Welcome to Pilgrim Church of Duxbury

An Open and Affirming Congregation of the United Church of Christ

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.

We are proud to be Open and Affirming

Lynn DeHart announces Sunday, Dec. 16 that Pilgrim Church of Duxbury has been officially accepted as an Open and Affirming Congregation of the United Church of Christ.

In mid December, Pilgrim Church of Duxbury received confirmation from the United Church of Christ that it has been officially been recognized as an Open and Affirming congregation.

 

What does that mean?

 

It means, among other things that everyone, no matter where they are on life’s journey, is welcome at Pilgrim Church. It means that people of “every age, sexual orientation, gender identify and expression, ethnicity and race, physical and mental ability, and socioeconomic status to enter into the full life and ministry of this church.”

 

With this announcement, the church became the 1,568th local congregation to be so recognized nationally since 1985, and the 181st in Massachusetts. To become so recognized, the church adopted the following welcoming statement:

 

“Inspired by God’s love for all people, we the members of Pilgrim Church of Duxbury, United Church of Christ, declare ourselves to be an Open and Affirming congregation.

“Following the teachings of Jesus Christ, we invite people of every age, sexual orientation, gender identify and expression, ethnicity and race, physical and mental ability, and socioeconomic status to enter into the full life and ministry of this church.

 

“Guided by the Holy Spirit, we seek to be an expression of that unconditional love and to welcome all of God’s children.”
