Mission & Outreach

Mission & Outreach

The Pilgrim Church Mission and Outreach Board is comprised of Pilgrim Church members working together as stewards of the Pilgrim Church Mission Trust Fund.  The Board identifies and selects worthy local, national, and global organizations in need; and together we share our time, talents, and financial support.

The most recent recipients of the Pilgrim Church Mission Trust Fund include:

UCC Ukraine Emergency Appeal

United Church of Churches has raised $2,192,000 to assist Ukrainians affected by war and disasters.

World Central Kitchen

The World Central Kitchen is first to the front lines, providing meals in response to humanitarian, climate, and community crises.

Wildflower for Kids

Wildflower is dedicated to serving children and families who have experienced the death of a parent, providing the gifts of camp, enriching experiences, and consistent, long-term support to help families to strengthen their resilience and create positive opportunities for the future. We envision a world where all children and families who experience the death of a parent receive the support they need to build resilience and to thrive.

South Shore Congregational Youth Conference

The South Shore Congregational Youth Conference is a “Vacation with a Purpose” comprised of youth groups from 5 South Shire churches dedicated to provide an amazing week of summer camp to our teens. Through chapel, vespers, morning watch, discussion groups, organized recreation, and a well rounded social program, we support faith building through fellowship and fun.


DARI (Duxbury Afghan Resettlement Initiative) is supporting an Afghan refugee family living in our community.

Head Start

Low-income families receive support in the form of subsidized school lunches and other necessities. Pilgrim Church members also shop for some requested items and deliver the items to the Head Start office. This program receives direct financial support on a monthly basis from Pilgrim Church.

Pine Street Inn

This is a soup kitchen in Boston. Pilgrim Church takes a group of up to eight volunteers to serve food to the homeless the last Friday of every month. If interested in participating, contact the Pilgrim Church Office.

Duxbury Interfaith Council

This inter-denominational group pools their resources through monthly financial donations and the money is used to take care of immediate needs of families in distress.

Youth Mission Trip

Every two years, the senior high youth group has traveled to New Orleans to help the community re-group and re-build after Hurricane Katrina. They have helped with their hands and their hearts in conjunction with other churches that have also taken on this cause as a special mission. The teenagers raise funds over a period of a year and a half to help fund the trip.

Pilgrim Food Pantry

Pilgrim Church collects a set group of food essentials and distributes bags of these staples to individuals or families in need on a monthly basis. The Pilgrim Food Pantry is open to anyone in need of food assistance, not just Duxbury residents.


The Pilgrim Child Care & Preschool (PCCP), is a non-profit organization created to serve the community with care and education for infants, toddlers, preschool, and Kindergarten children. The congregation supports the efforts of PCCP via scholarships and support.
