Current Needs at the church:

Music Ministries
All of Pilgrim’s musical groups welcome new members.

Outreach to the Homebound
We are always looking for members interested in visiting “In Care” members 
of Pilgrim who are unable to leave their homes.

Yard Work, Snow Shoveling and Building Maintenance
We need people who can help mow the lawn at the church, shovel snow in the winter, 
and help with maintenance to keep our facility welcoming and accessible.

Help out on Sunday Mornings
On Sunday mornings there are opportunities to greet visitors, serve as liturgist,
help with our video and sound system, and serve coffee and treats during hospitality, 

If you would like to help in any of these roles, please contact the church office to let us know.


“I feel good helping with the Small Children’s Closet because it means children in our community will have warm clothes.”

“I want to serve because when I needed help, my church was there for me.”

“I like it at Pilgrim because we work to help ‘the least of these’ like it says in Matthew 25: 
‘I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.’ “
