United Church Homes and Pilgrim Manor recently joined together at East Congregational United Church of Christ during a covenant service in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The service was part of a relatively new tradition at UCH to welcome new communities into the organization. 

During the ceremony, staff from UCH, Pilgrim Manor, the United Church of Christ and the churches that founded Pilgrim Manor wove together fabric that symbolized the hymn Blest Be the Tie That Binds and the tangible relationship between the two organizations that residents should expect daily.

IMG 6405“We believe that our organization is a family of communities and to bring new campuses into our family is kind of like a wedding. It has a spiritual significance — blending different histories, different traditions and different pathways of service,” said Rev. Kenneth Daniel, UCH president and CEO. “We want to bring them in, in a worshipful way, to celebrate our new relationship.”
