Pilgrim Church is connected to the wider community in multiple ways.
We are an active participant in the work of our denomination, the United Church of Christ, and are institutionally engaged with a variety of partners in promoting social and environmental justice. Here we provide notices of actions and activities that, while not specifically undertaken by Pilgrim, provide opportunities for members and friends to live out their faith in action.
Bring justice to Springfield! Join us for prayer, action and face-to-face visits with your legislators.
