Pathways Institute for Lifelong Learning


Recognizing that older adults have much to celebrate, discover, and share, Pathways Institute for Lifelong Learning was established by Messiah Lifeways to find meaningful use of their talents and abilities. Pathways Institute provides older adults with opportunities to engage in mental, cultural and spiritual activities promoting their overall wellness.

  • Share their own legacies, knowledge, and expertise by teaching, mentoring, and leading discussions with peers
  • Engage in wellness education programs
  • Enhance spiritual growth and well-being
  • Engage in service to others in the community
