Authentic transformation happens when we choose to do life together.

Pathways Church exists to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus. Groups at Pathways are safe, highly-relational environments designed to explore the Scriptures, ask questions, and be encouraged to follow Jesus on your journey.

We believe that people grow best when they are connected through relationships with others. Whether it's through deeper discussion of the weekend message, common interest, or serving together, groups at Pathways Church offer the opportunity to connect with others and grow closer to Jesus.

Day/Time: Tuesday 6:30-8PM (9 weeks)

Having clear boundaries is essential to a healthy, balanced lifestyle, isn’t it? Often, Christians focus so much on being loving and unselfish that they forget their own limits and limitations. When confronted with their lack of boundaries they ask questions like "Can I set limits and still be a loving person?", "What are legitimate boundaries?", "What if someone is upset or hurt by my boundaries?", "How do I answer someone who wants my time, love, energy, or money?", "Aren’t boundaries selfish?", and "Why do I feel guilty or afraid when I consider setting boundaries?" This nine-week class will help you learn when to say yes, when to say no, and how to take control of your life.
