We are a family of believers, centered in Christ, reaching out to others, and welcoming all. We worship God, help each other to grow in God’s love, and to share our gifts, seeking to follow where Jesus leads.
Why not make the holiday season even more special for your family this year by attending some of the Advent and Christmas worship services at Pilgrim Church of Duxbury?
Like other Christian churches, Pilgrim Church, which is affiliated with the United Church of Christ, holds Advent worship services the first four Sundays in December.
Under the guidance of the church’s new Senior Minister, the Rev. William Ferguson, all Advent services start at 10 a.m. in the church sanctuary.
On the Sunday before Christmas, Dec. 23, a special Christmas Pageant service will be held, also starting at 10 a.m. In this service, children and adults will act out the Christmas story, proclaiming the arrival of Jesus Christ’s birth. The service will include readings, acting, music and prayer.
On Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, two services will be held, at 4 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. The afternoon service will be a family service intended for children and adults. Then, a traditional service of lessons, carols and candlelight will be held that evening. This service will tell the Christmas story through song and Scripture. Participants are invited to come early, at 8 p.m., to listen to an extended musical prelude.
These, like all services at Pilgrim Church, are open to anyone, no matter where they are on life’s journey.
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.
