October - Working for Justice

Putting Love into Practice

Love consists in sharing

what one has and what one is

with those one loves.

Love ought to show itself in deeds more than words.

-St. Ignatius of Loyola

Middle YF Food Justice Project

I'm super excited that Briana Frenchmore will join Anna Florey in teaching Middle YF class in October and November! Briana was our Social Justice Intern last year and is a new Plymouth member! She has great ideas, energy and a fantastic plan for October classes! Here's the plan from Briana:

Our topic for the month of October is: Food Justice: Care for Ourselves, Our Communities and the Earth. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “By the time you’ve finished breakfast, you’ve depended on half the world.” In our first class, we’ll learn about the global production of many of our favorite foods and the impact of fair trade. For our second class,… Read full article >

Please Pick Up Your Children

We tried returning children to worship after class and it's not working. Parents are confused about where to find their kids and teachers are stretched to get the lesson done before noon. We are now providing snacks in class since breakfast is only first Sunday of the month. So, I've made an executive decision that children will remain in class until worship concludes.

K-2 class - Parents please pick up your children from class (room 320).

3rd-4th & 5th-6th classes - Parents are welcome to meet children at the classroom - we will release your child with a buddy to hospitality hour (rooms 321 & 221 respectively).

Children's Choir this Sunday

I'm excited to see the children's choir sing in 11 am worship this Sunday for the first time this year! What a special treat to hear Lizzie Huffaker play her bass, Asa Buehler play electric guitar and Leo Neer drum. What fun - this is not to be missed!

Bring Your Bibles!

Bibles Chander

We give Bibles each year so children of Plymouth will have their own Bible at home so they may read and explore. Children in 3rd-4th and 5th-6th classes are particularly invited to bring their Bibles on Sundays, as their teachers will be incorporate the use of Bibles into class. So, October 12, please bring your Bibles!!

Art Show - A Note to Parents

Through October, Plymouth links the church-wide theme, Working for Social Justice with art created by women from OPS, the Organization for Prostitution Survivors. Mediums include clay, photography, collage, spoken word and more. Plymouth’s first collaboration with OPS celebrates a collection of work made by survivors at weekly OPS facilitated art workshops.

Note to parents - Some of the images in the art are explicit. As Sunday approaches, we will discern how best to make Hildebrand Hall an appropriate worship space while displaying this important social justice art show. Most images would not likely catch the eye of a child, unless… Read full article >
