FOCUS with Amy Neer

Dear Parents,

Beginning Nov 4, Amy Neer will be leading a chime choir during our FOCUS time! She is inviting children in grades 3-5 to learn come music and share it in worship on December 16th.

We will have some opportunities for younger kids as well, in late November and early December with Jamie Shilling!

Come and join the fun!



Music for FOCUS

For those who have been participating in the FOCUS program this month, you will recognize the songs in a couple of youtube videos I've posted here for you to sing along to at home. We've been singing some worship and praise songs and learning about worshiping in Spirit and Truth through music!

The first song I've included here is a great opening prayer or call to worship, inviting all who have a thirst for God to come and be nourished by living water. We've been singing "Holy Spirit, Come" instead of "Come, Lord Jesus, Come", but the tune is the same.

All Who Are Thirsty

Tree of Life Dedication Ceremony

With speeches, prayers, music, dancing, and good food, the Tree of Life statue was dedicated on October 21, 2012. The Tree of Life stands in Victor Steinbrueck Park as a place of remembrance for all those individuals who are homeless and have died in Seattle.

It's updated and done! Most everything that you need to know about children and youth programming this year can be found in our 2012-13 handbook, or at least it will tell you where to find further information. This is meant to be a resource not only for teachers and parents, but as a comprehensive and concise look at our programs and policies for new families considering membership at Plymouth. Please feel free to give a copy to families you meet along the way.

There will always be a pdf version available online here.

I will also have copies available in the blue teacher binders and in the pamphlet holders in the hallway outside the… Read full article >

Bring a Smile to a Face at Mary’s Place

On October 28, Mary’s Place friends will be at Plymouth during our 11 o’clock service & at our stewardship brunch. During their visit, we’d like to present the Mary’s Place group with a symbol of our love & support.  During the next two Sundays, could you & your family, (getting the kids involved of course), bring some of the suggested items shown here? The reality is that many of the women & families that come to Mary’s Place battle poverty; homelessness; live in their car; & arrive with only the clothes on their back.  They can’t afford many of the items below & they cannot be purchased with food stamps.  These simple items, that… Read full article >
