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,

At our second service, at 7pm we will gather in our cars in the Pioneer parking lot to celebrate "together" while safely social distancing. We'll light candles (or flashlights or glowsticks or whatever you bring along) as we hear the Christmas story and sing. The link for the bulletin is below.
The weather report for the evening looks uncertain. There will likely be snow and possibly high winds, though it could start later in the evening, and may pass north of Solon. We are moving forward with the 7:00 parking lot service, but we encourage our church family to stay home if you see that the roads are unsafe. We hope you are all filled with peace and joy at the miracle of God’s coming among us in Jesus Christ, and we hope you all have a safe and happy Christmas.

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.
