Welcome to Worship at Pathways

John 14:11-14 NIV

10 God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have
shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.
11 We want each of you to show this same diligence to the very end, so
that what you hope for may be fully realized.
12 We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through
faith and patience inherit what has been promised.
13 When God made his promise to Abraham, since there was no one
greater for him to swear by, he swore by himself,
14 saying, “I will surely bless you and give you many descendants.”
15 And so after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised.

Sermon Series - "Faith Full"

Sermon Series: "Faith Full-Fueling your Faith in a World on Empty"
Half the Battle: When Believing Isn't Enough
Jonathan Der, Pastor of Student Ministries
Matthew 7:24-27 NIV
If you know something, but don’t do it, do you truly know it?

“When we believe but don’t do, our dreams don’t come true.”

Just believing is dangerous.
The sandy foundation is the concept of Jesus that only requires you to just believe.

The solid foundation is the real Jesus that calls you into a relationship that has been exercised and tested and proven.
Just because I used to do something well, doesn’t mean I can still do it today.

If I haven’t had a real life story of God’s presence intersecting with my everyday life, am I really following Jesus?

If we, as a church, aren’t celebrating new believers among us, can we say that we are living out our faith and following Jesus well?

Congregational Prayer for Week Three:

James 2: 14-18

14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith
but has no deeds? Can such faith save them?
15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food.
16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but
does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it?
17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is
18 But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.”
Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my

These verses continue to invite us to go deeper in our faith walk as we confront actions, deeds, visible steps of faith.

1) How do you grasp putting faith in action, as God's ambassadors?

2) How is God moving you to pray for the Elders of Pathways as they discern the pastoral transition?
