Christmas Eve Service 2022

December 24, 2022

For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders. And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, On the throne of David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness From then on and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will accomplish this. (Isaiah 9:6-7)

Tonight’s offering will go to the PCA Ministerial Fund. This fund is used to provide assistance for disabled and needy retired pastors, missionaries, and church lay workers, their widows and dependent children. Very often a disabled or retired pastor or the widow of a pastor is faced with serious financial hardship. PCA has established this fund to help meet this need. We here at Pioneer are pleased to take part in this denomination-wide offering. We encourage your participation.


Pre-service music is provided this evening by Rolland Steffens, Gregory Sleasman, Lilly Kenyon, and an ensemble of Rebecca Steffens, Trina Kenyon, Isie Kenyon and John Kenyon
