Together we can make a difference!

For the past several years, Pathways Church has come together with various local churches to throw the city of Appleton a party to help support low-income families. This year, we are partnering with Refuge Church and Breakthrough Covenant Church to focus on the next generation of these families -- the elementary-aged students that are going back to school in September.

Come join the Party in the Park Back to School Jam at Pierce Park  from 10AM-3PM on August 25! We will have fun bounce houses, face painting, food, backpack giveaways, and more. We want to start you off on the right foot as you start your school year.
