Next Steps

The Pioneer Church exists to give you the best opportunity to nurture your relationship with God and allow you the freedom to mature on your sacred journey as a follower of Jesus at your own pace.


Our mission as a congregation is to inspire you to follow Jesus as we worship, learn, and serve our community together. Your spiritual growth is one of our top priorities. Follow these ways, and you will find God and grow in your faith. If this is new to you, take a chance and see what happens!


1.  Attend Sunday worship in person or online, or join one of our midweek activities.


2.  Engage in a church ministry, fellowship activity, or volunteer with our Sunday church service. We provide numerous avenues for you to connect and contribute, including joining a small group like a Bible study or fellowship group, or donating to our local food pantry. Everyone is welcome, regardless of their background or experience.


3.  Join our choir, handbell choir, or community choir. Talk with our Music Director and see how you can contribute. Our choirs are made up of people with various skills and talents. No experience is necessary.


4.  Ready to commit? Join our church. Contact the pastor for more information on church membership. We look forward to welcoming you into our family.


5.  Financially support the church.


6.  Participate in Leadership Development, which would include joining one of our church committees, serving on the Council, or serving as an officer of the church. 


If you would like to know more about any of these steps, please get in touch with the Pastor. Our Pastor is happy to discuss your faith journey and ways you can grow alongside us in your faith.
