Ministries

At Pioneer Valley Baptist Church there are ministries for everyone.

Sunday School

Our Sunday School classes meet at 9:30 Sunday mornings, and are divided into age-appropriate groups from 4 year old to adults. Sunday School is a way for all in attendance to grow spiritually and in our knowledge of the Bible.

Youth Ministry

The youth group meets during the Sunday School hour at 9:30 am as well as the first Friday night of each month at 7:00 pm. Teens will hear practical Bible messages, have fun playing games and singing songs, and develop friendships with other likeminded Christian teenagers.

Children's Church

We want to help children discover how much God loves them at a very early age. Our children’s ministry—for ages 4 through 6th grade—is provided during each of our weekly services.

Nursery

Pioneer Valley Baptist Church has thriving children’s ministries starting as early as newborns. Mothers will be delighted to see our loving, newly remodeled nursery. Childcare is provided for all services, and many of our workers are mothers themselves.

Adults and Parents

Our goal is to help you be more productive at work, have a healthy marriage, and/or build a great relationship with your children while keeping God #1 on your priority list. Whether you’re a single adult, a young-married couple, or a mature couple with children, we’d love for you to join us Sunday mornings for a time of fellowship to meet fellow adults and couples and to listen to sound, biblical teaching to help you have a successful Christian life.

Addictions Recovery Program

Reformers Unanimous (RU) is a ministry of our church that reaches out to those struggling with addictions. This program runs every Friday night from 7-8:00 pm. During this time, we go over the Scriptural principles found in the program on how to properly identify and deal with addictions in our lives. RU is a national program with an astounding success rate, founded entirely on the Word of God. This faith-based program ministers to both those with addictions and those just looking for an additional Bible Study.

Soul-Winning & Outreach

The Bible tells us that God has entrusted Christians with the duty of telling others of the Gospel. Our church has many shceduled times where we reach out to those without Christ: Saturday Morning Soul-Winning & Bus Visitation at 10 am.

Bible Studies, Discipleship & Family Counseling

Our church strives to produce Christians who are spiritually growing and learning to live a practical, day-to-day Christianity. That’s why we equip ourselves with truths from the Word of God that draw us closer to Christ in every situation. This is accomplished not only through our regular services, but through various programs throughout the week as well.

Russian Interpretation

We have Russian interpretation available for our adult services.
