Wednesday, August 16 @ 8:00 am - Sunday, August 20 @ 3:00 pm
Due to very low registration Pathways has been forced to cancel the Pathways Village Program that had been scheduled for August 16-20. Pathways will continue to look for other kinds of opportunities to offer programming for adults and families. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Families of all descriptions, folks of all ages have the opportunity to choose which days work best for them during the five days offered for a time away for fun and relaxation while exploring and sharing faith together.
Village Theme for 2017: Wet, Wild and Reforming Wet: The Lake; The Emmaus summer theme of The Water of Life centered in water images in scripture.
Wild: The Natural Setting, opportunities coordinated each day by Pr Frank Johnson to Hike (including orienteering challenges), Pedal or Paddle ; wilderness times in life and faith journeys.
Reforming: We are living into the 500th anniversary of the
Reformation to be a reforming church; anchored in the gospel, we are listening to God’s call to shape the church and our lives of faith anew in the 21st century.
