With Christmas just a couple weeks away, Pathway Church in Johnston is staying involved by helping the community celebrate.
On Dec. 16, Pathway hosted Santa's Workshop, an event in which children from the church had the opportunity to meet Santa and give back at the same time.
The even began at 5 p.m. and ran until 6:30 p.m. In addition to meeting Santa, the children also took part in decorating plain canvas shoes and writing personal notes to children in Zimbabwe. The shoes and notes will be personally delivered to orphaned children in Zimbabwe on the church's upcoming mission trip in June 2019.
