Best. Welcome. Video. Ever.

[youtube=] We know we have a great pastor simply because of this welcome video.  Watch the video… if you hate it, you’ll know everything you need to know.  Otherwise… welcome home!  We’ll see you on Sunday!  (and yes, he really is this authentic in real life…)

Fall 2014 Message Series

In September/October 2014, we’re going to spend some time in one of the most popular, yet most mysterious, letters the Apostle Paul ever wrote… Ephesians.  Known as “The Epistle To The Ephesians,” this book of the New Testament is referred to as the “Queen” of the Apostle Paul’s writings.  It’s popularity is due in part […]

Happy (Spartan) Father’s Day!

Spartan Men Ministry

Pathmaker Men!  We lead, we fight, we transform, and we finish.  But we don’t give up.  We run the race.  We fight the good fight.  We stumble, we fall, we fail, but we don’t stay down.  We get back up, we forgive, we heal, we become better, and we let Him finish the good work […]

Growing Roots

“Sugar and spice and everything nice… that’s what little girls are made of…” goes an old folk poem from the 19th century. Whatever. WOMEN(!) are made of ideas and thoughts, challenges and troubles, hopes and regrets, drama and joy, victories and dreams, complex emotions and simple desires (and vice versa)… most of all, we’re made in […]

The Original Blockbuster :: Sundays, All Summer Long

original blockbuster bible stories sermon

You know what they say about movies, right? “The movie was okay, but the book was way better…” You’ve said it, too, when your favorite book was turned into a movie.  The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Chronicles of Narnia, The Hunger Games, The Hobbit, and the films from Jane Austin, Tom Clancy, or […]

Easter :: the story like you’ve never heard before…

The Bible isn’t the only place you can find out about what Jesus did, how He died, and the almost-over-night-explosion of people claiming to have seen Jesus resurrected from the dead.  It’s true!   A handful of contemporary sources cite both the Man and the Movement that worshiped him as God and spread the Good […]

We’ll drink a cup of kindness here, for Auld Lang Syne…

“The faithful love of the Lord never ends!  His mercies never cease.  Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.” This is a verse from a short, beautiful, and misunderstood song written by the prophet Jeremiah.  Jeremiah is called “the weeping prophet” as the later portion of his ministry occurred after the last good […]

Nicaragua Vision Trip :: Day Three

Sorry, another short update because it is already past midnight and we have an early start with a long last day ahead of us.  Today, we were able to visit a special place to the mission known as Finca Belem, which translates into English as “Bethlehem Farm.”  There is a neat story with respect to […]

No Worship Service Labor Day Sunday (and why that’s a good thing!)

reset sunday

If you’re a regular at Pathmakers, you probably already know about “Reset Sundays” and how it all works. If you’re new to Pathmakers, you probably have NO IDEA what we’re talking about. Allow me to explain… About three times a year, we have what we call “Reset Sundays.” On Reset Sundays, we cancel our main […]

When God Calls You… – The Story of Jonah

…coming September 2013 to Pathmakers… The story of Jonah, found in the Hebrew Old Testament, is among the most debated passages of Scripture in the entire Bible.  Some scholars argue it is purely allegorical, maybe a didactic fable or nursery rhyme for children, or, at best, an embellished narrative about a prophet who lived in […]
