We gather at 10:00 a.m. every Sunday morning.

(Please note the NEW TIME of 10:00 a.m., a change from 9:30 a.m.)

At Pilgrim Faith, we seek our worship to be meaningful, uplifting, affirming of God’s love and power in Christ, and experience the rich liturgical history of the church. We are an Open and Affirming congregation. ALL are welcome (we really mean it!) so come as you are to worship the still-speaking God.

Our worship services are all about community, love, and praise. We praise God through communal prayer, music, confession, preaching, sharing, and Holy Communion. Our worship aims to be transformative in many ways, offering us opportunities to seek comfort and hope, to find our stories in the stories of our faith, and to experience the presence of God.

Worship is rooted in the biblical witness to God’s saving deeds in history. We observe two sacraments: Holy Communion and Baptism. Communion is observed on the first Sunday of the month. We celebrate the various “seasons” of the church: Advent, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, Pentecost. Our liturgy conforms to the order of worship in the Book of Worship of the United Church of Christ, and we use the lectionary as our selected scripture readings each Sunday.

We don’t ask you to come be like us, but to bring your faith and gifts with you, share them with us, and help us build a living community.
