Welcome to the website of Pilgrim Lutheran Church (LCMS), Kilgore, Texas! We are glad that you are here, and we invite you to browse the site, make use of the resources that are here, and contact us if we can be of service to you in any way.

  • About — including what we believe, our pastor, and church shopping
  • Worship — including the use of liturgy and hymns, sermons, communion
  • Classes & Groups — including Bible studies, Sunday School, boards
  • News — including newsletters, calendars, pastor’s newspaper columns
  • Links — potentially useful websites from around the world and here at home

While we live in an increasingly virtual, electronic world, we always remember that God took on human flesh in the person of Jesus Christ in order to save us from our sins. While this website serves an important purpose, nothing takes the place of being in God’s house to hear and otherwise receive God’s gift of forgiveness in person. You are not only welcome here online, but you are also always welcome anytime onsite. I look forward to greeting you in person then!

Pastor Jayson S. Galler
