News & Announcements

Reel Entertainment, Real Fellowship

Family and friends of the Pioneer Christian Preschool and Pioneer Presbyterian Church are invited to a night of entertainment and fellowship for the whole family.  On Friday, March 1 there will be a special viewing of “Small Foot” here at the church.  Doors will open at 6:00pm and the movie will begin at 6:30pm.  There will be other activities and crafts to go along with our movie available.  We will also be offering a snack concession stand where you can choose some of your favorite movie treats to nibble on while enjoying the show.  There is no admission fee, but any and all donations will be shared between the Pioneer Preschool and Pioneer Youth Group.  We look forward to seeing you for a fun and eventful night at Pioneer.

From March to Montreat

The Pioneer Youth Group will be hosting a spaghetti lunch fundraiser on Sunday, March 3rd immediately following our worship services.  We will have spaghetti, salad, garlic bread, drinks and desserts as a part of our meal.  We will have gluten free pasta for those who may need that option.  All donations will go toward the youth groups trip to Montreat Youth Conference this summer in Montreat, NC.  This will be the first of a handful of fundraising opportunities our youth will host in order to help offset expenses for our trip.  While at Montreat, our group will participate in many different experiences from small groups, keynote, worship, recreation, fellowship and a service project day with Asheville Youth Mission.  We hope you will make plans to stay after worship on Sunday, March 3 to enjoy a meal and fellowship together, while also supporting our youth group.

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
