Orphan Weekend

December 1 - December 2

God's Heart for the Orphan, Our heartbeat for Adoption

All Weekend Worship Gatherings

If you’ve been around Pathway a while, you know we have a heart for orphan care and adoption. We annually celebrate lives touched by adoption, and promote ways YOU can play a part in Christ’s mandate to care for the orphan. You won’t want to miss our very special services December 1+2, featuring guest speaker Jason Johnson, and including many events for adoptive and foster families and those interested in learning more about adoption or foster care.

ADDITIONAL ORPHAN WEEKEND OPPORTUNITIES:

PARENTING KIDS FROM HARD PLACES: A PRACTICAL GUIDE

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 1 | 5-6PM | Venue

Have you ever wondered why your children do what they do? Whether you have adopted or are thinking of adopting, this session will help you understand some of the puzzling behaviors children from hard places may present. We will look at the outward behaviors and explore their inner meaning, both from an emotional standpoint and a sensory standpoint.

This session will help parents find the pieces of the puzzle that can help their child grow and connect into the family. Puzzles can be overwhelming, but when we can gather all the pieces the picture can be beautiful.

DINNER FOR ADOPTIVE, FOSTER, & SAFE FAMILIES

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 1 | 6:30PM | THE VENUE

If you are a family who has adopted or is in the adoption process, if you’re a foster family or a part of Safe Families, we invite you to a very special post-service dinner Saturday evening at 6:30pm. RSVP below by November 28 to be a part of this celebration event!
