Pilgrim Ladies Guild FAQ’s

Q. What is Ladies Guild?

The organization has a threefold purpose.

  • To serve as an aid to the church.
  • To serve as an aid to the pastors.
  • To promote Christian fellowship and service.

Q. How do I become a member of Ladies Guild?

When joining Pilgrim’s Faith Family, all ladies are automatically members of the Guild. There are no dues or assessments. We encourage all Pilgrim women who are interested in Christian service and fellowship to invite other Pilgrims, and friends outside our Faith Family, to attend and share in our fellowship.

Q. Who can I call if I have questions or want to get involved?

Feel free to call the Church office (877-2444). The key to keeping our Guild successful is volunteering to serve the Lord with a willing and happy heart. Ladies Guild offers many opportunities for service and fellowship.

Q. What is the “MISSION BOX” I have heard about?

Ps. 103:21 “Praise the Lord, all his heavenly hosts, you his servants who do his will.”
Each lady in our congregation is invited to have and use a small cardboard box we call the “Mission Box”. Its like a small bank for any extra money you want to contribute for mission work.

These boxes are on Guild table in the Narthex. You may leave your box in the basket and pick up another. As the story in the Scripture tells about the “widow’s mite,” we too find that it is not how much we give but the attitude of our heart when we offer our “mite.”
