Pilgrim Christian Church is an inclusive and Loving Christian community that gathers just off the Square in Chardon, Ohio. We gather to worship, learn, and serve our beloved community and beyond. Together, we strive to be a congregation that follows the Way of Christ because that is where we discover who God is calling us to be - more Gracious, more Compassionate, and more Faithful.
Pilgrim was created in 1950 when two congregations merged as one. The First Congregational Church and the Christian Church came together to form the Pilgrim Christian Church.
Our denominational roots are in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the United Church of Christ. Both denominations emphasize the unity of the Church, encourage each person to think for themselves, and have a passion to serve all of our brothers and sisters in ways that lead to wholeness, justice, and Peace. This DNA allows us to place the central focus on Love of God and Love for one another and the World.
Everyone is welcome to join us in the journey of discipleship that leads to transformation of ourselves and our world. Whether you're seeking sanctuary, community, or opportunities to learn and serve; whether you're one with all of the answers or nothing but questions; whether you've done the whole Church thing or never before, you are more than welcome in this community of Christ.
