Sandy Dollars

I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. Philippians 4:12

Honor God With Your Bod

Contributed by:

small groups pastor

This past weekend, Ron continued in our series called Sandyland, and jumped right into the ever popular topic of sex! I'm not sure, but it looked like he started sweating a few times...especially when the Song of Solomon passage was quoted.

Solid Rock or Sinking Sand?

Contributed by:
Becky Johnson
women's life director

On a sunny, warm day in December twenty-six years ago, my husband and I said our wedding vows. We couldn’t wait for the day to arrive and to begin our married life together! Like many young couples, we thought our life would be filled with joy and happiness. And it has! However, it hasn’t been all joy and happiness; we’ve encountered a few of life’s storms along the way! What we’ve come to realize in our twenty-six years is that no one escapes life’s storms. John 6:33 says that “in this life we will have trouble”. Whether married or single, young or old, you most likely understand this and have experienced a few storms as well! So the question becomes, how do we weather them?

Heaven on Earth...REALLY?!

Contributed by:

men's life director

People often make statements about their favorite things being like heaven on earth. Perhaps it’s being the day she said yes to you, or that amazing vacation or a visit to Yankee Stadium (a picture of the “new” heaven!)

Why Would a Loving God Send Someone to Hell

Contributed by:
Tyler Ward
spiritual formation pastor

This past weekend, Pastor Ron continued the Heaven or Hell series by addressing the question, “Why would a loving God send someone to hell?” This is no doubt one of the most challenging questions regarding our beliefs about life after death.

The Heartbreaking Reality of Hell

care ministries director

Conversations, opinions and perspectives vary in our world on what Hell will be like - it’s existence and who will end up there. In the Christian circles these same questions are being asked and opinions and perspectives are being given, thereby creating interest and exploration amongst churches and Christian communities into the topic of Hell. Pathway has been hosting a series on Heaven or Hell over the last few weeks, that will continue over the next few weeks.

I love to write. There is just something in me that gets excited about turning thoughts into words and seeing them come to life on a page. In high school I took every English class offered, but my favorite, by far, was creative writing. In college, after trying my hand at a couple of different majors, I returned to what I knew and loved, English, with the hopes of someday using my degree to write. Lately my writing has been more in the form of e-mail, blogs and homework help, but I am a journalist at heart.
