Every year during Advent, donations from the congregation are used to purchase gifts for several families selected by Durham Social Services as being in need of help. Our participation in this task inspires everyone with the Christmas spirit.
During Lent 2013, the Board of Christian Service hosted a series on poverty in Fellowship Hall.
In Oct 2013, Pilgrim’s Board of Christian Service hosted an educational series led by Camryn and Ernest Smith, Asset Based Community Development Facilitators and Congregational Coaches, exploring ways that faith communities can engage marginalized people in our neighborhood and empower them to help themselves.
For videos of the speakers in both of the poverty series, go to Pilgrim’s YouTube channel.
This support group meets on 1st Thursdays at Pilgrim, and 3rd Wednesdays at Community UCC in Raleigh. Meetings begin at 7:30 pm. www.pflagtriangle.org
CoSA circles are created with one purpose: No More Victims.
CoSA work to reduce the risk of future sexual victimization by supporting individuals released from prison with a covenantal relationship in their task of leading responsible lives. Reducing the isolation and secrecy reduces the likelihood of a re-offense. For more information, visit www.durhamcosa.org or contact Drew Doll at firstname.lastname@example.org.
