Living Waters for the World - Mission Trip to La Arada, Honduras

The trip to La Arada, Honduras was a great success.  Our team traveled to Honduras and installed a water filtration system in the village of La Arada.  They also visited our previous installations at Lempa and Arenales.  Lempa has already processed over 35,000 gallons of water and has helped two other towns through the site selection process.  They also provided free water to the churches, schools, and teams at soccer games for a 32 team league!  Thank you for your prayers and support!  Even though it's a small team that travels to Honduras, we all play an important part to make this mission project happen!

Pioneer Day of Mission 2014

Thank you to all who participated in our 7th annual Day of Mission.  Special thanks to the folks at Valley Presbyterian who partnered with us for this wonderful day of service!

Opportunities to Serve at Pioneer

The Worship, Music and Arts Ministry Team is looking for people to serve as greeters, ushers, liturgists, and to help with the children's sermon.  We're also looking for people to host Coffee Fellowship after worship on Sunday.  Sign up on the sheets in the Narthex to help out!

Paws on Hunger

Have you heard about Paws on Hunger?  This new program in the Twinsburg Schools provides a bag of child-friendly, nutritious food items each Friday to Wilcox Primary school children who participate in the free or reduced lunch program.  This helps to ensure that they have healthy food to enjoy over the weekend.  This program is a true partnership between the Twinsburg Schools and the Emergency Asistance Center!  Pioneer will be sponsoring the cost of this program for the month of February.  For more information, check out this recent article in the Twinsburg Tribune.

Connect!

Pioneer seeks to offer a variety of "Entry Points" for people to connect with one another and with their growing faith.  Some of these entry points are obvious: Worship (9:30 am Sunday mornings during the summer); Pathways - our Sunday morning education program (9:00 am Sunday mornings during the school year); and Wednesday Night Live! (Wednesdays at 6:00pm).

But did you know that there are several Bible Study groups for men and women?  Or a Prayer Group that gathers every Tuesday evening? Or did you know that we have Small Group Ministries for men, women, couples, and people of all ages?  EVERYONE IS WELCOME at Pioneer, and though it's not always easy to take the first step we hope you will.  Join with us as we seek to connect with one another and with our living faith.

Stephen Ministry

We are a Stephen Ministry congregation.  Specially trained lay members of the congregation are equipped to provide confidential, one-to-one Christian care to individuals in our congregation and community who are experiencing challenges in their lives.  Click here for more information.
