Flipping the Iceberg - In My Disasters (Week 2)

Pathfinder Church | February 28, 2021 | Doug Mauss The Grace of Redemption God’s grace is the beginning of everything and will have the final word. Not only will all of our mistakes be forgiven, not only will our pain be erased, but God promises that he will redeem everything that is fallen, broken, defiled and ugly, and he will make it new. There are few things in life more powerful than knowing that in the middle of your ugliest most broken moments, God will turn your lumps of coal into...


Lent Midweek | Jesus takes up his cross

Pathfinder Church | February 24, 2021 | Annalyse Erbst & Dion Garrett "Then the governor’s soldiers took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole company of soldiers around him. They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, and then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on his head. They put a staff in his right hand. Then they knelt in front of him and mocked him. “Hail, king of the Jews!” they said. They spit on him, and took the staff and struck him on the head again...


Flipping the Iceberg - In My Failures - Forgiveness (Week 1)

Pathfinder Church | February 21, 2021 | Dion Garrett The Grace of Forgiveness When you’ve really hurt someone, sinned against them, you realize how powerless you are. Because in those moments, you know there is absolutely nothing you can do to make things right again. In those moments, the only source of hope is that the other person would be kind enough to absolve you anyway, in spite of you. This is where our experience with grace begins. Jesus shows us that God doesn’t treat us as our...

The Way - The Relational Way (Week 7)

Pathfinder Church | February 14, 2021 | Dion Garrett Love. Is there anything in life more heavily sought and more grossly misunderstood? Love plays a central role in a Christian’s life, there’s nothing more defining, but in a world that has put forth a romantic cliché as the picture of true love, we end up misled and dissatisfied in our relationships.

The Way - The Physical Way (Week 6)

Pathfinder Church | February 7, 2021 | Dion Garrett This weekend millions tune in to watch some of the most finely tuned physical specimens on the planet battle it out for our entertainment. Ironically, we’ll watch them while bingeing on decadent spreads of food that will probably leave us with stomach aches. In both the highly trained athlete and the average American couch potato, a common misunderstanding is at play—our bodies are just our bodies. Website |...


The Way - The Vocational Way (Week 5)

Pathfinder Church | January 31, 2021 | Dion Garrett In our day, vocations and callings have been traded for careers and paychecks. The shift is more than semantics too. As Pastor Rick Warren’s bestselling book showed us 20 years ago, we are desperate to figure out our purpose. Without a clear calling, life is nothing more than a joyless trudge through a series of eight to fives. Website |​ Online Giving |​ Facebook |...


The Way - The Mental Way (Week 4)

Pathfinder Church | January 24, 2021 | Doug Mauss The power of our thoughts, either to bring joy and peace to our beings or sadness and sickness, is astounding. With mental health finally getting our attention, what advantage does our faith offer us in cultivating wholeness in the mind?

The Way - The Financial Way (Week 3)

Pathfinder Church | January 17, 2021 | Dion Garrett For something that’s so temporal, money sure does have a big impact on every part of our lives. Just notice how quickly everything changes when you open your credit card statements this month. But in spite of how overpowering money can be, it’s often the last place we invite God into.

The Way - The Spiritual Way (Week 2)

Pathfinder Church | January 10, 2021 | Doug Mauss What does it mean to be spiritual? Is it nebulous and fluid, defined differently by each person? And if not, who gets to decide? Jesus came to challenge the prevailing definitions of spirituality in his way and to redefine what spirituality looks like. His definition was surprising to many in his day and still for us today! Website | Online Giving | Facebook |...


The Way - Followers of the Way (Week 1)

Pathfinder Church | January 03, 2021 | Dion Garrett The great misunderstanding of Christianity is that it’s not actually a set of beliefs, doctrines, or truths—not alone. According to Jesus, it’s a whole lifestyle, a way of living that leads us to a better, fuller life. How many of us are settling for crumbs of life by letting Jesus’s full offer go on misunderstood and unclaimed? A whole, integrated life is still what Jesus wants to give us, if we’re willing to open ourselves up to the...


Unbreakable Promises - To Dwell with Us (Week 5)

Pathfinder Church | December 27, 2020 | Doug Mauss When Christmas goes, the warmth and hope of the season often goes with it. But, God’s Messiah doesn’t go back in the box when Christmas ends, which means his influence remains with us. God has fulfilled his promise to be with us forever, which is the most hopeful promise our world can know. Website | Online Giving | Facebook | Instagram |...


Unbreakable Promises - To Fix What’s Broken (Week 4)

Pathfinder Church | December 20, 2020 | Dion Garrett When we look back over the course of our lives, or look around at our world, there’s so much that has been lost or torn down. While that may bring us discouragement, regret, and despair, God promised us a Messiah who would be skilled at putting broken things back together. Website | Online Giving | Facebook | Instagram |...


Unbreakable Promises - To Purify and to Cleanse (Week 3)

Pathfinder Church | December 13, 2020 | Doug Mauss Fire, we’re taught from the time we’re little, is dangerous, and most little ones learn to be wary of a soapy bath. This makes God promise that the Messiah will come with refining fire and launderer’s soap, sound very odd. And yet these are some of the most hopeful promises an imperfect person can hear. Website | Online Giving | Facebook |...


Unbreakable Promises - To Rule Forever (Week 2)

Pathfinder Church | December 6, 2020 | Dion Garrett In our day, we’ve grown to distrust autocrats (and rightfully so) but regular, democratically mandated political change brings its own kind of distress. Since ancient times God promised that he, himself would be our king forever, which is our only hope for stability in a world of change. Website | Online Giving | Facebook | Instagram |...


Unbreakable Promises - To Enlighten the World (Week 1)

Pathfinder Church | November 29, 2020 | Jon Shepherd Darkness can be terrifying—and for different reasons. It can represent evil, the unknown, sin, and ignorance. So God’s promise to bring light is a multi-faceted promise of hope we need while living in dark times. Website | Online Giving | Facebook | Instagram | St. John School | Contact Us...

Escaping the Bermuda Triangle - The Undercurrent of Fear (Week 3)

Pathfinder Church | November 15, 2020 | Dion Garrett Fear can stimulate the body to action and the mind to attention; it readies us for dangers, challenges, and threats. But a life of fear does the opposite, it crowds the mind and leaves us fatigued and depleted. How do we know we’re captive to fear and how do we get unstuck from it? Website | Online Giving | Facebook | Instagram |...


Escaping the Bermuda Triangle - The Vortex of Anger (Week 2)

Pathfinder Church | November 8, 2020 | Dion Garrett Anger can be a helpful emotion in the face of injustice or wrongdoing. And since there is plenty of injustice and wrongdoing in our world, we all experience anger! But some of us choose to live in anger as our go-to response to anything and everything. Our world is brimming with anger right now (and has been for a while) because we don’t understand what else to do with it or what our anger is really hiding. Website |...


Escaping the Bermuda Triangle - The Trap of Shame (Week 1)

Pathfinder Church | November 1, 2020 | Doug Mauss From time to time we all feel out of place and unwanted, like we are deficient or something is missing. So we achieve, give, or change ourselves to fit in. Some of us never leave this treadmill (called shame) and we experience the deep, corrosive, exhausting effects of it. While momentary shame can be helpful in signaling that something is threatening our wholeness, how do we get free from the trap of a life of shame? Website |...
