Childcare is Available!

If you're new to Plymouth or just didn't know or didn't remember, we offer child care every Sunday for children through 2nd grade or older based on availability and need! Childcare providers are available in first floor clasrooms beginning at 8:30 am until Toddler/PreK church school starts at 10 am, and 12:15 pm to 1:30 pm. Child care may also be arranged for special Plymouth events on other days/evenings. Event organizers, help support this ministry by letting Jamie Shilling know you need childcare and then confirm the need before the event so Jamie can extend a welcome to parents! Thank you!

Training for Speaking in Worship

We have been so blessed with so many of our young people leading us in parts of our Sunday morning worship. In an effort to help kids feel more comfortable in front of the church and at the microphone, David McGee, Howard Boyd and I will be leading another training after worship on December 8. Kids will be escorted by their teachers from church school to Hildebrand Hall, where they will practice speaking at the microphone. Kids can be picked up from there at 12:45.
