If you're looking for the best in music for Advent and Christmas, click on the button below to check out the Central Florida Master Choir and the New Moon String Ensemble. The December concerts feature the classic "Gloria" by Vivaldi and the world debut of McSwain's setting of "Go Tell It on the Mountain."
Whoever you are, whatever you've done, whatever's happened to you, wherever you're from, wherever you've been--you are welcome here. This is a place and a people of peace and sanctuary--an embassy of Heaven. If you have a prayer need, contact our Prayer Chain ministry, firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are an ecumenically-oriented church living and working in continuity with the mainstream traditions of the denominations (Evangelical & Reformed and the Congregational Christian Churches) which formed the United Church of Christ. Within the UCC we are part of the Western Region of the Florida Conference.
We are in Full Communion with:
We are in Ecumenical Partnership with The United Church of Canada, The Episcopal Church USA, The United Methodist Church, The Alliance of Baptists, some American Baptist Churches in the USA, and other ecumenical partners around the world (click "Churches Uniting in Christ" and "Other UCC Links" under "Our Relationships" above). If you are a member of any of these traditions, please think of Pilgrims' as your "home" in central Florida, whether you are here year-round or for a shorter time.
We worship in an Igloo. Whatever you might think of as "typical"---you won't find it here! Members of our congregation come from 30 different denominational backgrounds. Our worship is "relaxed formal" with bursts of rowdiness. Our fellowship is warm, sincere, embracing, and (if you've ever had really great food at a church dinner) filling. If a progressive, faithful church is in your future, we think you've found it. Contribute to our diversity!
NOTE: The UNITED CHURCH of Christ (UCC) and the Church of Christ (CoC) are two Protestant Christian denominations with similar names but extremely different theologies and ideas on how to "do church." They are in NO way related, except for being Christian.
