April 2016 Connecting Report

In March Pilgrim applied for a grant from the Shasta Regional Community Foundation, “The McConnel Fund.” The grant awards funds for Arts and Culture and Community Vitality among other purposes. We hope to use these funds to improve the building for community events.adopt-a-block

If you’ve taken a walk around downtown Redding lately, you may have noticed the signs posted on Shasta St. and Tehama St. for the city’s Adopt-a-Block program. For the past few months, Pilgrims have been picking up trash on the block bordered by California St., Shasta St., Oregon St., and Tehama St.

Be sure to join us for “A Tribute to John Denver” performed by John Hoover and the Mighty Quinns on April 9. This is a fundraiser sponsored by the church. Proceeds will benefit organizations such as People of Progress, Planned Parenthood, Redding Resource Center, NVCSS Teen Services, Hope Van Outreach, Partners Helping Families, Girls Inc., Faith Works, One Safe Place and Southeast Asian Christian Ministries. A $15 suggested donation will be accepted at the door.
