Ride sharing

All are welcome! Think about inviting someone new to our Plymouth Community. If you decide to come at the last minute, that is fine. There is always One More Chair!

New group: Play!

Play! is a One More Chair group for people who love the spoken word. Participants may read a playscript or adapted dialogue from various genres (poetry, fiction, narrative, mystery, novel, memoir, satire, tall tale, epic, or nonsense). Readers will find community and “play” in performing together and perhaps for others. Members may attend and discuss performances in the Twin Cities.

First gathering of Play!

Wednesday, February 28, 4:30–6:00 p.m., at Plymouth. (We’re hoping to establish the 3rd Wednesday of the month as a regular occurring time, but that was not available in February.) Play! choice of the evening: Catherine ni Houlihan by W.B. Yeats.

No need to RSVP, just come.

Convener: Erik Steen (steenerik@hotmail.com)

Happier Hour on Zoom

Happier Hour on Zoom (every Monday at 5 p.m.) is about finding friendship and sharing lives. There is a core of four people who are open to new friendships and want to share this time with others. This is a chance to meet new Plymouth folks, some who don’t always have time to get to church in person but desire friendship. We don’t typically plan the conversation, but let it flow based on what we heard at church on Sunday, what’s going on in the world, or what’s going on in our lives. It’s a great place to meet others in a relaxed, easy to access way. All ages and genders welcome.  Contact Annie Krishnan (annie.krishnan@gmail.com).

Please respond by Sunday, July 16, to Judy Schneebeck: jschneebeck@comcast.net, and let Judy know:

  • The number of people planning to come,
  • If you would like a ride, and
  • If you are able to drive people from the church to the picnic (and how many you can bring).

If your plans fall through or you decide you can come at the last minute, that’s fine.

All are welcome! Think about inviting someone new to Plymouth! There is always One More Chair.
