Services, Hours & Access

First Service, especially for young families, is a 30-minute worship service that begins at 9:50 a.m. First Service engages the energy, creativity and spiritual lives of young children. First Service also moves our older children front and center. First Service themes tie directly to our Church School curriculum. We hope that families will join us for this worship opportunity; all ages are welcome. The service concludes at 10:20, in time for children who are participating to go directly to Church School classes with teachers.

Sanctuary Service
Plymouth’s 10:30 worship service is known for extraordinary music, challenging preaching, thoughtful prayers and a spirit that reaches deep and draws up a richness of gifts within the congregation. The service is steeped in a tradition that particularly honors the preached word, yet other elements—sacraments, prayers, readings and, from our many choirs, special music—also fill our worship hour. Both head and heart are engaged, and there’s always the inspiration of seeing the face of God in our gathered congregation.

Childcare

Sundays from 8:45 a.m. to noon (summer 9:30 a.m. to noon), children from newborn to toddlers are cared for by staff and volunteers in Room 209. Care for children of all ages is offered during both the 9:50 a.m. First Service and the 10:30 a.m. Sanctuary Service. Parents who wish to remain with their children are also welcome to bring them to the Parsons Room where they can listen to the 10:30 worship service while caring for their young children.

Vespers
This Sunday evening service is designed to allow people a quiet, reflective time with beautiful music, poetry and scripture. We incorporate the lighting of candles, individual prayer and optional anointing with oil on the hands or forehead. This service is typically held four times a year at 6:45 on a Sunday evening.
