Pilgrim Congregational Church is a member of the United Church of Christ, a worldwide denomination of more than one million members. Rooted in the Congregational tradition, Pilgrim stresses the freedom of each person to hear God speak and to see God acting in his or her life. As people of faith, we stand in solidarity with the whole of creation, praying and working for justice and peace. We are an Open and Affirming congregation, gladly welcoming all—without exception—just as Jesus did. For more information, call (708) 848-5860 or visit www.pilgrimoakpark.org.
This year we are co-sponsoring an online gathering for the Longest Night, created and led by The Many. Also known as "Blue Christmas", a Longest Night Gathering is a safe and sacred space to mourn the losses and griefs of the year, to let tears flow for the hurting places in our lives, as well as for our country and our world and to rekindle hope. This online gathering is created by the Plural Guild and will include time for quiet reflection, spoken word, both new and familiar Christmas music, as well as times for sharing prayers and laments with each other in the comments.

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: … and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
