Small Children's Closet

There will be a meeting for the Closet volunteers this coming Saturday, February 4, at 10:00 am at the church. We will welcome our new Closet volunteers with refreshments and fellowship. Agenda items will include general information, planning for the Seasonal Change Over, and changes in Client’s Order Form.

Church Clerk

Pilgrim is still looking for a person to act in the Church Clerk’s position. The responsibilities of the Clerk are varied but the primary duty is to be the note taker at EMT meetings and to make the official call for formal meetings of the congregation. Anyone who wants more information can contact Ted Prinz or Karen Davis.

Bible Study

Pastor Peter holds a Bible study at Burcham Hills on Tuesdays at 10 am in the Slate Room. We are currently studying the book of the Mark. Guests are welcome to join, but must be Covid free and wear a mask to enter the facilities.

We will be resuming our Bible Study at Pilgrim on Monday mornings at a new time. The first meeting will be Monday, September 19 from 11:30 to 1:00 pm. Everyone is welcome to come.

Reopening Committee

We will continue to make the wearing of masks optional in the church building. The committee will continue to monitor the case numbers and make recommendations as needed.

News From Plymouth Church

We have been advised that in their congregational meeting last Sunday, the members of Plymouth Congregational Church voted to dissolve the church and leave this location. According to Moderator Jean Bolley, this does NOT mean that they are immediately ceasing all operations. For now, Plymouth will continue to operate, meaning all staff will continue to be employed and they will still worship together on Sundays at 10:30 am. All mission work will continue. As plans and a timeline are firmed up, we will keep you informed.

Neighborhood Pantry

Thanks to those of you that put food directly in or send in money so that Judy Hackett can purchase food for the pantry. Pilgrim has been able to put in food most days. Depending on the weather, fresh food such as fruits, vegetables, bread, cheese, yogurt and lunch meats have been purchased. Weather dictates some of the items that are put in.

REMEMBER: Food must have a current use date and purchased from a store. Dated and opened items are removed from the Pantry.
