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!

News & Announcements

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
  • Begins October 14th

 

Pioneer High Schoolers enjoyed a great week at Montreat Youth Conference this summer.
