The Lord’s Prayer – Message Version

Here’s what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you won’t be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense his grace. The world is full of so-called prayer warriors who are prayer-ignorant. They’re full of formulas and programs and advice, peddling techniques for getting what you want from God. Don’t fall for that nonsense. This is your Father you are dealing with, and he knows better than you what you need. With a God like this loving you, you can pray very simply. Like this: Our Father in heaven, reveal who you are. Set the world right; Do what’s best - as above, so below. Keep us alive with three square meals. Keep us forgiven with you and forgiving others. Keep us safe from ourselves and the Devil. You’re in charge! You can do anything you want! You’re ablaze in beauty! Yes. Yes. Yes.

Super Bowl of Caring

THE SOUPER BOWL OF CARING continues this year in an ONLINE ONLY format from January 14 to February 14. Beginning this week we will have the opportunity to show our support for our partners  GAITHERSBURG HELP (basic needs assistance in our local area) and CITY GATE (DC organization that feeds at risk children). We invite our Pathways family and friends to give to those in need as you are able. All donations will be equally divided among both organizations. Thank you for your support!
ON SOUPER BOWL SUNDAY - FEBRUARY 7, we still want to be able to share together so please make your best Chili or Soup Recipe on that weekend and send a picture of the completed dish along with the ingredients (and instructions for making it if it's not a family secret) to Pastor Clark at Pictures and information for each dish will be posted on the church Facebook page for everyone to try at home!

Let's embrace this time in new and exciting ways until we are all able to be back together!

Text: Deuteronomy

Bible Project Overview of Deuteronomy

Watch the overview video on the book of Deuteronomy, which breaks down the literary design of the book and its flow of thought. In Deuteronomy, Moses gives final words of wisdom and warning before the Israelites enter the promised land, challenging them to be faithful to God. Look for the relevance of this Old Testament book in our lives today.
