Plymouth Church is a vibrant, caring, active, thinking – and even questioning! – congregation in the heart of Des Moines, Iowa where all are welcome! During every worship service you’ll hear us say: “No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you are always welcome here.” We say it over and over again because we live it...not just in worship, but through hundreds of rewarding and enriching activities that happen in and around Plymouth all week and all year.Learn More About Us

Plymouth preachers can PREACH. But these sermons aren't performances. They might not even make it on TV. There's no light show, no video screens, no praise band behind them. It's just a Plymouth minister, bearing his or her beliefs about scripture in a way that will touch your soul. Each week, you'll find that Plymouth ministers will leave you with a message that you'll ponder for days to come. And isn't that what sermons are all about?
Whether you're a potential visitor and want to sample a sermon from our Saturday night or Sunday morning worship service, catch a sermon you missed while traveling, or relive a sermon you thoroughly enjoyed, just click below.
