A Welcoming Faith Community for Cleveland's Chagrin Valley
Welcome to Pioneer
We hope you'll get a sense of who we are through this website, but hope even more that we'll have the chance to meet you in person. Pioneer is vibrant and caring congregation where everyone is welcome. Together, we seek to be people of faith who love God and love our neighbors.
Join us this Sunday. You are ALWAYS welcome!
Please join us for worship streaming on our Facebook page Sunday at 10am
Due to the increased spread of the coronavirus, we have chosen to hold our services virtually. The worship leaders will gather safely to record our services and we will stream them each Sunday morning at 10am.
While this is certainly disappointing, it is not unexpected. As schools and activities have increased, so has the spread of this malicious disease. Though it is worthwhile to meet in person, it is not worth risking exposure of this disease to our membership in an undue manner. We have worshiped well online, better than I ever dreamed possible. And we will continue to work diligently to produce meaningful worship no matter the circumstances.
Grace and Peace in Our Lord Jesus Christ,
Looking for a place to give your monthly pledge or freewill offering? Pioneer has partnered with Realm, so we can accept online donations to continue our ministries and missions during this uncertain time. Please click the button below to be sent to our secure donation link.
Holy Week is a particularly poignant time in our faith, where we remember the events that led to Jesus' arrest, crucifixion, and resurrection. We hope you will join us as we worship together during this time. All services will be streamed via FaceBook at the times noted, and available afterward for on demand viewing on FaceBook and YouTube.

A Brick Fundraiser for our Preschool
We would like to introduce the launch of this year’s fundraiser (see the link below) for Pioneer Preschool. This is something all of our congregation can participate in, and we hope you’ll be
a part of this “Celebration Wall!” The brick wall (which will be located on the diagonal wall where our member picture wall was) is a unique and lasting way to honor our Preschool and those
whose services and gifts have largely contributed to and shaped the growth and values of our Preschool. This is a great gift idea, too.
You may submit your choice for a brick tile through the link below by selecting the size brick tile you would like along with the text (and clipart) to be printed on your brick tile. Or you may print and complete the order form from the website and mail or take it to the Church. The cost of a brick tile ranges from $100 to $250. Payment may be made either:
By making payment online. Please enter the amount of payment under “Amount;” then under “Fund,” select “Preschool Program;” and under “Memo,” select “Brick Fundraiser.”
By mailing or bringing payment to the Church. Skip the “Make Payment” option online. Please make your check payable to Pioneer Preschool and mark “Preschool Fundraiser” on the outside of your envelope.
Here’s the link: https://www.brickmarkers.com/donors/pioneer
We look forward to creating our brick wall together! This will be an ongoing fundraiser. Brick orders will be placed in batches on a quarterly basis with the first order being in mid- to late-May. Thank you for your support.
Pioneer's Mother's Day Baby Shower
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 (10:30 am Sunday mornings); Faith Formation- our Sunday morning education program (9:15 am Sunday mornings during the school year); and Wednesday Night Live! (Selected Wednesdays at 5:30pm).
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.
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.
