New Mission Statement
Letter from Moderator, Celeste Miller
Dear People of Plymouth,
 
In August 2019, our Plymouth Church Council began discussing the idea of replacing the existing Mission Statement from 1992. Today, I am so pleased to introduce Plymouth’s new Mission Statement, approved by your Church Council.

We are proud to announce our new Mission Statement.

With welcoming hearts,

Plymouth seeks to share the transforming love of Christ
through

Faith-filled worship, prayer, and study

Hope-filled service and outreach

Love-filled fellowship

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
