“With That Moon Language”

Admit something:
Everyone you see, you say to them,

“Love me.”
Of course you do not do this out loud;

Who lives with a full moon in each eye That is always saying
With that sweet moon

Language
What every other eye in this world

Is dying to Hear.

Love on the Move

Over the summer and fall of 2019 Pioneer underwent significant physical renovation—including a new roof and a major Sanctuary makeover. During the same time congregation leaders engaged in multiple conversations about our missional renovation—how does a faith community like Pioneer seriously engage and impact the people around us for Christ? From this dialogue emerged a fresh new expression of our Pioneer mission: "Love on the Move."
