Welcome to Faith Lutheran. We are an Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) congregation. We are part of the Sierra-San Joaquin Conference of the Sierra-Pacific Synod. This congregation is a place where you are invited to celebrate, lament, rejoice, and experience lives being made new.
In 1988, a group of people in Pioneer, California met in a carport to share a dream. Out of that meeting was birthed Faith Lutheran Church of Pioneer, and the plan to build a church that cares deeply about serving our local community. Please join us as we continue to live out that dream.
The sanctuary at Faith Lutheran was built with love and care. The altar is made from one of the local tree giants, a Ponderosa Pine. The cross was handcrafted from an Incense Cedar, and our baptismal font is a grinding rock from the Ione band of Miwok Indians of Amador County, CA. Outside you'll find Easter Hill, a small amphitheater built into the hill, as well as a walkable labyrinth.
