BENEFITING: Pilgrim Faith United Church of Christ
ORGANIZER: Pilgrim Faith United Church of Christ
EVENT DATE: Aug 06, 2016
The front steps at Pilgrim Faith were home to one of the happiest moment of my life. My wife Amy and I were married at Pilgrim Faith, and we were introduced as newlyweds for the very first time as we exited the church down the front steps through all of our family and friends celebrating. It was a really special moment that would not be possible with the current state of the front steps.
Pilgrim Faith United Church of Christ has given a “step up” to the Oak Lawn community for years, but now it needs your help: The front steps at Pilgrim Faith are in total disrepair and have been closed until further notice.
We’re raising money to repair our church’s 61-year-old steps and would appreciate your help.
Pilgrim Faith serves as a home not only to its Sunday parishioners, but also to Food Pantry services for those in need, PADS (shelter, food and medical services for the homeless), Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and local Boy Scouts of America troop meetings, and it has hosted many plays and improv shows in the past.
It has done a lot of good, but needs some help in maintaining its building, to continue serving those in need. Pilgrim Faith United Church of Christ is hoping that you would consider making a donation to Step Up for Pilgrim Faith, to help replace its front steps so that many generations to come may enjoy a church that is open to its community.
