General Announcements
Announcing Candidate for Associate Pastor
The Search Task Force and Executive Council have unanimously voted to recommend the Rev. Sara Ofner-Seals as the candidate to be our next Associate Pastor. There will be a congregational meeting to vote on her on Sunday, June 27. A letter was sent out last week to that effect, which if you have not yet received it, should be arriving soon.

Rev. Sara will be visiting with us June 25-27 for a candidating weekend, with chances to meet her on Friday and Saturday in advance of Sunday worship. She will lead us in worship on the 27th, with the congregational meeting following immediately after. A brochure is in the works with more details about Rev. Sara. Please mark your calendars to be present to meet her and vote to approve her candidacy to be Plymouth’s next Associate Pastor on Sunday, June 27.
A Celebration of Life: Dan Hamblin
There will be a memorial service for Dan Hamblin on Saturday, June 26 in the sanctuary.
Visitation with family will be at 10:00 am in the Folsom Room, with the service beginning at 11:00 am.
Join Us For the Jubilee
E&M is so happy to officially welcome First Congregational UCC, Angola into our RIP Medical Debt campaign! Their Missions Team has voted, and we’ve got their logo up on the fundraiser site, so you know it’s for real. Great things happen when we work with our neighbors to live in God’s realm on earth as it is in heaven.

In the expectation that the blessing of our abundance can do good work in the world by liberating those shackled with unpayable debts, we offer huge thanks to those who have donated already, and we invite you to consider a contribution. Every dollar you donate will be used to purchase one hundred dollars in medical debt ($1 = $100)! Please give what you can and rejoice as it multiplies one hundred times. You have the power to be the trumpet of liberty, bringing the good message to your neighbors that they are free, their debt forgiven.

The fundraising campaign will run through September 26 and our fundraising goal is $20,000 – or $2,000,000 in medical debt relief – but if we end up raising more than that it will be a joy. Please feel free to share the link with your friends and family – the more the merrier! Click the button below to visit our fundraising campaign page. There is also a link on our “Contribute” page at plymouthfw.org. Scroll down and click on “Campaign." Information can also be found on Facebook. Thank you!
Peace & Justice Survey
The Peace and Justice Committee invites you to take a simple survey to help us better understand the justice activities of members and how to help connect members with similar commitments. It takes only a couple minutes to do. Thank you!
COVID-19 Vaccination Eligibility
The state of Indiana has opened COVID-19 vaccination eligibility to anyone 12 and older. You can click the button below to schedule an appointment. If you have difficulty registering online, you can dial 211 from any phone for assistance.
A Note from the Office
In order for the office to better serve you, please submit a separate check for each donation made whether it be for pledges, special offerings or any other donation. Checks should be made payable to Plymouth Church. Thank you!
Visiting Plymouth
If you have a need to visit the office, we’d love to see you. Remember to schedule an appointment at least 24 hours in advance. No one is at the front desk, so please arrive on time so a staff member is available to greet you and unlock the door. Please wait at the Berry Street entrance and be prepared to sanitize, sign-in, and wear a mask. Please contact Tina Puitz at tmp@plymouthfw.org to make an appointment. Thank you.
