What to Expect on Your First Visit
 
     You have come to the right place!  It’s our desire to create a warm environment where you feel welcomed, and where there is an opportunity for God to work in your life and the life of your family.
     Upon entering the church building, you will be greeted by our friendly welcoming team.  You will be given an information bulletin that will tell you about the day’s ministry opportunities as well as upcoming events.  The welcoming team will be happy to assist you and any children accompanying you to your respective meeting places. 
 
What Should I Wear?
 
     This is a very common question that people want to know about before they visit a church service.  There is no dress code at PBC.  Comfortable attire is the answer to this oft asked question.  Our emphasis is not about what people wear but that they open their hearts to the word of God and experience the love of believers for one another.  Modesty is the Biblical principle that governs what we wear to the house of God.  So . . . . . . come as you are!

How Do I Meet People?

     Pilgrim’s Baptist Church is not a place for spectators. It is a place where people can be involved with ministry. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at our Church.
 

Life Groups:

     Life Groups address three important dynamics of a healthy church.  1. They promote transparent fellowship – 2. They provide a discipleship environment – 3. They connect people in a powerful way to care for one another.  Our life groups meet every Wednesday in homes throughout our community.  Call the church for information on how you can connect with a Life-Group.  Life-Groups can be summed up into 3 words:  Doing Life Together!
 

Small Group Bible Study:

     Often, small groups of people are better able to interact and learn about a topic than larger groups.. For that reason,  we have small group bible studies every Sunday morning. The purpose of these small groups is to connect with one another and concentrate on the Word of God for practical Christian living.  Our Adult Small Groups meet every Sunday morning at 9:30 at the church.  Presently we have 4, adult and young adult small group Bible studies and studies for children and youth from nursery thru high school.
 

Fellowship Opportunities:  

     We believe that fellowship is an essential and integral part of building the lives of people.  It is the love of Jesus Christ and the word of God that is our common bond.  At PBC, fellowship opportunities abound through various Bible studies, special ministry events, community service and breaking bread together. 
 

Women’s Fellowship:  

     Our Women’s Groups give the ladies in our church family special times of fellowship.  Our women study the Bible and build relationships through our Ladies Small Group Bible Study every Sunday morning at 9:30 at the church.  On the first and third Tuesday of the month, our ladies meet together for fellowship and Bible study in homes at 10:00 am and 7:00 pm. These groups provide a refreshing discipleship opportunity for the women in the church. 
 

Teen Ministry:  

     Our teens meet on a regular basis on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings and represent one of the strongest ministries in our church.  Our teen director is a Bible College graduate who is on staff here and is dedicated to building the lives of young people throughout the community.  Through regular scheduled meetings and various weekly and seasonal activities, the youth of PBC are actively involved in a healthy balance of Biblical learning, fun, fellowship, and ministry to others.
 

Children’s Ministry:  

     Each Sunday morning, our children get to participate in their own classes. Bible lessons are taught in such a way that every child gets to participate and learn. All of our teachers are screened for the mutual protection of teacher and student and teach on a level that communicates the message of God’s word in a clear and practical way.  We are committed to teaching Biblical values that enhance their young lives in an active and fun way.
