Many Hearts, One Song; Many Hands, One Church

Our open and affirming church welcomes everyone

Summer Music Series, July 16, 23 & 30, at Temple Israel

Our friends at Temple Israel are kind enough to host our Summer Music Series, 7 p.m. free concerts, while our Sanctuary floors are being refinished. On July 16, our familiar friends Monroe Crossing will play bluegrass. On July 23, Plymouth soloists will sing classics from Rodgers & Hammerstein. And, on July 30, Bradley Greenwald (pictured above) will be joined by Sonja Thompson for English parlor songs. Don’t miss these great concerts! Please note: There is free parking behind Temple Israel.

Camp Plymouth, Aug. 22–25

Looking for a great, relaxing place to spend time with your partner, spouse, children, friends and other members of our church community to celebrate the end of summer? Camp Plymouth (at Luther Crest in Alexandria, Minn.) offers an amazing opportunity for you to connect with other Plymouthites of all ages. It’s a great way to wrap up summer and get prepared for the energy and excitement of September. New this year: Everyone can arrive Thursday afternoon, getting extra time to relax and unwind! Registration is open!

Check out our anti-racist resource list!

“We learn early the racist notion that white people have more because they are more; that people of color have less because they are less,” writes Ibram X. Kendi, director of the Antiracist Research & Policy Center at American University, in The New York Times. . . . . To build a nation of equal opportunity for everyone, we need to dismantle this spurious legacy of our common upbringing. One of the best ways to do this is by reading books. . . . [W]e need to read books that are difficult or unorthodox, that don’t go down easily.”

Please check out our Racial Justice Bibliography and learn more! Books pictured above are available for loan, in our office Conference Room.
