Pathways Transitions to Summer Program Beginning June 9th


Every summer, Pathways takes a break from unit curriculum rotations and all the kids come together as one large group for fellowship and learning. This summer is no exception.  Beginning this Sunday, June 9th, we will start our Summer Program.  Every Sunday, we will meet in the Cinema Room of the CLC, take attendance, collect offering, sing the Doxology and say the Lord's Prayer.  We will then begin our lesson for the day.  Our lessons this summer will include exploring the Bible, listening to Bible Stories, and watching Biblical Movies.  Pastor Nick will come in periodically over the summer to spend time with the children and teach his own lessons.  Our Summer Intern, Hannah Overfelt, will visit us and share some of her wonderful Storytelling Talents.  We will also be pairing up the older kids of Pathways with the younger kids quite frequently, to look up various Trivia questions in the Bible.  We hope they will join us!


A special thank you goes out to all of our Pathways Guides and Teachers who committed themselves to our program this past school year.  Pathways would not be the successful program that it is, without you.  We are blessed to have had you with us.

This Sunday, we will be transitioning into our Summer Sunday School Program.  All grades will be merged together and we will meet as one large group. For the next two Sundays, we will be continuing our Dig into the Bible Unit.  In this Unit, the children are learning how to find specific verses in the Bible and are beginning to learn the names of the Books of the Bible.  In addition, they are learning that the Bible was written down by many people over hundreds of years and that it offers us a guide for daily living.  Our outreach project for this unit, will be to purchase Children's Bibles with the offering that we collect in Pathways for the duration of the unit, through June 16th. The Bibles will cost $13.60 each. To date, we have an offering total of $50.52 to purchase Bibles. At the end of the Unit, these Bibles will be presented to the Ronald McDonald House and/or Children's Hospital on behalf of the Pathway's Kids of Broadway Christian Church.



All God's Children


All God's Children is an adapted Sunday School program for children with disabilities.  Children up to age 12 are invited to join us for a modified version of the hands-on Pathways program.  School aged children meet at 11:15 in the music room of the CLC.  Preschoolers meet in the nursery wing at 11:15.  For more information, contact Teresa Wiegand in the church office.
