Galatians 6:2-5 Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. But let each one test his own work, and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbor. For each will have to bear his own load.
 
Dear Pilgrim Family,
Christ has risen!!! He has risen indeed Alleluia!!!  We pray this message finds you and yours doing well and staying safe and growing in faith.  We are writing to you to inform you of how we are moving forward in the weeks to come.  Over the past weekend, we have had meetings with the Board of Elders, the Trustees, and the Church Council to attempt to come up with a plan that will allow people to return to the services of God’s House and receive His gifts in the safest environment possible.
This week May 18th -23rd we will continue to have morning Matins services each day and a 4 PM service (Evening Prayer) this Thursday.  On Sunday, May 24th we will have the 8 AM and 10:30 AM services and on Thursday, May 27th we will have our 7 PM service restored.  We are asking those who do attend to allow a pew empty between them and the person ahead of them.  If you desire masks and gloves, please bring your own as we cannot provide them for everyone.  We will be offering the Lord’s Supper at the Altar but will only be taking five people at a time to allow for spacing.  While the Pastors will not mask and glove for the worship services or the distribution of the Lord’s Supper during the worship service, we will glove and mask to distribute the Lord’s Supper after the services for those who are uncomfortable receiving the Lord’s gift without these added measures.  We are also adding back a few of our Bible Classes, Wednesday nights 6:30 PM, and Sundays at 12:30 PM.  We are also reaching out to the Thursday morning Bible Class to determine when to start it again.  
We also know that many do not feel safe at this time returning to public services, perhaps not until a vaccine has been made.  We will indeed miss seeing you in person, but know our prayers are with you even as we believe your prayers are with us, and we pray you will continue to join us online for the services.  This is certainly a difficult time for all of us as we strive to use our God-given wisdom to make the choice that is best for each person, family, and Pilgrim.  Please know your pastors are willing to come and bring the Lord’s Supper to those who desire and are comfortable with our coming.  Knowing that not everyone will be comfortable with this option either please know we do not want your conscience to be burdened, this is all part of bearing with one another in love. 
For our safety, we have sanitized the pews, the doors, the Altar rail, and the handrails throughout the building.  We have removed the hymnals and Bibles from the pews and will make them available from a cart in the back of the church.  We ask that you leave them in the pew after the service so we can sanitize them between services.  We will not pass the collection plates but will instead have them on a table in the back of the sanctuary and the offering (mailed and delivered in person) will be brought forward by the ushers during the offertory and placed on the credence table on the right of the Altar. We are also in the process of purchasing from the district and hope to have in two weeks hand sanitizing stations that will be posted at the entrances for your convenience. 
At present, our counters teams have not been meeting to count, but we are asking if you are willing to assist with counting please contact the office and we will strive to make a new schedule.   
As we strive to seek to do everything safely and in good order, know we value your input, so some of these practices may change a few times before we return to normal.  We thank you again for your continued prayers and support.  Let us all continue to bear with one another in love as we move forward.

WORSHIP


At Pilgrim, we highly value the traditional approach to worship. Our services are structured around the Lutheran Service Book (LSB). We use Divine Service Settings One, Three, and Four for worship. However, we do use some of the other services found in the LSB on occasion. In addition to the traditional worship style that our church offers, our members receive the Sacrament of the Altar on a weekly basis.

In case you are interested in joining us for worship, our weekly scheduled services are listed below. 

Worship Services:
Thursday Night- 7:00 pm
Sunday Morning - 8:00 am & 10:30 am 

We are located at 462 Meadowbrook Drive, West Bend, WI 53090. (Click on our address to view our location on Google Maps.)
