Site Navigation

Here are some tips about how to find what you are looking for on this site.  If you want to add content either by commenting on an existing page or creating a new post you will have to Register.  In order to protect ourselves from “spammers” we have the site set so that anyone who registers will have to be approved before they can post.  Just to be ready to publish content, why not go ahead and register now.

Navigation Bars

Above and beneath the header you will notice two sets of tabs. The one above the header (you clicked the Site Navigation tab to get here) is for pages that are fairly static in that they will not change very often. They have information that we want to have easily available, especially for people who are new to the church and to this site.

The one below the header (Blogs, Events, Ministries…) is for linking to information that is constantly changing. When the pastor posts a sermon, it will be here. When the Christian Education Ministry posts the schedule for next month’s Adult Education classes, it will be here.

Some of the tabs also have sub-tabs below them. If you place the cursor over the tab it may have other tabs drop down below it. You can click on these to go directly to the sub-tab content.


At the right side of the page is a sidebar that has links as well. These change depending on which page you are on. If you are on one of the static pages, you will find a directory of pages within that section at the top of the sidebar.

You will also find a box that shows the next five events coming in the Pilgrim Calendar. If you want to know more about any of those events, just hover the cursor over the title and a box will open with a description. For even more information, click on the title and a separate page will open. There are links on those pages as well. If you want to see further into the future, click on the See all >> link at the bottom of the box.

Main Page

The Main Page (or Home Page) is the one which opens when you first come to the site and it is the one you will go to if you click on either Home at the upper left or on the title in the Header (Pilgrim UCC in St. Louis). This page has a gray box at the top of the content area which features the most recent post. Anytime someone enters a new post, it will show up here until someone else enters a post. Older posts are arrayed below in the order they were created.

Along the left side of this content area are links to posts in some featured categories. These are links to articles which the web committee thinks are the ones most people should be sure to read.

Searching for content

If there is something in particular you are looking for and you can’t find it you may want to try using the Search Box. This is the box in the header at the right side. Simply type in what you are looking for and hit enter. For example, if you are one of the Greeters but you can’t remember which month you signed up for, just enter greeter in the search box and press the enter key. Go ahead, try it.
