We are excited to announce a midweek service at Pathway Church beginning Wednesday August 20, 2014. We will continue our Kids Clubs, which are growing – even over the summer! Our youth ministry, “Rooted” will continue to meet each week. Rooted is also experiencing a season of growth!
I am also excited to announce that Frank Stewart will continue his study class. Beginning August 20 he will teach on angels.
And, this leads me to explain our midweek service style gathering. Each week will include a time of worship and a time of prayer. Each week will also include a time of learning. We will have Bible studies and teaching, sermons, book studies, discussions, and more. We will begin by considering who we are as an Assembly of God Church. This year, our fellowship turns 100 years old. We have grown to be the greatest and most impacting missions fellowship in the world. We will explore our past, and our purpose. We will examine our current values and approach as a fellowship. We will also look forward to the future of the Assemblies of God.
I trust that you will make an effort to join together each Wednesday night from 7pm – 8pm for this powerful time!
Join us this coming Sunday (July 20, 2014) at Pathway Church for the conclusion of our BLUEPRINT sermon series. I will wrap up this series by preaching about the letter to the church in Ephesus found in Revelation chapter 2.
Here are the final two memory verses, from the messages: Bring them up and Dressed for Battle:
Ephesians 6:1, “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.”
Ephesians 6:11, “Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.”
We are nearing the end of our sermon series, “Blueprint” – a study of the book of Ephesians. The FINAL memory verse will be shared on July 13, 2o14: Ephesians 6:11, “Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.”
We will complete the series on July 20 and look at the message to the church in Ephesus found in Revelation 2:1-7.
Remember that God has a great plan, a BLUEPRINT for your life! Click here if you are interested in listening to this sermon series.
In the sermon series “BLUEPRINT” – I am challenging you to take advantage of the opportunity to “Dig Deeper” and make a strong investment in hiding God’s Word in your heart. I have been providing verses for you to memorize throughout this sermon series. These verses coincide with the messages of the “BLUEPRINT” sermon series. Here are these verses:
Ephesians 2:8-9, “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.”
Ephesians 2:10, “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
Ephesians 3:20-21, “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”
Ephesians 4:11-12, “Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. 12Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ.”
Remember to hide God’s word in your heart, Psalm 119:11.
What is Columbus 14? Here is a description of this powerful outreach.
Every year the Assemblies of God hosts a “Fine Arts Festival” for middle school and high school students. This is a ministry of the Assemblies of God designed to help students DISCOVER, DEVELOP, and DEPLOY their ministry gifts. Fine Arts is a place where students who have discovered their gifts can compete in a competition as part of the development of their gifts. Many students are proficient enough to compete nationally. This year’s National Fine Arts Festival is being hosted in Columbus, OH.
As part of this effort, the Assemblies of God has made a way for students to DEPLOY their ministry gifts. There is an annual missions trip as part of this National Fine Arts Festival each year. So, this year, there will be a missions trip to Columbus, OH. Assemblies of God students from all over the nation will arrive in Columbus to compete, serve in a missions trip, and join in a National Youth Convention held at Nationwide Area. The name for this entire festival is Columbus 14.
Pathway Church is one of several Columbus area churches who will serve as a host site for the missions trip that is part of Columbus 14. Each host site organizes an outreach or missions opportunity. Pathway Church is organizing a Vacation Bible School (VBS). We are looking for 20-30 people from the church to partner together to host this VBS. We will also host 30 – 50 students from across the county that will be assigned to our site as a part of this missions trip experience.
The Assemblies of God has written a VBS curriculum that we are using for this outreach called Mega Sports Camp. This VBS organizes the learning into opening and closing rallies for the kids, sports, and Bible lessons. Pathway Church will be hosting a Mega Sports Camp VBS from July 29 – August 1, 2015.
We need your help as we host this missions outreach. To volunteer, please sign up on site at Pathway Church or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
