IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT Regarding The Pilgrim:
by Webmaster on 7/3/14
For decades now, the Pilgrims have enjoyed our conference periodical, The Pilgrim. It experienced many years of interest among the Pilgrim family, but with the starting of the pilgrim website, as well as the rise of Facebook, Twitter, etc., we have found that instead of individuals getting Pilgrim news and items of interest thru the magazine, they basically got it online, and as a result, it has hurt subscriptions to the point that it is no longer cost effective enough to publish the magazine.
During Pilgrim Family Camp a few days ago, the Conference Council voted to discontinue the magazine, effective immediately. In doing so, I have been asked to publish an online newsletter that will be posted on the Pilgrim website, and also sent to the pastors of our pilgrim churches so that they can print and distribute them to their people. Be looking for the 1st issue later this month!
I would also like to publicly thank Sis. Fayerene Walden for her 21 years of faithful service to our people as editor of The Pilgrim! She has worked many very long hours getting it ready for print, and for the last few years, Chris Dewhurst has also assisted her in this effort.
The decision to discontinue The Pilgrim (as we know it) was a difficult one, but also a very necessary one. We trust you will enjoy what is to come! The NEW publication will be called Pilgrim News & Notes, and will be published bi-monthly. We may consider doing it monthly if the interest level merits it.
