In Congregationalism, we commit ourselves to making God’s mission known in community. Ours is a progressive Christian community, recognizing many paths to God and opening ourselves to the great variety of God’s people.
Our covenant is based on the Salem Covenant of 1629: We covenant with you, O God, and one with another, and do bind ourselves in your presence to walk together in all your ways, according as you are pleased to reveal yourself to us in your blessed word of truth.
We, the people of Plymouth Congregational Church, humbly seek and serve God within, among and beyond ourselves. A full description of the Purposes of the Church can be found here.
The congregation is the basis of our governance. Clergy members work closely with lay leaders elected to positions in Deacons, Leadership Council and leaders of the six boards: Community Life, Finance and Administration, Fine Arts, Outreach, Spiritual Formation and Worship. (Scroll to the bottom of this webpage for lists of board members.)
The 2018 Annual Report includes reports from lay leaders and clergy, past meeting minutes, proposed bylaws changes and financial information.
