Plymouth Church UCC
An Open and Affirming and Just Peace Congregation
ADULT FAITH & LIFE
Looking for a meaningful way to connect with others? Bible Study at Plymouth Church is a relaxed forum for discussing and sharing our personal interpretations of the Bible and other liturgical works. Each Monday at 5:30 PM our Senior Minister, Rev. Dr. Matthew Wooster, leads an exploration of the context and personal meaning of selected Biblical passages or a book they are reading. Supplemental readings from authors such as Bishop Michael Curry, Amy-Jill Levine, and Anne Lamott are also often used to provide additional insight. We are a diverse community, comprised of Plymouth members of different ages, cultural backgrounds, and religious beliefs. If you want to develop a deeper understanding of the Bible and form supportive friendships please join us. Drop-ins are welcome, and no prior “homework” is required! The group currently meets on Zoom; email email@example.com for the link.
Despite what you might think from the group’s title, Fossil Fuel is not a group about oil and natural gas, but rather a discussion group that meets for coffee and pastries (fuel for fossils) as well as lively conversations on a variety of current topics. We are a congenial group that encourages diverse viewpoints at our meetings. Fossil Fuel meets every other Wednesday in Room 102 of Plymouth Church. Everyone is invited to join, and no RSVPs are required. Email the church office (firstname.lastname@example.org) for the current schedule.
Plymouth Lunch Club
Lunch Club takes place on the third Wednesday of the month. Currently we gather for a lecture/conversation/presentation and then a homemade meal is offered as a take home option. You are welcome to join in-person or via Zoom. All are welcome to join. RSVPs are required by sending an email to email@example.com.
Presentation begins at 11 AM in Room 102.
The suggested donation for the meal is $7. Those joining from home can have a meal delivered to them the night before.
Our monthly luncheon is prepared by Plymouth Church’s own, chef Hans Hunziker, owner of At Home Bistro Personal Chef and Catering in Cleveland Heights, Ohio.
Social Justice Collaboration
Guided by the life and words of Jesus and Plymouth's Just Peace Declaration, the Social Justice Collaboration within Plymouth provides a supportive forum and a team for engaging with social justice issues within and outside of Plymouth. This team crosses all generations.
Our goals include:
Building a strong network and engaging others
Having a well-informed congregation that shares information and participates as interested
Undertaking advocacy and service actions
Supporting the members of the congregation, the local community, and the world
The Social Justice Collaboration meets monthly in a hybrid format (in-person and Zoom) to share information. Each meeting will focus on a main issue, which changes every month. All issues currently under consideration are updated each month. Actions proposed by the group include interactive projects, presentations, statements, fundraising, contacting officials, sponsorships, vigils, art, inter-generational projects, innovative programming, and webinars.
Meets 2nd Monday of the month, 7 PM
