Our Team

Pilgrim’s Social Justice Coordinating Team oversees a wide variety of activities in which many of our friends and members are engaged.  We expand our ministry by helping those in need here in Bozeman as well as in Montana.  Several of our activities also support national and international efforts to bring aid and comfort to millions.  The current Social Justice team members include:
Mary Ann Tower (Chair),  Rebecca Adams, Mary Noll, Susan Byorth, Sara Bisterfeld, Dana Miquelle, Phyllis Bock, Susan Reisch and Elise Strong. We thank Kerry Williams and Karen Savage for their years of service and dedication to Social Justice and the Pilgrim team.
