Ministry Description St. Petersburg is “The Sunshine City” and Pilgrim wishes to be that sunny beacon in the neighborhood. Pilgrim UCC was established in1955. Pilgrim has no debt, we own the buildings on our campus, taking up almost an entire city block. Pilgrim has undergone considerable renovations to her buildings and grounds. Our Endowment Fund is valued at over $100,000 and Bellora Scholarship fund is valued at over $1 million. We are suffering a decrease in membership due to an aging population and pandemic; however, our pledges are strong. We currently receive income from four tenants; Risen City Church; Leap of Faith Preschool; and two weekly AA groups. We believe that Pilgrim offers a unique opportunity for growth and enrichment. We honor our traditions, and wish to embrace new ideas to better meet the needs of all people, especially millennials, with St. Pete College just 4 blocks away. We seek a part-time minister who can offer traditional pastoral care as well as infuse new life, new vision, and diversity to our congregation, to revitalize our community and membership. We have a Facebook page and a church website. We hope to install the means to host live streaming events and record sermons for those who cannot attend worship. Pastoral candidates having knowledge of media skills would be great, as well as clear administrative skills to communicate worship needs to the various offices and personnel. Women’s Fellowship meet regularly; they are a powerhouse for charitable outreach. We are monthly contributors to St. Pete Free Clinic and Food Pantry. Our seasonal gifts for the community are generous considering the size of our congregation. Most all our scheduled events have been advertised and open to the public. We are traditional yet wish to be visionary. We are minutes away from beaches, parks, sports, schools, restaurants, museums and more. Our city is vibrant and diverse and we wish to be also. We are proud to call St. Petersburg our home and Pilgrim our church.
