Pajama Story Time
Sharing your faith with your children is the most important thing you can do to help them grow in faith. You can start the conversation by reading Bible stories with your children. You and your children are invited to join Andrea Burt for four consecutive Wednesday evenings beginning November 4 from 7:00 to 7:30 p.m. on Zoom. Mrs. Burt will do a dramatic reading of beloved Bible stories from a compilation of biblical stories as told by Archbishop Desmond Tutu's book, “Children of God Storybook Bible.

Call for Nominations to Serve in Joy!
Dear Plymouth Church Members,

Despite the challenges of 2020, our beloved Church’s work is thriving. Through our boards and committees, Plymouth continues working hard on the three pillars of our mission – worship, outreach, and fellowship. We would like to invite you to express your interest in being involved in some of these activities by serving a term beginning in January 2021 - and also your ideas of others who you recommend as strong candidates to serve. 

Through the link at the bottom of the page, you will find a document with the description of the boards and committees, as well as the expected time commitment. At this time, most meetings are being held via video conference.

If you would like to be considered to serve, or would like to recommend someone to serve,  please send an email to the following address by November 9th stating the boards and/or committees of interest. The Nominating Committee will consider all expressions of interest from across the congregation. After receiving your email, we will be in contact with you.

In faithful service to God and our beloved Church,

The Nominating Committee
