South Florida Music: Children Class Offerings
We are excited to welcome South Florida Music who will be providing classes on Wednesdays and Saturdays for children birth through 8 years of age. Knowing that researchers have identified the first years of life as the time in which an individual learns at the most rapid rate, exposure to developmentally appropriate music education in this time period may have the greatest impact on future musical achievement, by stimulating neurological development and training the young mind how to discriminate sounds and organize musical thoughts. Join Dr. Joy Galliford, internationally known early childhood music specialist, for a time of learning, enjoyment and fun beginning in September.
Book Club Meets Every Third Saturday
at 10:15 a.m. over Zoom
Are you looking to join a book group? Look no more! PlymouthChurch's book group meets over Zoom every third Saturday of the month at 10:30 a.m. If you are interested in joining the group, or you have any questions, please reach out to Wanda Bee or join the Zoom link.
Got (Have?) Questions? Let's Talk...
Whoever you are or wherever you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here. And so are your questions! Whatever your questions, we want to hear from you. Your questions will help us plan for opportunities to come together in person, virtually or a combination of virtual and in-person to engage in conversations to nurture our faith. Look for the wooden box in the rear of the sanctuary or in the cloister garden to place your questions.  Looking forward to conversing. Blessings! 
Plymouth Prayer Partners
Would you like to receive a prayer anytime? We offer the opportunity to request and receive confidential prayer through our Plymouth Prayer Partners Ministry. To request prayer, email at any time prayers@plymouthmiami.org. The members of this Ministry will pray for you.
