Our History:

Pathway’s first service was held in the Harlan Park Shelter House on April 25th, 2010 with Pastor Ralph Klinker, a Methodist pastor from Monroeville, Indiana.

We asked Pastor Murray Clugston of Fort Wayne, Indiana, a Baptist pastor, to do the service for us for the month of October 2010. At the end of October, we asked him to continue as our pastor and he accepted.

We moved from the shelter house to the Hockemeyer Funeral Home in Harlan on October 23rd, 2011 and held services there until we moved into our own church building here in Harlan on August 10th, 2014.
