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.

From mission and outreach initiatives in the local community to fellowship and healing ministry groups, our vibrant church community is active nearly every day of the week.
Church School is held for Pre-K through 8th Grade during regular Sunday Worship at 10am from Labor Day through June. High School Sunday School is held on the second Sunday of each month from September through June. Nursery Care is also available.
Age specific youth groups feature social time, Christian education, and a variety of fun activities giving all young people in our church community the opportunity to connect with peers and families who share similar values and beliefs. You don’t have to be a member of Pilgrim Church to participate, everyone is welcome!
We invite youth people age 14 and up to become members of Pilgrim Church through religious education, exploration of beliefs, mentoring and leadership as part of our Confirmation class. Classes meet twice a month beginning in September and Confirmation takes place in May.
Our historic building contains many unique spaces that would be perfect for a party, service, meeting, rehearsal, reception, or get-together…..even a dance!
We can accommodate just about any special event or regular series. All rooms are ADA-accessible, and climate-controlled year round.
