Serve

Plymouth upholds a long tradition of putting its faith into action through service. We emphasize building relationships with our neighbors with compassion and service. People-to-people and hands-on projects help address issues in our communities. As we collaborate with our neighbors in need and fellow members, we are transformed spiritually. There are many opportunities to serve throughout the community.

Offering skills in church leadership—as a Deacon, Leadership Council officer or board member—is another way to serve. Nominate yourself or others to a leadership position with this nomination form.
