“Christ is just like the human body—a body is a unit and has many parts; and all the parts of the body are one body, even though there are many.” (1 Corinthians 12:12).
Join us as we explore and celebrate what it means to Plug In and fully live our lives together for Christ, each other, and the world.
Friday Evening Focus: Let Go
1 Corinthians 12: 12-13
We are all one in Christ, even though we are often very different from each other. The thing that makes us one even though we are different is that God loves all of us and longs for us to belong to God and each other. What keeps us from fully plugging in?
Saturday Morning Focus: Doubts and All
1 Corinthians 12: 14-19
God is always reaching for us through the Spirit to plug us in to the body of Christ. Very often the thing that is keeping us from fully plugging in is our doubts. What would it look like for us to show up and be seen for who we are doubts and all?
Saturday Evening Focus: Plug In
1 Corinthians 12: 20-26
Jesus makes it clear that we are all needed and that he longs for us to fully take our place in the body of Christ, doubts and all. How will body of Christ move toward greater wholeness when each of us fully plugs in with all of our gifts?
Sunday Morning Focus: Go!
1 Corinthians 12: 27
God desires that the body of Christ is whole and that means everyone. How does the world need the body of Christ? As we go back home, how will the Spirit use us to help others plug in?
Based on the words of 1 Corinthians, The Pilgrimage Ministry aims to launch unity and diversity in the one body in Christ. Beginning with the 2017 weekend, a quadrennial theme embodying the words: “Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ” was lost.
- 2017: You are not alone, you are invited to a Place at the Table.
- 2018: You are not alone, Plug In to what is here.
- 2019: You are not alone, so let your Perceptions Shatter.
- 2020: You are not alone, you are Claimed.
The Worship Team of the Pilgrimage Ministry spends time as one body in Christ, for Christ, developing an inclusive message of love and invitation to be shared through servants in Christ, the Speakers at each of the sessions.
