RE-DISCOVER YOUR FAITH.
FIND YOURSELF HERE.
Welcome to Pilgrim Faith United Church of Christ!
We are a diverse mix of young and not-so-young, of new members and long-time members, all with a deep commitment to the ministries of caring for those in need while caring for one another. We care deeply about nurturing our children as well as adults, helping the homeless and feeding the hungry, offering a sincere and expressive worship experience, and growing in faith. This is a church with highly involved and committed people, full of love and concern, ready to welcome you, work alongside you in ministry, and explore together the wonders of God’s love. Come and re-discover your faith with us.
As Jesus taught us, we are called to love our neighbors.
At Pilgrim Faith United Church of Christ, we embrace diverse lives, loves, and spiritual journeys. We welcome immigrants and refugees. We welcome the LGBTQ+ community, knowing there is a place at God’s table for everyone. We are a multiracial and multicultural church, never excluding anyone based on skin color, culture, or ethnic origin.
We embrace abilities and disabilities, by ensuring our building and fellowship are accessible to all. We seek justice and peace in our community and world. We care about God’s creation by caring for our environment and being good stewards of our resources. We work to reduce stigmas and promote the inclusivity of all people.
Who We Are
We believe in extravagant welcome. As Jesus did not turn people away, we don't either. We insist that God’s communion table is for all, and God’s promise in baptism is binding. We extend hospitality as a symbol of God’s love. We welcome people of other faiths in worship, in work, in prayer, and at the Lord’s table.
Our church life together is grounded in worship that draws from the best of our traditions and is open to the Spirit moving through us today. Together we engage in programs of education, service, spiritual practices, fellowship, and music; all that we might grow closer to God, be drawn into a deeper relationship with one another, and be more steadfastly connected to the community and world in which we live. We rely on God's grace and guidance on our spiritual journey together.
