Deep Roots—Strong Spirit—Bright Future

Our open and affirming church welcomes everyone

Along the way . . . 

Reflections on spiritual and Christian life are offered in each Friday email by our Plymouth ministers. Recent topics have included anger, Independence Day and choosing to be a prophet or an evangelist as we address the climate crisis. Join us in our pilgrimage along the way here.
