Pioneer Youth Host Fundraiser Dinner on Thursday, September 5th 

Pioneer Family & Friends, 

The Pioneer Youth would like to invite you to their Fundraiser Dinner & Presentation on Thursday, September 5th at 6:00pm in the Fellowship Hall.

Our young people always have a great time leading worship and sharing a bit about their experiences from the summer, but we wanted to do something a bit more this year. We are hosting a Taco Bar Fundraiser Dinner to begin raising funds for the 2020 Montreat Youth Conference and to share more in detail about our experiences from the 2019 Montreat Youth Conference.

Please make plans to join us on Thursday, September 5th.  Please send an RSVP to either Peggy or Aaron so we can have an accurate head count.  You can even RSVP on the registration pads in worship this Sunday morning too. 

We look forward to seeing you all and sharing with you how we will "Let Love Lead" us this year.

 

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.

The Gospel of John

  • Intergenerational class and discussion led by Bob Evans
  • The Gospel of John has been called by some “the greatest book in the world.” It is clear as a crystalline pool but so deep that its bottom will never be seen. It is a book for children and scholars, neither of which will ever get their fill. In one sense, it is direct, simple and easily understood by everyone, but in another, it is so profound that if baffles even the greatest of scholars.
  • Meets in Room #1 – every Sunday
