Pilgrim Lutheran Church has sometimes been referred to as the church with the three white crosses on the front.  There are 3 churches between the intersection at Upper Sherman Avenue and Mohawk Road East and we are the last church on the right hand side when heading south on Upper Sherman Avenue. 

Please join us for worship on a Sunday morning when visiting Hamilton .... or .... consider making Pilgrim Lutheran Church your home if you are looking for a church to attend.
