Ways you can get involved with the kids and teens of Plymouth:

  • Donate candy, prizes or empty plastic eggs (we reuse them!) for the Easter Egg hunt! I am also looking for $5 Gift Cards to any of the following places–Target, Sebastian Joes, Dairy Queen, Caribou, Wild Rumpus, Red Balloon, Chipotle, 5 Below. Candy, eggs and gift cards can be left outside my office (room 201, top of the stairs, education wing).
  • Read a story to be uploaded to our Nighttime with Nina (and friends!) youtube channel.
  • Be a classroom friend, substitute classroom teacher, or volunteer with any of our summer programming.
  • Share your skills for our Life Skills Fair May 21st!

 

Here are some updated requests from our teens:

  • Bike Care
  • Basic Automotive Info
  • Taxes for Teens
  • Apartment Living on a Budget
  • Basic Home Repair (including what to do if you set off smoke alarm or CO detector while cooking!)
  • College Tuition–Where to Find Scholarships
  • The benefits of trade school
  • Finding the right college for what you want to do!
  • Credit Card info
  • Being a savvy online shopper (is this website real or a phishing scam, is this an ethical brand or company, what is a good price for shipping, etc.)

If you can help teach any of these–email Nina!

Advent In a Box

It’s hard to believe, but advent is around the corner, 18 days away to be exact! On Sunday, November 28th, we kick off the holiday season, and just like last year, we are doing Advent in a Box!
If you are interested in signing your household up for the entire kit (or new this year, just the ornaments that you can make at home and bring to Plymouth on December 18th to decorate our community Christmas tree!) sign up here!

Sign-ups are only available through November 22!

Watch the Big Game under the Big Tent!

October 17, 2021
Come together for an intergenerational gathering to watch the Vikings take on the Carolina Panthers. Kick-off is at noon under the Big Top! Bring your chair, wear your fan gear (and bring a mask!), pick up lunch from one of our local restaurants and let’s watch some football! The Committee for Children, Youth, and Families will provide some snacks and hot cider, and there will some activities on hand for kids who get tired of watching the game. We can’t wait to see you there!

Everything kids, teens and parents need to know!

 

Welcome back, Plymouth family!

It has been 2 years since we have had a Rally Sunday in-person gathering, and we can’t wait to see you! Here are the details for Sunday!

*In-person outdoor worship at 9 and 11am!

*Bouncy slide, DJ, treats and activities for all after 9am service. Coffee, treats and fellowship after 11am service.

*Opportunities to take a walking tour through the building to see the Community Art installation hung in Guild Hall.

*Reconnect with old friends and opportunities to introduce new folx to Plymouth–feel free to invite friends to come worship with you!

*100 Hands donation drive–tampons, pads, and Depends requested!

 

COVID protocols–by Rally Sunday, all of our school-age children will have returned to school, exposing all of them to large amounts of children and staff. In order for us all to keep safe and mitigate the spread of COVID, it is vital that masks be worn during worship and singing, as well as on the bouncy slide. We will have some masks on hand. No mask=no slide, regardless of age or vaccination status. It takes our entire community working together to keep each another safe.

 

What you need to know for Wednesday, Sept 15th!

No dinner will be served–please eat before, get dinner in the neighborhood, or purchase at the food truck/farmers market in our parking lot

Most programming will occur outdoors through October, weather permitting. Nina and Dylan will be on hand to help families find rehearsal spaces.

Parents/guardians are invited to bring a camp chair and socialize or work outside (wifi available) during rehearsals–indoor space will NOT be available.

Masks must be worn at all times, whether in or outdoors
