CARAVAN IS LOOKING FORWARD!
GOD IS STILL ALIVE, HE IS STILL IN CONTROL AND WE ARE MOVING FORWARD!!
Feb. 24, 2021: Hopefully you have seen the message that we are planning a special night-IN PERSON!
We have guests coming that will share with us that evening and we will be blessed by the “Big Blast” people. We will stay distanced from those who aren’t in our family, sit every other pew and wear masks. We will meet from 6:30 pm and be excused at 7:45 pm. Parents will pick children up in sanctuary. You WILL NEED TO CALL THE CHURCH at (989) 224-6865 and let us know how many from your family are coming. Adults are welcome to stay too but need that number in the count too. Some who registered for Caravan this year have paid for and gotten their 20-21 T-shirts. I do have at least 15 more shirts if you would like to buy one at this February’s meeting, I will have the shirts on hand, hopefully having your size! First come first serve that night!
TWO MORE IN PERSON CARAVAN NIGHTS PLANNED!
March 24th: Easter Theme
April 21st Last year’s awards/trophies handed out and hopefully another fun activity.
This year’s 6th graders WILL BE INVITED TO THIS MEETING SO YOU CAN GET YOUR TROPHIES FROM LAST YEAR!
THIS WILL END THE 20-21 CARAVAN YEAR.
For these two meetings you will also need to call the church office and tell us the numbers coming.
We hope you all are tuning into the live stream Caravan nights on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm or find it another day on our Pilgrim website: pilgrimumchurch.com and look for the Caravan kids corner. We are teaching the New Testament stories as planned.
Last years Caravaners will get “remind” messages also and you can always call the church office for information.
Hope to see you in person realllllllllllllllllllllllyyyyyyyyyyyyyysoonnnnnnnn!

IN PERSON WORSHIP Starting January 17, 2021
We know that this time apart has been difficult for everyone, as we have been worshipping virtually, instead of together, as the body of Christ. The Pilgrim UMC Response Team has met and set the target for “in person” Worship to begin again starting Sunday, January 17, 2021 unless the Governor’s orders change. We are planning on having 3 services at 9, 10 and 11 am like we have done in the past with 50 people or under attending each service. We are asking that you wear a mask and social distance. Again, the ushers will be releasing people starting with the back pew and forward to allow for less traffic flow. The Sanctuary will be disinfected between each service.
We want to thank you for your patience and understanding as we go forward. We ask that you would pray alongside us as we continue to trod through uncharted territory. If you would like to attend a worship service on January 17th please call the office and let us know your desired worship time. Please feel free to call the office if you have any questions at 224-6865.
