We continue to monitor the COVID cases in our region, the guidelines set forth by the CDC and the Governor’s Office, and the United Church of Christ. This page will provide updated information about the various ministries at Pilgrim Faith United Church of Christ.

Sunday Worship: Virtual/Online 

The Sanctuary will be open for worship in person on Easter Sunday. We continue to conduct virtual services on Zoom and Facebook Live on Sundays at 10:00 AM, as well.  Our Pandemic Response Team has been meeting to discuss the reopening of the church building for worship. They have been watching and following the Illinois State guidelines.  Any decisions will be passed through the church council before moving forward.

Food Pantry

The Pilgrim Faith Food Pantry continues the vital mission of helping feed and nourish those in our community in need of assistance. We require registration and that you are limited to one (1) visit per week. We have moved inside due to weather. Due to COVID-19, face coverings (masks) and appropriate social distancing is required, and only one household is allowed in the “shopping area” at a time.

Outside Organizations

Many community groups and outside organizations use the Pilgrim Faith church facilities on a regular basis, including support groups and Scouts. Each group is responsible for making their own decision about in-person gatherings, so please check with the specific organization for more details. Of course, all who use the facilities are expected to use appropriate social distancing and wear face protection.
