Women's Ministry in Partnership with Face to Face

Since 1863, Pilgrim has shared Christ's message of love through preaching, teaching, worship, prayer and community outreach.

Pilgrim has a  legacy of  community service that has and continues to address the needs of  all ages and all stages of life.

Pilgrim's service includes hosting Scout Troops, the "Jolly Seniors" (a program for Senior Citizens),  hosting prison ministries, as well as a chapter of Alcoholics Anonymous and a community garden.  Pilgrim also provides a "Little Free Library" to inspire a love of reading, provides food baskets during the holidays and assists members of the community with social service needs. 

The Comfort Circle provides support to those who are grieving the loss of a loved one.
