News & Announcements

Trunk or Treat

Sunday, Oct 29th, 4pm

The Trunk or Treat will be held in the parking lot, weather permitting.  Start thinking about how you might decorate your trunk.  Children are invited to wear costumes and walk from trunk to trunk to collect treats.  If you have any questions, please contact the church office.

Wednesday Night Live! 

Have you heard that WNL has had an exciting update? We still meet on Wednesdays at 6pm but most weeks will include a catered meal. (On the first Weds of the month, the meal will be potluck.)  That's right, one night per week, you can cross dinner off your to-do list.

In addition to dinner, childcare is also taken care of. A nursery will be provided and there will be activities for children.

Adults and teens are welcome to choose between two different study and discussion options led by Pastor Ben Graves and Aaron Ferry.  Pastor Ben will be leading a Bible study on Hebrews and Aaron will be leading a study called Reel Life, Real Faith.  These lessons do not require you to be present each week, please feel free to attend as often as you are available.

Give WNL a try... you will be glad you did!

New to the Pioneer Stephen Ministry Library

In addition to doing a book study on Cancer-Now What?, the Stephen Ministers are adding this book to the existing Stephen Ministry Library. Please feel free to ask Stephen Minister Leaders Caroline McClendon or Betty Evans for more details.

Cancer—Now What? is a book to give to those with cancer and their loved ones, providing useful information and practical ideas for dealing with the wide range of medical, emotional, relational, and spiritual challenges that cancer brings. With 74 concise chapters organized into 12 topical parts, people can read the book from beginning to end or directly to whatever chapters address their needs at any given time.

Cancer—Now What? draws on the experiences and insights Dr. Kenneth C. Haugk gained as he walked alongside his wife, Joan, during her battle with cancer. It then builds on that foundation through extensive research conducted with over 3,500 cancer survivors, loved ones, and medical professionals. The book is written in a warm, conversational style, encouraging and empowering readers throughout their journey.

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); Pathways - our Sunday morning education program (9:15 am Sunday mornings during the school year); and Wednesday Night Live! (Selected Wednesdays at 6:00pm).

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.
