We act to seek a more just world

Since our founding in 1857, Plymouth has been committed to making the world a better place. From our early stance against slavery to our recent efforts to expand affordable housing, Plymouth members strive to improve our community, to deepen our spiritual lives and to express our love for one another and all of creation. This ministry of service in pursuit of justice is central to our life as a church.

  • Serve

    Through such projects as Families Moving Forward, Habitat for Humanity and volunteering at the nearby Whittier school, Plymouth members go into into the community to address pressing issues. In addition, the Strobel Drop-in Center at Plymouth Church and the Lydia Apartments Connections group build relationships with our neighbors in need.

  • Advocate

    The Racial Justice Task Force, Caring for Creation, Downtown Congregations to End Homelessness, Plymouth Homelessness Advocacy Team and the Immigrant Welcoming Working Group are avenues for Plymouth members to advocate on issues that matter in our community.

  • Give

    Plymouth is sustained through the generous giving of its members. Ten percent of the gifts given to our church go into the wider community to support local and international organizations that promote economic, environmental and social justice; alleviate poverty; and, advance progressive faith in our community and around the world.
