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.
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.
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.
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.
Pioneer Congregational Church is a congregation of the United Church of Christ. We honor and enjoy diversity of beliefs held by our members. We find that unity in Jesus Christ and celebrating our differences add to the richness and strength of our life together. We are an LGBTQ+ affirming church that proclaims the joy of knowing God, seeks to follow in the way of Jesus, grows in faith and hope, and serves in ways that foster love and compassion toward others.
