Welcome Visitors!

No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you are always welcome at Plymouth Church!

We’re thrilled that you’ve come to visit our website to learn more. And we hope that you’ll visit us in person — if you haven’t already — and experience for yourself the loving, accepting, caring and socially engaged atmosphere that is Plymouth.

It’s true…lots of churches say those same things. But browse through our website and investigate the many ministries in which Plymouth people are involved. You’ll see why Plymouth is known throughout the city and the country for its opportunities for worship, education, outreach, and friendship. We are… Energized by great programs for children and youth. Renewed with wide-ranging education for adults. Deepened by Scripture-based, passionate preaching. Growing with award-winning choirs. Serving others with compassion. And addressing the vital concerns of today.

Our history in Des Moines is long. Our predescessors first met as Plymouth Congregational Church in 1857, joining the national United Church of Christ in 1957, and we celebrated our 150th anniversary in 2007. During that time we have been known as Plymouth Congregational Church, Plymouth United Church of Christ and Plymouth Church for brevity…but our fundamental beliefs have remained the same. Love of God and Neighbor.

Welcome to Plymouth!
