What to Expect

Sunday Morning Divine Service - 10:30am

This service is mostly traditional.  However, usually on the second Sunday of the month, we have a contemporary service, with our music ensemble leading the congregation.  In  addition, on the first and third Sundays of each month Holy Communion is celebrated during the service.

Saturday Evening Service - 6:00pm

This service is fully contemporary, and is celebrated with Holy Communion.  Here, we gather around God's Word and Sacrament, just as in our Sunday Service, but in a more intimate setting and with contemporary songs of prayer and praise. Currently this service meets once a month (see Calendar).

Holy Communion: Visitors who are not members of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod are asked to speak with the Pastor before communing at our altar.   We believe that in the Sacrament, the true body and the true blood of our Savior Jesus are present, and are received by all who take communion with us, through faith.  Holy Communion is also a public confession of our unity of faith and doctrine. Therefore, it is important that we know your faith background before you commune.

Children in kindergarten - 6th grade begin the service in the sanctuary with the adults, and then, about 15 minutes into the service, they are dismissed for Sunday School.  We have an Early Communion program in our congregation, whereby we train and then commune children in the fourth grade and above.  They will return to the service at the time that the Lord's Supper is celebrated, so that they can participate in the Sacrament.
A nursery is available during services for those with infants and children through preschool age, who would have need of it. 
The members and visitors of Pilgrim dress mostly casual, and are from the greater Burton area.   Parking is easy and our entire facility is handicap accessible.
Since our congregation was founded in 1968, we still maintain a number of charter members, as well as many families who have been with our congregation for 30-40 years.
