Labor Day weekend is sometimes a “low” Sunday in terms of church attendance, but Pilgrim is expecting guests for this service. Chester Park United Methodist Church and United Baptist Christian Church will worship with Pilgrim in Pilgrim’s sanctuary. The service is at Pilgrim’s regular time, 10:00 a.m. The service includes the Sacrament of Holy Communion. Pilgrim practices open communion, meaning that everyone is invited to participate, regardless of age or church affiliation. The sanctuary is handicap accessible and hearing aids are available. Child care is available for children up through 2nd grade. The three congregation worshipped together Memorial Day weekend and the Sunday prior to the 4th of July.

July 26 Turkeys vs. Our Savior
This one was a mismatch from the start. We put up 13 runs in two innings and the ump asks that we only bat around our order once and then let them bat (that means that regardless of how many outs we had, we could only send 8 batters to the plate per inning). We agree with the ump as this one has the potential to turn into a football score. John Fochs loses his hat rounding 2nd, the ump calls time out so John can dust off his hat–the comment from the other team was “Its not what you do, its how you look”. Some old geezer from Our Savior finally connects with one for a home run and they score some runs. We didn’t take our ups the last inning—we just let them 6 outs instead of 3. Turkeys rough ‘em up 19-6.
