Pilgrim Baptist Church closed for all Sunday Services on April 15, 2018

Based upon the weather reports regarding Snowstorm Xanto, the temporary closing of MSP Airport, blizzard conditions, and that we are beyond the contract season for church snow removal, I think it best to close Pilgrim Baptist Church tomorrow for Sunday Morning and the Afternoon Worship Services for the Annual Ushers’ Day to protect all who might experience harm or danger in route to worship.

We may not have updated information for all, so please pass it on to our church family.

On December 16th, Pilgrim Baptist Church is taking a time travel back to the town of Bethlehem.  Join us, starting at 1pm, as we learn about a special night in the city where Christ was born.

Begin your journey by visiting the town photographer, and get a holiday portrait with your family! Then begin exploring the Bethlehem Marketplace. Groups will visit with the craftsmen of Bethlehem including:

Pottery Shed – Shape a piece of clay with the town potter

Carpentry Booth – Learn about ancient carpentry – the profession of Joseph and Jesus!

Town Bakery – In Hebrew Bethlehem means “Bread House”. See how loaves are made by the baker.

Hebrew Scribes Tent – Learn how to write in ancient Hebrew with the town scribes.

After touring through the city Marketplace, all groups will assemble together in the sanctuary to hear what happened one special night when Christ was born to Joseph and Mary in a manger.
