Transgender Day of Visibility
Friday, March 31
Plymouth members and friends participated this week in lifting up and celebrating the "accomplishments and victories" of trans and gender non-conforming people (from GRPride.org). To show Plymouth's stance as an ally, the Open and Affirming Committee has hung a Trans flag in the narthex. For information about this week's events and Friday's fundraiser for GR Pride and the Grand Rapids Trans Foundation, visit www.grpride.org/tdov.
Emergency Pastoral Contact
There is always a clergy on call in Rev. Van Doren's absence. If you have a pastoral emergency call the church office (616.455.4260). The secretary or church message will tell you who is on call and how to contact them.

"...a Budget that Uplifts the Common Good
UCC denominational leaders have asked people to speak up against President Trump's recent budget proposal which calls for a large increase in military spending offset by severe cuts across much of the rest of the government including the elimination of federal programs that assist the poor, slashing of funding for environmental protection, scientific research, foreign aid, and diplomacy. Follow this link to urge Congress to work towards a budget that reflects our commitment to the common good, uplifts all people, and protects God’s Creation!
