Other News:
CONGREGATIONAL MEETING NOTES:  Feeling a need to make sure everyone has the same expectations for our Community Center.  We felt it would be smart to pause the process for a bit.

The congregational meeting was adjourned until a plan could be presented.

Please keep our efforts to reach our community with the news of a loving Lord in your prayers.

SHARE We have noticed more “hits” on our web-page when people share.  If the service is one that you benefited from, why not share it?  This is a much easier way to invite a friend who might be “searching” to Pilgrim.

CONSIDER ONLINE GIVING - During the COVID  19 social distancing the Church Council asks that you continue your offerings to church - the bills continue make their way into our mailbox.  There are two ways you can do this:  1.  use online giving (there is a link at the bottom of this email for online giving)  2.  Mail your offerings 

Motivated by our Savior’s gifts and promises we want to continue to offer our gifts to him as our response.  Online giving can help with that
