. 

If you’d like to follow their travels, see gtitours.org/follow or click on this link:  https://gtitours.org/online-tour-journal/turkey-180272/. The group’s name is “Turkey Pastors FAM Tour" and the beginning date is February 12. 

PRINCESS BRUNCH – THANK YOU to those that helped in any way with this HUGE and sold out event! We donated $6,430 to Mommy’s Haven! Photos have been posted to our website under Media, under Photo Gallery. Click on the following link to view:  http://pathwaycrc.org/photogalleryV2.aspx?parentnavigationid=40999.


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.

CLASSIS MEETING:  MARCH 6 – Over the last two years Pathway has quietly shouldered the financial accounting, advice, and support for Hope Church Lowell as it was conceived and born. Community Church in Roselawn has now begun to absorb that responsibility. They are better equipped resource and people wise. Thank you to all from Pathway who helped behind the scenes with Hope’s birth. A new church is launched and now meets Sunday mornings in Lowell. The move to their own place and to weekly morning services is going well! Classis will consider, and hopefully approve, the oversight of Community at the March Classis Meeting at Sunrise Church in Lafayette.
