Mission & Outreach

Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there will my servant be also. Whoever serves me, the Father will honor. John 12:26

Mission & Outreach

The Pilgrim Church Congregration takes part in a number of service initiatives in the Greater Boston Area:

Fair Trade Ministry

The Pilgrim Church Fair Trade Ministry began in 2004. Coffee, tea and chocolate are the most popular items. In recent years, the ministry has expanded to in- clude SERRV items during November and December. All sales support local farmers and ar- tisans in countries around the world, helping them to provide a sustainable living.

Plymouth Coalition

The outreach committee supports this program with monthly monetary assistance and other support as requested. For instance, at our “Rally Sunday” this past September, Pilgrim Church had a special collection enabling us to deliver four large boxes of school supplies and several comforters and sheet sets, along with sandwiches, fruit, vegeta- bles and cookies.  Learn more at Plymouth Coalition for the Homeless Website.

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.  Learn more about Massachusetts Head Start Program.

Serve New England

Each month a new family from the congregation is asked to deliver a box of provisions including eggs, meat, fruit and other staples to 5 area families. The food is purchased by the Outreach committee through monthly financial donations.

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 Sandy Bondlow.

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. The group also funds and operates a food pantry in Plymouth. Learn more about Duxbury Interfaith Council.

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. More on our Youth Mission 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.

PCCP

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. Learn more about Pilgrim Church Child Care and Preschool.

Habitat for Humanity

Our first project began in 2015 with a Habitat for Humanity (habitat) house in Duxbury for a deserving family. Habitat for Humanity has become an important mission for our congregation. It was dedicated to the chosen family in 2016. The 2017 Habitat for Humanity project will be presented for a vote in November 2017.
