Dear Pathway Family,
As you already know, the entire state of California has mandated a “shelter in place” order, which essentially means we must stay in our homes and only leave for essential purposes (e.g., important healthcare visits, groceries, etc.). This order has now been updated and extended to May 31, however, some restrictions will be eased and tools will be put in place to strengthen the containment of COVID-19. Please read the updated official statement for details on the loosened restrictions and other important information. It has been a trying time for all of us, but let’s continue to do our part to protect the most vulnerable populations and follow this order as carefully as possible.
Here are some notes we wanted to pass on to you:
Live Sunday Services. We will continue to have live Sunday service for as long as we are able, so please tune into our Facebook page on Sunday at 9:30am for a pared down and intimate service. In this age of technology, it is a blessing that we can still connect and worship together in spirit. The service will be recorded and available online after the service is completed. Please note that you do not need a FB account to access the service. A link will also be available on our website.
Prayers. Prayers are abounding these days. If there is something specific for which you would like the pastors to pray, please submit a prayer request at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will be sure that at least one pastor will receive it and pray over it for you.
Connect with a Pastor. This time of uncertainty - financially, socially, and spiritually - can be a trying time for many. If you would like to have a virtual home visit with one of the pastors, they are available to have a FaceTime or Zoom call with anyone who is seeking it. Please email email@example.com to set up a call. Or, you can go to our website to email the pastors directly.
Compassion Fund. During this crisis, some have been hit harder financially than others. If you would like assistance, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Also, if you would like to help our brothers and sisters in need, you can make an online donation (please direct donation to “Compassion Fund”) or through our mobile app (available on Apple or Android phones).
In this unprecedented time of uncertainty, we are so grateful for our Pathway family. Let’s continue to lift each other up, encourage each other, pray for each other, and meet (virtually) in CGs or otherwise. While we care for those in our inner circles, let’s not forget to reach out with compassion to those in our communities as well. We won’t be hindered by fear, but instead, will move forward with wisdom, find strength in prayer, and keep our eyes on the Lord, trusting His heart.
Resources for information regarding the COVID-19/novel coronavirus:
Pathway Live Stream Sunday Services
As mentioned above, Pathway’s Sunday services will be streamed live every Sunday at 9:30am via our Facebook page. A link will be provided through our website as well. It will be recorded and be made available anytime after the live service. We are continuing to improve our efforts to allow for uninterrupted time of worship. If you run into issues with the broadcast pausing or have streaming issues, please go back a few minutes in the video and continue watching from that point. As you may have already seen, for families with young children, there are recorded Sunday School lessons for Little Lambs, Noah’s Ark, and Wisdom Chapel children. They will be available on FB following the live stream service.
Pray for Pastor Joyce
Please continue to pray for Pastor Joyce’s full and complete recovery. Follow up surgery should be scheduled soon. If you feel led to support Pastor Joyce financially, you can Venmo her daughter, Lauren (@Lauren-Jeong-3). Please use this fee-free method over other methods that collect fees such as her gofundme page, which you can read for more updates.
May 28 - Praise & Prayer Night
The amazing response and success of our last Praise & Prayer Night highlighted how much people are seeking to pray together as one body of Christ during these uncertain times. To meet this need, we will host another gathering on Thursday, May 28 at 7:30pm via Zoom for more praise and prayer. Check your email for details and zoom info as the date approaches. Contact email@example.com if you have any questions.
Calling all Dads!
DADS, please help us to compile a video of your best dad jokes for Father’s Day! Send in a short clip of your favorite dad joke (or just email the joke with a picture of yourself) to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 14. Thank you!
SAM Camp Volunteers
Mark your calendars! SAM camp will start on July 27 this year. SAM Camp is a Christian-based summer camp where children from Grades 1-12 will have opportunities to enrich their academic, art and fitness skills. This is all taught from a biblical perspective and teaching is very hands-on. We need about 40 more volunteers - if you are interested in serving as a volunteer or if you just want more information, email email@example.com. This is an excellent local mission opportunity and a wonderful way to impact the next generation of believers!
Updating Your Info
Recent Mother’s Day deliveries highlighted many holes we have in our congregation’s profiles. In order to best serve our church, both now and more especially once we move off our current campus, we would like to have the most accurate information possible. Please go to www.pathwaybible.ccbchurch.com to update your own profile. Please don’t forget to add your children! Contact your CG leader or firstname.lastname@example.org to help create a new profile if you don’t have one yet. Also, to better prepare for our transition to our own Children’s Ministry once we're off this campus, please help us by clicking this link to register your children.
FB Live with PCharles
Join Pastor Charles every Monday at 8:30am on FB for a live chat. You can hear his devotion, ask questions, pray, and catch up.
Updated Pathway Prayer Meetings
Join your brothers and sisters in Christ in prayer through our new zoom prayer meetings:
Every Sunday at 11:00am. This is when the Prayer Ministry meets to pray over personal requests, our church, and our community. Everyone is welcome to join. You can join us through zoom by using the meeting link and meeting ID: 279 871 965.
Every Friday at 7:00am. Use this meeting link and meeting ID: 200 854 948.
List of Small Business Owners
We would like to compile a list of small business owners within our Pathway community in order to give people the opportunity to help support those businesses, particularly during this health crisis when small businesses have taken a big hit. Please contact email@example.com if you would like to add your small business to the list or if you would like a copy of the list.
Children & Youth Ministry Registration
Even in the midst of this crisis, our plans to move off the New Vision campus remain. Please click this link to register your children so that we know exactly what we need to meet the needs of all the families who will be joining us at the new location.
Ways to Give
In addition to giving on our website, you may give by texting through your phone: text “PATHWAYBIBLE” to 77977 to give. Please note that if you text PATHWAY only, your donations will go to another church.
