PILGRIM ... IN OUR OWN WORDS
What difference does Pilgrim make in our lives?
I appreciate that Pilgrim is open and affirming and
welcoming to all. Pilgrim is the most friendly church I
have ever attended.
Caring, friendly community that is open and welcoming to all.
I guess I haven't figured that out yet. Place I can be
but I want more. Challenge or beliefs? More questions?
More answers, etc.
Pilgrim brings joy to my life. The people are loving,
caring and kind. They truly care about each other. I
know I can count on them in my time of need or in
celebrating joyous occasions. The children are innocent,
and their words and music make my day! They share their
gifts every day. I love my church!
The ideal church would be a vibrant place of worship,
welcoming and accepting everybody no matter what. Also
it would be not only a place but a community that goes
beyond the wall of the sanctuary to spread the word and
mission of God.
A place to worship God. A calming place. A place where I
feel welcomed and loved. Meaning to life events. Faith
to continue life's journey. Fellowship with good
people. Place where one can share.
A home church.
Pilgrim UCC allows me continually to fortify by belief
in what truly Jesus Christ stands for in my life.
Pilgrim worship enables me to focus on important
spiritual and social needs. Pilgrim also encourages me
to put faith, love and hope into concrete acts.
It reminds me to think outside of "me" and that makes me a better person and the world a better place.
Provided spiritual background for my
kids. Friendships. Spiritual education. Leverage for my
service. Support for my family challenges.
You don't have to check your brain at the door. A place
to be baptized. A place to be married. A place to be
remembered when I die. A place to be fed. A place to be
loved and accepted for who I am. A place to be
challenged to grow.
Sharing music and scripture. Sharing sermon and prayers.
Oasis in this theological conservative
community. "Family". Spiritual home. Progressive,
caring, concerned thinkers.
Pilgrim is a place where I feel responsible for the
group, for the physical existence (building and
grounds), for finding ways to share my abundance with
those less fortunate. It gives my life focus.
Pilgrim fills the space in my soul that cries out for
love, forgiveness and the knowledge that God is always
with me. The spirit of love greets me whenever I come in
the door and my spiritual needs are fulfilled.
Sanctuary ... place, spirit, emotion. Place of worship
through music. People.
Pilgrim is a place where I can worship God the way I
need to, and it's a place where I am allowed to
question, challenge and grow. It gives me a sense of
belonging to something bigger than myself, a place to be
with people who love God.
Pilgrim is a warm, friendly place to worship. I have
many wonderful memories here on my spiritual journey. I
always feel good when I come here. There are many warm,
sincere people here.
Pilgrim lets me live that change I want to see/be in the
world. It invites me to grow in faith and live the love
that Jesus exemplified.
Fellowship. Praise to God. Chance to serve others and
God. The love that abounds for one another.
Accepting of all people. Teaches inclusion to our children. Caring of all people.
Pilgrim gives me a place to share my musical talents
with people who enjoy it. Pilgrim also gives me an
opportunity to meet other people who I might not of met
A place to always feel like home. Welcomed. Loved. Laughter. Joy. Hugs.
Pilgrim is a place where my family is welcomed, accepted
and appreciated. We can be ourselves, share our gifts
and grow spiritually. Pilgrim church is an extended
family of interesting people who love God and each
Pilgrim is my church home. I am welcome no matter what
I've done wrong. It is where I am reminded of the
awesomeness of one greater than I. It reminds me to be
A feel good mood after church. Love between each
other. Support and understanding. The joy of coming to
see friends, hearing the music and hearing God's
love. Freedom of expressing ones thoughts.
Friends and prayer. Songs and choir. Pastor preaching. Members of the church of God.
An additional special place to think and meditate.
I love the church.
A place of peace for prayer and worship. Friends,
community. Home-my church. Feeling of happiness being in
a place where everyone knows my name. All my beliefs of
spirituality are recognized here.
The caring people. The sharing of our joys and
concerns. The beautiful music. The bells. The belonging
of this church.
Friendship. Community. Love. Worshipping together toward a common goal-honoring Christ.
Pilgrim is a church home for me and my family.
My ideal church would be filled with energy, great
soul-stirring music and a pastor whose sermons not only
breathe life into the bible text, but also inspires me
to go out and live/serve in God's spirit. The church
would be open and welcoming to all diversity, especially
LGBT. And I could feel like the church is my home and
the members are my family.
The denomination, the building and the people. Having
open communion, open doors, open hearts and arms to
welcome all. The building is a safe shelter and the
members friends and family.
The ideal church would be full of smiling faces. A place
where you can go and feel safe to let yourself become
vulnerable to God's message. Where it is OK to be
yourself, where you will always be accepted. Where you
can leave and feel fulfilled with a message with such
meaning that it carries you through to the next Sunday.
Sense of peace, and love, and caring away from the hatred taking place in our country.
