Ministry of Christian Outreach
The Ministry of Christian Outreach is responsible for furthering the work of the church in the community, the nation, and the world. It seeks to provide opportunities for the church community to live out the social implications of the Christian faith through individual and corporate action. It oversees the work of the Pilgrim Community Nursery School, and serves as the umbrella for groups such as the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Allies (LGBTQ&A) and the committee leading the church’s Sacred Conversations on Race (SCOR). It oversees the church’s own charitable and benevolence giving.
Ministry of Christian Education
The Ministry Christian Education organizes and supervises all Sunday school programs for children, youth, teens, and adults; the all church retreat each autumn; and church sponsored youth groups. Throughout the year we provide opportunities for family and intergenerational events, musical opportunities and a variety of enrichment activities for our youth. Each summer in July we offer a free 4-day Vacation Bible School evening program featuring storytelling, crafts, science, music and games for ages 3 through 14.
Ministry of Worship and the Arts
In collaboration with the Pastoral and Music Staff, the Ministry of Worship and the Arts serves the Pilgrim community by offering leadership and support for worship services and by nurturing the spiritual gifts of creativity and artistic expression in the congregation.
