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).

One More Chair invites everyone to celebrate summer in the park with Plymouth’s church family!

Directions and pictures: https://mplsparksfoundation.org/7-park-grills-to-bbq-your-summer-feasts/

Food—keep it simple! Bring your own picnic food/drink and tableware. Cold water will be provided. Grills with hot coals (and grill utensils) will be available. If you would like to bring cookies or a finger dessert to share, that would be appreciated.

Facilities: Rain or shine—the picnic will go on! This is a covered pavilion with lots of picnic tables! There is a wading pool and playground as well as a large grassy area for games. Bring croquet or corn hole, or other fun games to share. If you want more seating options, bring a lawn chair. Free parking is adjacent to the shelter.

Other information: The picnic is free; however, donations to help cover the fee for the rental of the shelter will be appreciated. To help the planning committee make any additional plans and to offer ride-sharing, please let us know if you are planning to come.

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.
