Why we give

 “We love each other because he loved us first.” 1 John 4:19, NLT

Because we have been recipients of God’s great generosity, we choose to give generously to others. This is an expression of our love for and gratitude to God, and it is our opportunity to joyfully reflect his love to the world. As we near the end of a very difficult year, people all around us need to encounter a loving, joyful, and generous God. This year, we are focusing our gifts on the community—the people and neighbors near us who are hurting or are in need. Here is where our gifts will make a difference this year:

Where our Giving Goes

“And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God.” Hebrews 13:16, NLT

* HERE: The Pathway Food Pantry and Garden

Since its inception, the Pathway Food Pantry has served thousands of families—hundreds during this season of COVID. In 2020, the Pathway Garden harvested 3200 pounds of fresh produce to feed neighbors in need. Both the pantry and the garden supply food to Senior Pak, Redemption House, Harvester Missionary Church, The Rescue Mission, Shepherd’s House, and Light House, in addition to individuals and families.

But the Pathway Food Pantry has yet to find a permanent home. It was housed in a storage unit, then two storage units, then KidCity classrooms, and most recently, in one of our Connection Rooms. In 2021, we plan to build a permanent food pantry—an addition onto our existing barn that would increase our current food pantry from 200 square feet to 1300 square feet, including refrigerators, freezers, and a garden expansion. Our goal is to raise $125,000 for this project so that we can build a facility that empowers us to meet more needs in our community.

* NEAR: benevolent ministries in our community

Below are three examples of the local ministries with whom we hope to partner financially this year. Our goal is to raise and additional $75,000 to bless those ministries we partner with who are caring for those in need.

BounceBack provides financial assistance and coaching to people who are facing an unexpected crisis so they can “bounce back” to self-sufficiency. When a local church financially partners with BounceBack, that church can refer congregants to them for assistance and relief. Read more at bouncebackofindiana.com.

The Rescue Mission is a faith-based, non-profit organization that provides restorative care to men, women, and children who are facing a homeless crisis. Their mission is to provide, through the power of Jesus, a home for the homeless, food for the hungry, and hope for their future. Read more at fwrm.org.

Redemption House is a network of transition homes for women who desire to redeem their lives from past destructive behavior by developing a faith-based lifestyle and by gaining the skills necessary to achieve and maintain success. Read more at redemptionhousefw.org.

About Online Giving

Pathway began using a new online giving platform in November of 2019. The first time you give via the website or app (not by text), the system will use your name and email address to match your gift to your existing profile, if you have one. If you choose to save your account information, you will  be asked to create a password.

If this is your first time logging in to the new system via the website, please click “Forgot Password” to set up new login information, as your old MyPathway login information will not be recognized by the new system.

To give or to access your giving records, simply text GIVE to 1.833.568.5410 or CLICK HERE.
