Frequently Asked Questions

We love having people visit Pathway. We hope we can help you on your journey of faith.

Where do I park?

The church's parking lot may be entered from either Lakeview Ave. (east side) or Leco Ct. (west side). The drop off area and handicapped parking are closest to the Leco Ct. entrance and flagpoles. There are reserved parking spots for handicapped and veterans. Overflow parking is available in the adjacent lot or alongside the streets.

What entrance do I use?

The sanctuary is easily accessed by using the double entry doors on either side of the memorial bell garden (Entrance 1 & 2). Greeters will be happy to meet you and answer any questions. You can also use the Wayfinder boards just inside entrances 1, 2, and 3.

What should I expect during a service?

We offer two different types of services each Sunday - our Traditional Service at 9:00am and our Modern Service at 11:00am. To learn about our Sunday morning services, click here for more information about each type of service. Bibles and hymnals are provided in the pews or you may follow along on the screens for the Scripture reading and all of the song lyrics.

At each service, people are asked to fill out a Connection Card to help us get to know you. Please let us know you are visiting!

What's the music like?

We are a church definitely known for music! Our traditional service offers hymn singing along with a variety of special music including classical, contemporary, vocal, instrumental, and orchestral. It also features our Chancel Choir and beautiful pipe organ. We have a bell choir that performs regularly. Our modern service is led by a vocalist and worship band and features contemporary music that you hear on Christian radio today. Find out more about our music programs.

What do I wear?

We want you to feel at ease worshiping with us. Wear what makes you feel comfortable. In general, people attending the traditional service at 9:00 dress business casual -anything from dresses and dress slacks with a shirt and tie to khakis and polos. Most people in the modern service dress casually - anything from khakis and polos to jeans, shorts, t-shirts, and flip-flops.

What if I need coffee?

We have GREAT coffee!!  Just come to our Hospitality Desk in the lobby before and between services to get a cup of coffee. If you would like a bite to eat, stop by Fellowship Hall for a sampling of tasty treats. As our guest, always feel free to help yourself to complimentary refreshments.

What about younger children?

Child care for infants through preschool age is provided all morning in the Nursery, staffed by a professional attendant.  Young ones are welcome to sit with their parents in the sanctuary during the services if preferred.  We also have couches and comfy chairs in the lobby at the back of the sanctuary, which is another option for seating.

  • During the 9:00 service, children preschool and under are in the Nursery (Room 101 - Entrance 1) where they will hear Bible stories and get a chance to know and play with other young children.

  • During the 11:00 service, children preschool and under are in the Nursery (Room 101 -  Entrance 1).  Children in Kindergarten through 5th grade sit in the sanctuary for part of the service and then are dismissed to Kids' Church in the Youth Center Room 305.

How do I get involved?

There are many ways to get involved. Here are four of them:

1) Come to a worship service on Sunday.
2) Look into joining a small group, and get to know some great people.
3) Come to one of our special events, and enjoy fellowship with the church family.
4) Find an opportunity to serve through our missions programs - here, near, or far.
