Let's start nurturing our spiritual lives with intention. 

Welcome to our Fall Christian Nurture Program at Pilgrim!

Look for more information about children's programs, adult Sunday School, Bible Study returning and more in upcoming newsletters. It's more important than ever to take care of our spirits, to grow in curiosity and openness. 

Be sure to join us for Sunday sermon discussions after church (don't worry, if you need to leave the zoom at noon that's totally fine but if you can stay let's talk about the sermon and the scripture and how the message might impact our week).

See you on ZOOM!


November 7th-In addition to our Sunday morning 11am zoom, we will be celebrating All Saints with in-person worship at 5pm Sunday afternoon at the church.  Please let us know if you would like a candle lit for a loved one who has passed on.

School Supply Drive for Orchard Knob Elementary School


Even though it is currently impossible to volunteer at OKES due to the pandemic, Pilgrims have been extremely generous with donations of classroom and cleaning supplies. Thus far nine boxes of supplies have been delivered to the school. Thank you to everyone for the many contributions. You all are so amazing!

For a number of years now, Pilgrim Church has also given the OKES staff goodie bags to mark American Education Week. This year, the week is November 15-19. There are 86 staff members at the school (including administrators, teachers, aides, cafeteria personnel, and custodial staff). All these individuals work hard to provide the best education possible for the students at the school. So, it is very nice to honor them with a small token of our appreciation.

If possible, Pilgrims are asked to donate some of the following items for the goodie bags: Post-its, highlighters, bookmarks, dry erase markers, binder clips, scotch tape, magnets, picture frames, pencil erasers, notepads, stickers, small Christmas ornaments, etc., -- items that would nicely fit into a small gift bag. Not every one of 86 bags will contain exactly the same items, but each bag will be comparable in its contents. So even if you are only able to give one or two things, all together we will be able to provide some wonderful items for the bags.

Please put your donations in the Slater Room no later than Monday, November 8, in the box marked for OKES. Contact the church office, 698-5682, if you wish to leave the school supplies at the church. If you don't want to shop, you can mail a check to the church at 400 Glenwood Dr., Chattanooga, TN 37404 and payable to Pilgrim Church, note on your check for OKES. Thanks so much!





What a wonderful send-off for a leader, teacher, mentor,

friend and comforter to us all!  

Pilgrims came out in force last Sunday afternoon to hear Kate preach and honor Kate and Terry as they set off

on their new adventure to Montana. Thanks to everyone who helped make the evening a success--Kathy and

Margha did a wonderful job with the reception; Christine had a fun activity for the kids; Patrick and Jim led

us in wonderful music; and many other Pilgrims helped provide transportation so folks could attend. 

Bon Voyage Kate and Terry-you will be missed!




Dale put his considerable photography talents to work capturing the spirit of Mary's
