Adult Education

Our mission at Pilgrim Church is captured in our motto Come Grow Serve.


Once you have found us we hope you will COME join us and then we encourage you to GROW in faith and spirit. 

If you are not sure you are ready to join us and want to put your toe in the waters of faith here, try one of our study groups and see if it feels right, or feels like an invitation to start your own new faith journey. 


We try to offer several ways to grow your faith. One great way to grow in faith is to join a group. 


Here are some ideas for groups that are always open to new members. 

Sundays at 10 AM:


Every week we have a class at 10 a.m. in the Conference Room. 


Here are some examples of the offerings.
