Church Plant Member’s Song Recognized

December 4, 2006

Pathway Community Church, a Christian Reformed church plant located in Newport, Maine, knew that it had a talented worship team on its hands. But the level of that talent reached new heights when a song written by the team’s leader, Amy Brown, was given honorable mention in the CRC’s recent song contest.

Brown’s song, “Our World Belongs to God,” was one of five picked by the CRC’s 150th anniversary committee to be included in celebration events throughout 2007. The inspiration for her song came from Our World Belongs to God, a contemporary testimony of the Christian Reformed Church.

The Pathway worship team, called ALL OUT, consists of Brown, the leader and main singer, Pete Holman on drums, Ethan Brown on bass guitar, and Tony Brown on keyboards. The team recorded “Our World Belongs to God” and one other original song for a new worship CD.

These two songs can be downloaded for free by clicking on the audio link on the church’s website,

In addition to leading Pathway’s Sunday morning worship services, ALL OUT also leads weekly worship at Nokomis Regional High School in Newport.

Pathway was formed less than one year ago from a partnership between Christian Reformed Home Missions and Classis Atlantic Northeast. Home Missions helps parenting churches and classes start up to 20 new churches annually throughout Canada and the United States. Since 1988, the CRC, with Home Missions’ assistance, has planted close to 300 new churches in North America.
