Representing Jesus

Last week I did something I haven’t done ever and that is reach out to my community.  Which is crazy considering I adore Appleton and the Fox Valley.  But at Pathways, you all provided a venue for anyone to get connected.  All you asked was for 2 hours or so of my time for each event which is the perfect amount for someone who isn’t sure that he actually wants to do something like this.  And I LOVED it.  I would not have had that opportunity or even be open to it if it wasn’t for how we do Church.

I go through my week and for the first time ever I am anxious for Sunday morning Church.  I can’t wait to be there and it hurts when I leave.  I did not expect this to happen when my family and I decided to leave our old Church family to come to Pathways.  I am just blown away.

Another first for me is inviting people to my church.  I actually have invited people to church because I love it there and truly believe that what they are looking for – JESUS – will be presented in a way that I agree with and truly appreciate.

I just wanted to let you know that for the first time in a LONG time I am feeling my life get changed again and I am actually growing closer to God thanks to the love and teaching I receive at Pathways.
