Music and worship are at the very heart of our community and ministry. In worship we encounter God's word and share in a meal at the Lord's table. Our liturgy, preaching, music, and prayers proclaim and celebrate how we are enfolded in God's grace and are saved through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Pilgrim is dedicated to proclaiming the Gospel through music and fine arts. In 2017, we installed a new pipe organ to better support our mission through music.
Our Pilgrim Ringers adult handbell choir is led by Kevin Donley. We rehearse on Thursday from 6-7 p.m., September to May. We perform as a part of worship about once a month. Previous handbell experience is appreciated but not necessary, and the ability to read music is helpful but not required.
Our Youth Bell Choir joins our adult Pilgrim Ringers in making a joyful noise with bells as part of our worship. Our Youth Bell Choir welcomes all middle school age children and meets on Sunday mornings from 9-9:30 a.m., September to May.
Our adult choir leads the singing of hymns and liturgy, and presents the Gospel in new, melodious, and inspiring ways. Joining choir is a great way to feel "plugged in" at Pilgrim. We welcome singers of all ability levels! We are a friendly bunch and would love to have new singers joining us. We rehearse September to May on Thursday nights from 7-8:30 p.m. We usually sing one worship service per Sunday.
All children in Grades 1-6 are invited to sing in our Children's Choir. The Children's Choir rehearses September to May, every-other Friday night as a part of Kids in Christ. Our preschool age children enrolled in Sunday School sing with our Little Lambs Choir. The Little Lambs rehearse for a few minutes from September-May during Sunday School. Both choirs join together in performing a special Christmas program and spring musical.
Pilgrim's Combo Group rehearses once a month, and leads worship on the second Sunday of each month. They bring a contemporary, acoustic approach to hymns, songs, and liturgy.
