Pathways Baptist Church
Sermon Series: "Famous Last Words"
Welcome to Pathways. We hope you will feel the presence of God's Spirit throughout today's worship service. Pastor Jonathan Der will bring today's message in our sermon series, "Famous Last Words." The sermons will focus on the memorable words spoken by remarkable people from the 19th and 20th centuries, as well as people in the Bible. Today's famous person is Abraham, looking at God's promises and Abraham's faith in Genesis 22. This is the story of Abraham preparing to sacrifice Isaac. "God will provide" is the promise. Key ideas will include the ideas of making our needs known to God, God providing according to His plan, our trust in His provision. Feel free to take notes using the YouVersion app. Fill out a Connection Card (link provided below) and let us know how we can serve you better.

Happy Chinese New Year! Lunar New Year, also referred to as Chinese New Year, will usher in the Year of the Rabbit for 2023. Starting today, a 15-day festival is celebrated annually based on the sighting of the new moon. One of the biggest celebrations in Asia and the Asian diaspora, the holiday heralds fresh starts and the renewal of prosperity, happiness, and health. In Chinese culture, the rabbit is considered the luckiest of the 12 zodiac animals, representing peace and longevity. Chinese people believe that what you do at the start of a new year affects your luck for the rest of the year.

Wednesday Dinners for Students

The students of Pathways, their friends, and visitors from area church student groups all meet Wednesday evenings at Pathways to fellowship, study God's word, and grow deeper in their relationship with Christ and their faith. They are asking hard questions about Jesus and Christianity. We want to encourage this time by feeding them dinner each Wednesday. Use the link below to get details for the dinners and to sign-up. The students and the VTeam appreciate your generous hospitality.

Small Groups at Pathways

Scripture Reading
Luke 11:5-9

5 Then Jesus said to them, “Suppose you have a friend, and you go to him at midnight and say, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread;
6 a friend of mine on a journey has come to me, and I have no food to offer him.’
7 And suppose the one inside answers, ‘Don’t bother me. The door is already locked, and my children and I are in bed. I can’t get up and give you anything.’
8 I tell you, even though he will not get up and give you the bread because of friendship, yet because of your shameless audacity[a] he will surely get up and give you as much as you need.
9 “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
