Ancient Words, Modern Meaning
Sermon Series on the Ten Commandments
The Ten Commandments are rich in wisdom and simple in language. They have lived in human minds and hearts for over three thousand years, as meaningful today as when Moses stepped down from Mt. Sinai. Join us as we rediscover these ancients texts in the context of our everyday lives. Series runs through Sunday June 27. 
Sign-up for 10:00 a.m. In-Person Worship

We continue 10:00 a.m. in-person worship this Sunday. Outdoor seating will also be available. We look forward to seeing many of you. We encourage those who are not comfortable worshipping in-person at this time to watch the livestream of the Worship Service on our website, our YouTube Channel, and Facebook page.

"Plymouth and the United Church of Christ" Talk
Sunday, June 27 Following Worship
Did you know that Plymouth isn't a "nondenominational" church? We're one of over 5,000 churches that make up the United Church of Christ (UCC). What is the UCC and what does it mean to be a part of it? Find out the answers to these questions, and the work the wider church is doing thanks to Plymouth's contributions to its mission, from our own Thaddaeus Elliot, a member of the national Board of Directors for the denomination. We will gather in-person in the Chapel following worship on Sunday, June 27. You can also join us via Zoom.
School Uniforms Drive with Chapman
The next school year will be very exciting as we return from the pandemic.

We will have many children at the Chapman Partnership for the Homeless Shelters who will be going to school in August. 

So-o-o, Barnes Circle and BOOM would like to provide new uniforms, including socks and underwear, for these kids. We hope to provide two sets per child (one to wear, one to wash.)

We need your support for this project as we can anticipate 200+ kids will be living at the shelters in August. Each outfit costs approximately $65 (The uniform store gives us a great deal and packages and labels the uniforms).

In the meantime, we will be collecting donations. For checks directed to Plymouth Church, please specify "Barnes Circle" in the memo line.

Ask your friends to help! 

NO AMOUNT IS TOO SMALL OR TOO BIG! 

Moira McGuinn & BOOM!

Update on Emergency Response Fund: 
Playgrounds Being Built in 
Bahamas and Honduras
The pandemic may have delayed our plans, but it did not stop Plymouth’s Cobb Family Emergency Response Fund from joining our partners in completing and now enhancing a playground and exercise park at New Vision Ministries, a church in Marsh Harbour, Bahamas.
 
Our intention has been to bring a sense of normalcy and hope to Marsh Harbour’s children and families, after Hurricane Dorian’s devastation on the Abaco Islands. See the signs below, both with the name of the playground and our partners on this project.

Neither has the pandemic stopped us from launching construction of another playground — this one in the village of El Naranjo in impoverished Honduras, hit last year by Hurricanes Iota and Eta...
