What to Expect
Our Sunday morning worship service (10:30a) is mostly traditional. However, usually on the fourth 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.
Children 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 just started 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 who would have need of it.
The Saturday evening worship service (6:00p) is fully contemporary, and is celebrated with Holy Communion. However, currently this service meets only once a month (see Calendar).
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. In addition, about 20% of our congregation is comprised of children and young adults.
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 is present, and is received by all who take communion with us. Therefore, it is important that we know your faith background before you commune.
