What To Expect

We hope you will join us for Sunday morning worship at 10 a.m. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Barrier-Free Facilities. The entire facility is barrier free. An elevator is located in the narthex by the south entry doors for entry to the lower level. Inclusive seating is available in the sanctuary.

Children. Nursery is provided for newborns up to children age 3 years. Children ages 4 – 12th grade are invited to attend Sunday Sessions during morning worship on the lower level. Children come forward during Children’s Time and then are accompanied downstairs. On the second Sunday of the month, children remain in the sanctuary for Family Worship.

Fellowship. Immediately following Sunday worship, all are invited to gather for coffee and tea, treats, and time to connect with each other. Coffee and tea are Fair Trade products.

Accessibility. The main floor restrooms off the narthex are accessible. There is a unisex “family” restroom off the east entryway lobby, which is universally designed with a wide turning radius and grab bars. We have large-print bulletins and hearing assistive devices for Sunday worship.

Communion. We celebrate Communion on the second Sunday of every month. All are welcome to participate. (We serve grape juice and bread that is always gluten-free.)

Adapting for Inclusion. As we continue to grow in our work as people with disabilities and allies and other identities, we adapt and change our practices to build equity and inclusivity. For example, we hold events that are financially accessible to all at only barrier-free & accessible locations, host events on the bus line, create sensory-safe programs and activities, and safe spaces for all.

We believe that this world and everything and everyone within it are God’s.

We believe in love. We are all children of God created with love regardless of race, culture, religious belief, sexual orientation or identity, or where we come from.

Be you, be bold, be love!

We believe we are called to follow Jesus, who showed unconditional love and justice for all people.

 

 

Doing Really Good Stuff

Social justice, advocacy, and mission work are central to Plymouth UCC’s life and identity.

Some of our recent involvement includes: attending vigils and protests (Black Lives Matter, Rapid Response to ICE, End Human Detention Camps), hosting a booth at the Grand Rapids Pride Festival, organizing roadside trash clean-up, and working alongside the Lakota people at Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota.
