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,

Join Pioneer and the community as we make plans to send the employees of Solon’s Police Department and Firefighters & Paramedics a special “Thank You Valentine!”
We would like to express our appreciation for all they do on a daily basis, and especially for their service during the many challenges of the Covid-19 Pandemic. There are a total of 133 employees! That’s LOTS of cards!
Here’s how you can be a part of Pioneer’s February LOVE project which also supports LOCAL BUSINESSES:
Make or buy 2 (or more) Valentine Cards and sign them with a sincere note, thanking these special people for their service. Enclose in EACH Valentine card (1) $10 giftcard that you have purchased from a local business. (a few examples: Dunkin Donuts, Subway, BP, Mobil, Giant Eagle, Marcs, Starbucks…or consider a newly opened local business). Seal the envelopes and simply put the words “THANK YOU!” on the outside.
Bring your sealed Valentines to Pioneer to drop-off on either Sunday, February 7, before and after the Annual Congregational Meeting or Saturday, February 20, between the hours of 10 am. - 4 pm. Volunteers will be waiting to collect your cards and put them in our large, festively decorated Valentine Box! If you cannot get to Pioneer for either drop off time, please notify Kim Davis or Deb Davenport to arrange a pick-up or alternate drop-off time. Once collected, the cards, will be taken to Solon’s Mayor’s office to be distributed to each first responder employee.
Let’s show the Heart of Pioneer in action and spread God’s love with simple acts of kindness!
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.
