Hundreds turn out for Rally Sunday service and picnic

Hundreds of South Shore residents came to Pilgrim Church of Duxbury Sunday to participate in its annual Rally Sunday service and picnic.

 

Traditionally, Rally Sunday is the kickoff the Church School year when families return to church after summer vacation.

 

The day had special significance, however, as it was the official start of the Rev. Bill Ferguson’s role as the church’s new Senior Minister.

 

Rev. Ferguson, a native of Quincy, and former Rockland resident, was called in June as the church’s senior pastor following a two-year long search process.  Prior to arriving in Duxbury, he had been the Senior Pastor at the First Congregational Church of Pelham, N.H.

 

During the service, Rev. Ferguson lead the congregation in a special ceremony commonly referred to as a Blessing of the Backpacks, in which children are blessed as they return to school.

 

Following two baptisms, Rev. Ferguson preached on new beginnings.
