Disicipleship Ministry

errR...ational Christianity

In an age of increasing skepticism and "scientific" advancement, believers often feel forced into a place of resignation regarding the fact that Christianity must simply be accepted against all worldly wisdom. This second place rationality is becoming more and more commonplace in Christian circles - despite incredible evidence and reasoning that powerfully testifies to the truth of Christianity. If you have ever felt like your faith is inadequate to confront worldly wisdom come join us in Room 200 on Wednesday nights for a six-week Bible study led by Neal Miller that examines the rational and defensible basis of Christianity against other philosophies. Study began June 7th!



Dollar Club

Dollar Club Sunday is the second Sunday of each month. We ask that you place an extra $1 bill in the offering bag. All single $1 bills will be used to help people in our church family or the community in the name of Jesus Christ. (Only single $1 bills apply, any other amount will be added to the General Fund.)

Medical Short Term Mission Opportunity

Pinedale is partnering with the NC Dental Society, Alleghany Cares, Footbridge, and the Cornerstone Christian Fellowship to hold a two-day dental clinic on August 4th-5th, 2017 in Sparta NC.  We're planning to offer full dental services to over 400 people in these two days.  If you have an interest in participating, please email Danny at for more information.  For more information click here

We are meeting each Tuesday night from 6:30-8:00PM in Room 207. Our goal is to have fun but also to work on projects to give away as an outreach. (washcloths, baby hats, hats for the homeless, etc.) Our current project is a knitted scarf. Bring your own supplies and join us! Contact the Church Office if you have questions.! 


Men's Ministry

Wednesday Night Bible Study

A new men's study began on Wednesday, June 7th at 7:00pm in Room 203. The Conqueror Series is a series on sexual purity that focuses on heart transformation instead of behavior modification.

Women's Ministry

Wednesday Night Bible Study

All women of Pinedale are invited to begin a new, nine week book-club type study on the book Radical by David Platt. Take a transforming journey in authentic discipleship. As the pastor of a large and wealthy congregation, David Platt began to see a discrepancy between the reality of his Church and the way Jesus said His followers lived. In Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream, Platt examines how American Christianity has manipulated the gospel to fit our cultural preferences and challenges readers to rediscover the path. Books are on sale in the foyer for $10. We will discuss Chapter 1 this coming Wednesday night, the 19th, at 7:00pm in Room 204.

New Women's Group

A new community of Christian women mentorship is starting at Pinedale.  The Titus 2 Community of Sisters is a group for women of all ages to join together and encourage one another through all seasons of life. This complimentary ministry for all women will be meeting for 5 weeks this summer and having events throughout the year. Wednesday night meetings will be July 19th-August 16th in Room 201 from 7:00pm-8:00pm. For signups and questions, we will be in the Church Lobby on Sunday, July 16th or contact Ashley Widener.
