Let’s have some fun!

Let’s imagine your life without a mortgage payment (or a monthly rent payment). Would that radically improve your finances? Wouldn’t that open up a world of possibilities for how you could otherwise spend that money? Of course! All of us understand the freedom and options that would become available without mortgage debt.

We as a church are no different. In 2023 our total mortgage balance was approximately $1.1 million. Our monthly mortgage payment is just over $7,000 per month. And we have no regrets! This investment by our church has given us the beautiful building and grounds that we enjoy today. But imagine the possibilities when the debt is gone. What could we do with an additional $7,000 per month?! This freedom would allow us to fully pursue God’s will for our church. Money would not be the barrier from us being obedient to what God would have us do.

This is what Pathway to Possibilities is all about! It’s a two-year capital campaign (ending in the fall of 2025) to completely eliminate our mortgage debt. It is a very ambitious goal. But our hope is in God! We think big and expect great things from our generous God. To reach this goal we needed our Pathway people to respond with sacrifice and generosity. And they did. Our total pledges are $922,190.44 plus a one-time gift of $220,000.

It’s not too late for you to prayerfully consider how God might have you participate – above and beyond your regular giving.

In the Give tab of our website, choose Give Online then use the dropdown to choose Pathway to Possibilities. You will have the option to give once or make a recurring gift. If you give by check, write Pathway to Possibilities in the memo line.

Pathway Church is growing and moving and seeing lives changed through the power of Jesus Christ. I hope you will join us to work toward a future full of possibilities!

Our focus is on this dynamic truth:

Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.
Ephesians 3:20

We love Pathway Church! We see people all around us experiencing new life in Jesus Christ through the ministry of Pathway, and it is our honor to serve as co-chairs of this campaign. We want our church released from our mortgage debt so that we will be poised to respond to any possibilities God brings our way. We are personally pledged to give generously and sacrificially toward this goal, and we hope you will do the same.

Believing He Will Provide,
Becky Kinnee and Patrick Dawson
