What's New At Pilgrim
Pilgrim Worship Schedule

8:00 and 10:30 am - Sunday Worship Service
9:00 am - Sunday Fellowship and
                Word Of God Hour
6:00 pm - Monday Worship Service

 
Monday "30 Minute Chapel" worship services are held from 6:00 to 6:30 pm.  This is a shortened service that is held in the Fellowship Hall. It provides an opportunity for Worship for those who were out of town over the weekend.  In addition, the service is more informal, so that it is more inviting to those who are wanting to learn about God’s Word and Pilgrim but because of their lack of church background feel overwhelmed and intimidated by the thought of attending a usual Sunday service. For more information, please call the church office at (480) 830-1723.

Prayer Requests

Pilgrim’s Prayer And Care Team is glad to announce the re-opening of the Prayer Box.  Located in the narthex, the Prayer Box is placed so that you might have an opportunity to request prayer, even if you do not wish for those prayers to be made public during a worship service.  In the past, prayer requests have ranged from "feelings of loneliness" to "death of a loved one."  Prayer Cards are located near the Prayer Box.  Print your name and prayer request in the Prayer Card, seal the envelope, and place it in the Prayer Box. The Prayer And Care Team will confidentially pray over the items within.  In addition, printed prayers from the team will be placed in the narthex for anyone who would like to take one home. Please keep the team in your prayers.
