Arts @ Plymouth Concert Series

The mission of the Arts @ Plymouth is to explore, nurture and celebrate the relationships among artistic expression, personal enrichment and spiritual growth. Through offerings that reflect the church's ministry and mission, we seek to enrich Sunday morning worship; offer artistic programs for children, youth and families; and present outstanding concerts for our congregation and community.

Weekly Prayer Vigil of Lament
Noon, Meditation Chapel
This is a half-hour prayer vigil of lament and healing for our broken world. The theologian Karl Barth urged Christians to pray with "the Bible in one hand and the newspaper in the other." In these weekly prayer vigils, we will seek to pray just this way - struggling with both scripture and current events, as we bring the pain of our world to God in communal prayer.
