what we believe

Welcome from Rev. Madison Shockley

WelcomeWelcome to Pilgrim Church, an open and affirming community within the United Church of Christ with a progressive theology, a commitment to spiritual growth and passion for social justice. We gather to seek after the mystery of our faith, seeking to create a safe space where we can rejoice, suffer, heal, and hope together. Pilgrim is an inclusive community where all persons are welcome. Progressive Theology leads us to explore new ideas about God, new understandings about Jesus and a fresh take on our ancient texts that speak to our present moment. We preach and teach and sing and serve in a variety of ways that allow us to demonstrate our values.

We are a multi-racial, multi-generational church that seeks to offer everyone God’s extravagant welcome. We would love it if you would join us for a time of worship, music, and fellowship on Sunday morning at 10:00 am in Carlsbad.
