Future Story #2 – 2014 (Social Service Model)
(Jan 26, 09 version)
Pathway Community Church worships with 500 people in a newly renovated campus with a new fellowship hall which serves as a focal point for the congregation and complements community outreach. Weekly worship services are held at the Thornton Avenue Campus as well as other sites within the Tri-City area. These off-site locations create space where the church and the community can cross paths.
Pathway is known for its social outreach and community service. It provides opportunities for people who are interested in active caring for the community and the world. They have 35- 40 various groups meeting to impact people’s social and spiritual conditions. These teams meet regularly for spiritual growth and to nurture personal relationships. Some examples of our ministries are: – Free tutoring to local students and a safe after-school study area staffed with trained volunteers
– Employment information materials and employment counselors to assist with job-searches
– Multi-cultural Welcome wagon allows for first contact to newcomers to our neighborhood.
The church continues to partner with local Tri-City social service agencies and recruits outside the congregation to fill service positions. The campus is also used to provide other activities such as exercise classes. Recognizing our place in the global community, PCC operates in an environmentally responsible manner. We attract a diverse membership that represents the Fremont demographic.
