Pioneer supports PAWS on Child Hunger

Pioneer recently received a Twitter shout out from the Superintendent of Twinsburg Schools for our support of PAWS on Child Hunger.  Way to go Pioneer!

Help the House!  Collect those Aluminum Pull Tabs!

Pioneer's newest mission is now underway!  Cleveland's Ronald McDonald House can use everyday items that many of us already have!  The House serves families whose children are undegoing medical treatment at local hospitals by providing lodging and food at minimal rates during their Cleveland stay.  No family is ever turned away due to ability to pay.  They rely on volunteers and donations to offer this outreach.  Here is how we can help:

  1. Save your aluminum pull tabs from beverage cans, pet containers, and food cans.  Place them in the container in the narthex.
  2. The House also needs hotel and trial/travel sized toiletry items like soap, shampoo, lotion and toothpaste.  Place these items in the hospitality basket in the narthex.

If you have any questions, please contact June Bolenbaugh.

Living Waters for the World - Mission Trips to Honduras

Pioneer is planning another trip to Honduras this fall.  They will be installing a water filtration system in the town of El Dorao.  Our team has now successfully installed three water filtration systems in the villages of La Arada, 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!  If you're interested in joining the mission team, please see Brad Mold or Greg Reynolds for information.

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!

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 (9:15 am Sunday mornings during the school year); and Wednesday Night Live! (Selected 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 each month? 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.
