We are very excited to announce that we will resume 10 a.m. in-person worship on Sunday, October 25. We look forward to seeing many of you. We encourage those who are not comfortable being inside at this time to continue watching our virtual broadcast at 10 a.m. or later on our website, YouTube Channel, and Facebook page. Registration and all protocols laid out in previous emails will still be required for 10 a.m. in-person worship. With God's grace, we are finding our way through difficult times so we can celebrate the Lord together. Sign up details coming next week.

Phase 1 of our Re-Gathering will come to an end with the final weekly 30-minute Service of Word and Song this Sunday, October 18, at 2 p.m. The Registration link is below. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED TO ATTEND. Please note that this will not replace our virtual worship service which will continue to air on our website and other various platforms every Sunday at 10 a.m. and after.

Plymouth Hurricane Helpers
In those hot days after a storm, seeing a friendly face can make all the difference. Checking in on one another can make a huge difference to everyone's morale.
 
This is true for families with children as well as for folks who, regardless of their age, live alone. Should any of us sustain severe damage to our homes or perhaps even need assistance, it is a comfort to know that after a storm, a Plymouth Hurricane Helper might be coming by to check on us or help us call for assistance. 
 
None of us are meant to be first responders, FEMA, or emergency service providers. What we can be is a friendly face as well as a source of mutual aid and encouragement.
 
If you would like to serve as a Hurricane Helper or have questions feel free to contact Pastor Moira.
A Prayer For Our Time
Sisters and brothers of Plymouth, let us pray,
 
Almighty God,
You breathe life into your creation and call it good.
 
You create each of us in your image.. read more
