Pilgrim UMC Mission Statement 
We strive together to advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ through our messages, our actions, and our thoughts.

Missions & Outreach

We are out to change the world...


Faithful Ministry - The people of God, who are the church made visible in the world, must convince the world of the reality of the gospel or leave it unconvinced. There can be no evasion or delegation of this responsibility; the church is either faithful as a witnessing and serving community, or it loses its vitality and its impact on an unbelieving world. (2012 Book of Discipline, ¶ 130)

 Under Construction:  

Coming soon will be current information on the missionaries we support.

Shoebox Project...  April items are hair brushes, combs, and accessories (i.e. headbands, rubberbands, clips, etc.)

Lakeview Dock Goals…..Don’t forget to consider giving toward our $2,500 goal for a new dock at Lakeview UMC Church Camp. This mission project is in addition to our regular ministry budget that needs to be met each week. Ministry never goes on vacation!!!!

Pilgrim’s Hunger Box... will now be supporting The Basic Needs Center which opened recently in the first block of downtown St. Johns. Pastor Russ and Adele McCoy are running the center with the help of an advisory board consisting of six people. The center is a volunteer based center and will take donations of food and clothing anytime. For those in need, the center is open Mon. thru Friday from 9am—4pm and Thursday from 6-7:30pm. They are open on Saturday by appointment. Place your items in the white Food Collection Box in the church entrance.

Service Opportunity… Lansing's Women and Children Shelter has given PUMC a permanent serving slot; the second Monday of every month. What does this mean? A maximum of 6 PUMC volunteers are needed to serve the Women and Children of Lansing from 5:30pm to 8pm. If a Sunday School class or Bible Study wants to take a Monday, it would be a great way to serve as a small group team. The most exciting part-you do not need any special skills to serve! Just bring your PUMC smile and willingness to serve and you are all set.

Questions?  Contact Mitch Hallenbeck.  Look for the sign-up sheet on the Mission bulletin board.

 Mission Need List... Please help the Mens and Womens and Childrens Shelters of Lansing meet the needs of the community. The number one need is cough drops followed closely by NEW underwear for men and women and white socks for men. There is also a need for Pull-ups (all sizes), shaving cream, razors, lotion, new blankets, canned fruit, canned vegetables (#10 cans preferred), ground beef, tomato sauce or diced tomatoes, elbow macaroni, wide noodles and rice. There is a yellow can in the closet where you can deposit your donations. I will collect and deliver the items to the Missions on a weekly basis.
