Demonstrating God's heart for lost people.
At Pathways, we are committed to serving the Fox Valley by showing the love of Jesus and meeting practical needs in multiple ways. Throughout the year, thousands of people come together at events such as the Easter Egg Hunt and Party in the Park. Many of our small groups and teams volunteer to serve the homeless in our local emergency shelters on a monthly basis, and we also partner with local food and clothing pantries.
Shelter Care Ministry
Volunteers from Pathways serve at the Homeless Connection the first Wednesday of the month in February, April, June, August, October and December from 4:30-7:30PM. We serve at the Fox Valley Warming Shelter the first Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of each month from 5-8PM. Pathways Church provides the main course of the meal. We ask volunteers to bring a dish to pass that will feed between 30-40 people which will compliment the main course. For example, a salad, vegetable dish, bread or dessert.
Senior Care Ministry
The Senior Care Ministry's main purpose is to provide love and compassion. Some activities are card games, manicures, crafts, writing letters, and one-to-one visiting. The best part is that it just takes a loving heart and time, and it fits almost any schedule! People say they get more joy from this ministry than they give.
