The Search Committee continues to meet regularly to discern the call for our next Senior Pastor. They have invited three candidates for in-person visits in May. Each one will preach at a local congregation, fellowship with the committee, and visit Pilgrim’s campus. After these visits and a discernment period, they anticipate calling one of these individuals to serve at Pilgrim. The congregation will be given two weeks notice before the date when the recommended candidate will preach and lead worship followed by a congregational meeting to consider the candidate. They anticipate this happening in June.
We’ve got indoor jobs and outdoor jobs, weed-ing, raking, painting, cleaning and more! All skill levels welcome (on the job training provid-ed!). Snacks, fellowship, and that good feeling from a job well done all included.
Please let Ami Nagle know if you plan to join in on the fun so we can have the supplies ready and jobs organized.
Congratulations and thank you to all who planned and built this beautiful addition to our church property!
