Children & Youth Offerings

Pilgrim Church School is deeply rooted in the greater mission of Pilgrim Church UCC. We provide a welcoming home for children, parents, and volunteers looking to continue their faith journey. Striving to put faith in action, we work hard to explain faith through hands-on learning and mission opportunities for all ages. As our world and community are constantly evolving, Pilgrim Church School is always exploring new and innovative ways to truly teach God’s word.


For infants and children through age three, we offer nursery care with our Nursery Care Provider. The nursery is available fifteen minutes before the service each week, and silent pagers are given to parents so they may be notified if their child is in need.


Pilgrim offers weekly classes September to June for children and youth of all ages. Typical classes feature prayer time, a brief scripture reading, discussion time, and an activity. All classes are tailored to the developmental level and interests of the children, and often involve crafts, games, music making, service projects, and more!


Confirmation class is offered to all teen Pilgrims who are interested in further exploring and affirming their faith, and becoming full members of the church. The program is led by the Pastor and Youth and Christian Education Director. We follow the UCC Confirmation Curriculum, Affirming Faith, and meet at least twice a month to learn and grow together, building strong relationships as we experience what it means to be Christians in community.


For Pilgrim teens & their friends, we offer a monthly meeting time to bond in fellowship outside of worship. Pilgrim Youth Group provides a safe space for teens to bond, form long-lasting relationships with like-minded individuals, and of course, have some fun! Recent youth group events have included paint nights, game nights, s’mores in the pumpkin patch, a class with a local magician, and so much more!


Adult volunteers are vital to the life and ministry of the Church School. There are also many ways you can help!
