Pioneer’s ministries are to help you worship, grow, and serve our faith community. We gather for friendship too and have a wonderful time. We invite you to find your niche in our variety of church ministries, outreach, and fellowship groups.

Music Ministry

Our music ministry is under new leadership. Dr. Elliot Jones directs our church choir, a new community choir known as the Capital Chorale, and leads our hand bell ministry. Regardless of your musical experience, from novice to professional, we have a place for you.

Social Justice Witness

Responding to Jesus’s call to love our neighbors as ourselves, Pioneer Congregational United Church of Christ is passionately committed to working for social justice through activism, outreach, education, direct service to our community, and public policy advocacy.

Life Groups

We provide you with a variety of ways to make and build friendships, to help connect you with others, and offer various fellowship and spiritual growth activities. We have men's and women's fellowship groups, two different Bible studies, a new House Church ministry (beginning at the end of May, stay tuned for more information), a book club, and various boards and committees that serve the church's mission and ministry.
