Embroideries in Context: Two American Indian leaders join us March 17 

Plymouth member Louise Matson, director of the Division of Indian Work, and Rev. Jim Bear Jacobs, Minnesota Council of Churches Racial Justice Program Director, join member/historian Annette Atkins for the final Embroideries in Context discussion this Sunday, March 17, at 10 in Guild Hall. Don’t miss it! Dig into the racial justice reading and resource list. Watch Carlyle Brown performing the very powerful Acting Black. (He brought it to our Conn Theater on Jan. 26).

Free recital April 7, with Plymouth soloists

Our five soloists—James Bohn, Dan Dressen, Lisa Drew, Jenny French and Maria Jette—will perform at a 4:30 p.m. recital, April 7, in Guild Hall (and, like other concerts, it is free!). Each of them will present music from various parts of the world and many centuries—everything from Bach and Scarlatti to Mahler and Vaughan Williams. Sonja Thompson and Philip Brunelle will accompany, with Diane Hallberg, flute. This performance is one of the events celebrating Philip Brunelle’s 50th year as organist-choirmaster at Plymouth Congregational Church. Admission is free, no tickets are needed and parking is available at the church. [Photo credit: Mark Christman]

About Us

Plymouth Congregational Church is a progressive faith community grounded in the Christian tradition. In mutual care and with respect for our diverse understandings of God, we seek to embody the radical love and justice found in the life, teachings and spirit of Jesus.

Located at the southern edge of downtown Minneapolis, Plymouth Congregational Church offers worship services and spiritual learning opportunities for all ages that are relevant to the world in which we live.

We are committed to creating sanctuary for the soul and seeking the sacred in all ways. We engage the ancient teachings to bring them alive today, nourishing and expanding hearts and minds to become the change we want to see in the world.

The Space Between is a mini-blog for our congregation during this time of transition, written by Interim Minister Dan Wolpert.

First Service, 9 a.m.; Second Service, 11 a.m.
 Sundays at 10, people of all ages have education offerings, which we encourage everyone to attend.

PLEASE GIVE to Plymouth’s 2019 Stewardship campaign, which supports our church, our programs and our outreach. We also invite you to contribute to the 50th Anniversary Fund, which honors Philip Brunelle in his 50th year as our Organist-Choirmaster and will enhance our worship experiences..
