Why attend Pilgrim Lutheran?
Pilgrim Lutheran is a church where you can feel at home and connect with others just like you. We strive to be a model of faithfulness to God and relevance to culture and compassion to people. We believe that Jesus is our Savior. But 'Salvation' is not just the goal; salvation is a gateway to a devoted lifestyle. We believe that the Church should walk humbly, show mercy, and seek the lost through God's Grace. This is what you will experience when you worship at Pilgrim Lutheran.
Who attends Pilgrim Lutheran?
Everyone is welcome at Pilgrim Lutheran. We cater to a growing and diverse community - economically, generationally, and ethnically. We believe that the Church is a community and this means a community of relationship. We sing, we listen, we share communion, we collect offering, and we socialize. We never discriminate.
What can I expect when I visit?
Our goal is to give you a warm welcome and show gratitude that you have decided to visit us. We believe you will experience the love of God and our community.
Do you have special music?
We provide a variety of music depending on the service style, liturgy and season.
How long do your services last?
Services normally last one hour. That does not include any fellowship that goes on afterwards. We understand people are very busy, but we also understand, and greatly desire to spend time in worship, in the Word, in ministry, and in fellowship.
I'm not Lutheran. Can I attend services here?
Of course! We welcome anyone who seeks to know Christ... and to make Christ known. We have a detailed Inquirer's Class if you are thinking of joining, but you are welcome to worship with us regardless of your current or past status.

Who can participate in Holy Communion?
If you wish to partake of the Lord's Supper at Pilgrim Lutheran, please be guided by your response to these questions:
Do you believe that you are a sinner and in need of the forgiveness offered by Christ in the Lord's Supper?
Do you believe that Christ's body and blood are truly present in, with, and under the bread and wine even as Christ promised?
Do you believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, as taught at Pilgrim Lutheran and, by your participation in the sacrament, give testimony to the faith we share?
Before communing for the first time at Pilgrim Lutheran, you are asked to please speak with one of the pastors. Children are welcomed at the Lord's Table to receive a blessing, but should not partake of the Sacrament prior to Confirmation.
