PILGRIM IS REOEPNING
Dear Members and Friends of Pilgrim:
It is with joy that we announce the target date for reopening Pilgrim for Worship Services! The target date is Sunday, June 14 at 10am.
We will be WORSHIPPING IN SAFETY WHILE EMPHASIZING GOOD HEALTH MEASURES for all attendees!
This journey has not been an easy one, and is also not complete, but we are relieved to be able to start a new chapter in the life of our church! Our church staff and leadership are focused on providing the BEST possible worship service while still protecting the people attending and assisting with it. Please bear with us during this time.
There will be rules in place to make this a safe experience and the rules will need to be followed. One example is: No mask worn, no admittance into the service. PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN MASK. The rules and protocols that will be in place are HERE. Please familiarize yourself with them.
We understand some people will be attending, while others feel uncomfortable doing so. We will respect everyone's choices during this time as there is no right or wrong response. This is a time to LOVE OUR "NEIGHBORS and support each other!
We pray for an end to this pandemic which has brought sickness, death, financial hardships and endless worry to the world! We look forward to June 14 and the reopening of worship services at Pilgrim! THANKS BE TO GOD!!
Your Brother in Christ,
Church Council President
What is Pilgrim’s vision?
Grow Disciples Now.
We believe in HOPE– That the dark things we experience are not the end, that there is a new reality, and that this reality is shown in Christ. (Philippians 2:5-11)
We believe in LOVE– Not simple, easy, pop-song love but hard, challenging, committed love. This is how God loved us so it’s how we ought to love one another. (1 John 4:7-12)
We believe in SUFFERING– We do not see suffering as a failure of God but rather the way God interacts with us. God’s story has always been to step into suffering and bring a new reality: Hope. God does not make us suffer but transforms it. (Romans 5:1-5)
We believe in JOY– This is good news that we believe does not mean we act serious and sad for the rest of our lives. It is a reason to live joyfully as a “thank you” for what God has done. (Psalm 95:1)
We believe in LOSERS– God has always chosen to transform the world by choosing the broken, the deniers, the betrayers, the murderers, the adulterers, cheats, and liars to be his people. We are proud to count ourselves among such an infamous group. (Romans 5:8)
We believe in HELP– That we are not set off alone and adrift but are given a great cloud of people to help us discover our joy and purpose. This is the church. (Hebrews 12:1)
We profess this creed as true in our Church:
I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit,
and born of the virgin Mary,
who suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died and was buried.
He descended into hell.
On the third day He rose again.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic* church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
*catholic means whole*
