Who We Are

A congregation of Christians serving Northwest Spokane

Welcome! Wherever you are in life’s journey, we invite you to join us as we make progress toward a more mature understanding of God, a more confident belief in His grace, and a more meaningful life of joyful, practical, loving service.
Pilgrim is a Christian congregation serving our community from a facility on Northwest Boulevard in Spokane. We are affiliated with the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, a church body founded 160 years ago by immigrants to Missouri, among other places, which now has nearly 2.5 million members in every state from every ethnic group and sister churches worldwide. Our name reflects a belief that God has given our lives a purpose and a destination.
Lutheran is a Christian branch that sprouted in the 1500s when Martin Luther, a German scholar, tried to reform the Roman Catholic Church but got kicked out instead! We are conservative, in that we base our beliefs solely on the Bible as God’s authoritative message, but liberal in trying to live out our faith through fearless love for all people. We believe that the heart of Christianity is the good news of what God has done for us through Jesus Christ, and we are committed to sharing that news with others while living in the joy and freedom that it brings.
Church, we believe, is not a building, institution, or program, but a group of people seeking to know and serve God together. Whether gathered as a large group for worship or as small groups for support, we act as extended family to help each other grow in faith. We hope that you will check out what we do online then come find out who we are in person!

What to Expect

What are services like?
We have a mix of worship styles at our 9:00am worship service each week. Many of those who worship with us find it refreshing to experience worship in a different style week to week. Our services can range from Classical Liturgy to Contemporary. We celebrate communion on the second and fourth Sundays of the month. Classical Liturgy best describes some of our Sunday morning worship services. We use a variety of formal settings from the Lutheran Service Book with hymns accompanied by the organ or piano. If you grew up in a traditional Lutheran, Roman Catholic, Episcopal, or other liturgical church, you will probably feel most comfortable at this service. Contemporary best describes some of our other services. Video projection makes it easy to follow an order of worship written to reflect the theme of the day and including current praise songs. If you grew up in a Baptist, Evangelical, or Pentecostal church, you might be most comfortable at this service. Special Services are held on major holidays, including Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. On Good Friday this past year the service was largely comprised of a dramatic musical called “More Than Just a Man.” Plans are in the works for another meaningful musical production this Christmas, and you are invited to be part of it!

What is the community like?
Most of our participants are from the Northwest Spokane and Nine Mile areas, though we have people who travel from many other neighborhoods and some surrounding towns to participate. We are a mix of ages and pretty equally spilt between male and female, families and singles, with some young, new Christians and some older, life long believers. Our location serves both urban and suburban neighborhoods, so we are involved in many local charitable agencies but also focused on child, youth, and adult discipleship ministries. The congregation tries to be friendly without being pushy, caring without being nosey!

What if I'm not a Christian?
We love to welcome those who are not a Christian! A great place to start learning about what we believe would be one of our pastor's Bible studies on Sunday mornings at 10:15am . Since these are very friendly, casual settings in which questions and sharing are encouraged. our pastor would also be glad to meet with you personally during the week to hear your story and encourage you.
