Faith can be a beautiful thing. On Sunday mornings we share our beliefs and how they drive us to action. As a progressive church, we don’t care if everyone through our doors believes the same thing, because we know that the way we behave towards one another is the fullest expression of what we believe. Like most UCC churches, there is no creed or doctrine required for membership, only earnest desire to explore your faith & journey with others along the way.
If you’re looking for something new, you’ve found it here at Pilgrim. We are not your grandfather’s church, but a church that embraces marriage equality and social justice and the constantly evolving meaning of faith for each generation. Or maybe you’re just looking for a place to belong, to share life’s journey with brothers and sisters, then Pilgrim offers an extravagant welcome to all.
We work out our faith and life together by sharing in Sunday worship, midweek activities, social justice ministries, Christian education, and more. We share in life’s difficulties and its joys.
We seek to create a safe and healing space where we can rejoice, suffer, heal and hope together. All persons are welcome in the Pilgrim community. We are an open and affirming community in the United Church of Christ, welcoming of all persons regardless of race, gender identity, or sexual orientation. Everyone is welcome at Pilgrim.
We are called to strive for peace and justice among all people and to protect and restore the integrity of our Earth. As Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere,” we strive for justice and reconciliation.
As a progressive community, we are constantly exploring new modes of spirituality. Centering prayer, theological book studies, and sharing among members leads us to the ‘thin places’ where we perceive the divine in our world. We are called to believe that the life and teachings of Jesus can lead to an awareness of the sacred and unity of all life. We find more grace in the search for understanding, believing that there is value in honest questioning, than we do in achieving certainty.
