    What We Believe

    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.

  • Bible in 90 Days

    plymouth reads the bible in 90 days!

    Have you ever read the Bible from cover to cover? Every last psalm, gospel, letter, song and list of begats?

    Do you ever wish you could disappear when someone quotes a chapter and verse and acts like everyone knows which one that is? Except you don’t?

    And do you ever get frustrated when conservative Christians use Bible verses to support political causes?

    Most of us can answer “yes” to at least one of those, if not more! So join us for “Plymouth Reads the Bible in 90 Days!” Ministers LeAnn Stubbs, Kit Novotny and Corinne Ellis will lead the journey of 12 pages per day and discuss the readings each Wednesday night.
