Blessing of the Backpacks
Mission Trip to Mobile Health Fair for Migrant Workers
A team of nine from Pioneer recently traveled to Western Ohio to help with a Mobile Health Fair for Migrant Workers. The group helped with free health screenings and education as well as delivered a pickup truck full of clothing donated by our Pioneer Family. Thank you to all who traveled to spread God's love to our neighbors across the state!
Pioneer supports PAWS on Child Hunger
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:
- Save your aluminum pull tabs from beverage cans, pet containers, and food cans. Place them in the container in the narthex.
- 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.

Or did you know that we have Small Group Ministries for men, women, couples, and people of all ages?
