Pathway's response to concerns about the coronavirus.

Dear Pathway Family,

What an amazing week we have experienced in our world. These are unprecedented days and we are walking into uncharted territory as nations from almost every continent, our nation, our state, and our local communities are seeking to stay healthy and to curb of the spread of Novel Coronavirus Covid-19. I want you to know that we are praying for the health and safety of our church family each and every day in this unique season. If you didn’t have a chance to experience worship on Sunday I hope you will take time to watch the message as we considered how Gospel People Can Respond to this Global Pandemic.

Watch on Livestream

We are also continuing to prayerfully plan as we heed the advice of leaders in government and health care to make healthy, loving, and wise decisions. Last night leaders from our church family met to discuss the plan for the weeks to come and I wanted to communicate that to you.

Weekly Worship Services will be online only with no physical gathering March 22, March 29, and April 5.

There is a strong possibility this will be extended to Easter Sunday on April 12, but we will make a decision as more information is forthcoming. We will continue to monitor the situation and will communicate regularly on our website and social media platforms. Be looking for a video message from me later this week.

Weekly Small Groups and all Age-Graded Ministries of Preschool, Children, and Youth on Sundays and Wednesdays are cancelled through at least through April 8.

All Weekly Ministries and outside groups that utilize our facilities are cancelled at least through April 8.

Office hours in the church office will be limited

and staffing in the office will be lessened. While there will be ministry and support staff available we would ask that communication by telephone or email be prioritized if at all possible. If any assistance is needed please don’t hesitate make that need known.
Office phone number: 909-793-2448

These decisions were both difficult and easy to make. They were difficult because of our desire to be a people and place that show and share the love of Christ in this time of crisis. It is difficult to close our campus during this time. However, when we understand that closing our campus contributes to the curbing of the Coronavirus Covid 19 and protecting the most vulnerable, the decision was easy. We love our church family and our community and we want to cooperate with all efforts that contribute to the health and well-being of people.

While we can’t meet physically I am so encouraged by your response this week! Our leadership teams are working hard to find ways to keep our mission going forward even in this time when social distancing is in order. We are working with our Executive Leadership Team, Deacons, Small Group Leaders, and so many of our people who have willing hearts to minister in this season. While there are things that we can’t do, we can Love God, Love People, Live Generously, and Look for Opportunities to Make a Difference. Without a doubt, Jesus Christ is greater than this crisis! He will never leave us and I am confident He will lead us through this time to advance His kingdom purposes. Psalm 91:1-2 continue to be a source of strength for me in this season-I pray it will encourage you today as well, "He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and fortress, my God in whom I trust."

I look forward to worship together online this Sunday!

Your Pastor,
Rob Futral
