The most significant worship experience of our lives
"My wife, Carolyn, and I attended the first Michigan Pilgramiage. It was, without question, the most significant worship experience of our lives. It reminded us of, and reinforced, our faith in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior in a very meaningful manner."

To me about the weekend was about community. I worked and met some incredible people with incredible stories of God's grace and love.

I could focus on a deeper relationship....
Because I was able to leave my daily life with all its stresses, I could focus on a deeper relationship with Jesus through the loving embrace of a community of believers.
Gave me an opportunity to listen to God
"Attending a Pilgrimage weekend gave me an opportunity to listen to God; an opportunity to have an open heart and mind. It was inspiring to have God reveal to me where He had been guiding me and where He planned for us (He and I) to go in the future. If you are going to live a purpose driven life, you better know what the purpose is."

It started me...
It started me keeping a "gratitude journal" so that I am focused on all God's blessings in my life---rather than on problems.
But then an amazing thing happens...
To me it was a wonderful opportunity to serve. You completely become the hands, feet, and heart of Christ. You give and serve freely - expecting nothing in return. But then an amazing thing happens - through this experience it is YOU who are blessed! OUR GOD IS AN AWESOME GOD!
I stopped being a Sunday only Christian.
