In this digital age,media images and recordings help share the love, messages, and beliefs of Pilgrimage United Church of Christ.  Media, in it’s wide variety of formats, enhances the information we are able to provide to our members and visitors and allows us to expand the reach of our ministry. 


The church often takes pictures and videos of events including, but not limited to, baptisms, choir performances, instrumental performances, worship services, missions trips, Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, fellowship events, and community outreach projects.  The media (photograph, video, and/or audio) obtained during these events is used to document, promote, and celebrate our ministry.  Therefore, participation in church activities implies permission for publication in any media recorded (print or digital), unless a Media Opt Out  Form has been submitted to the church office.  


The type of media obtained determines where and how it can be used.

  • Print media includes church newsletters, brochures, newspapers, magazines, flyers, bulletin boards, etc.  

  • Online media includes online church newsletters, website, Facebook page and groups, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube channel, and Google Groups.
