Wedding Coordinators

2021-09-01

As we begin to emerge from the pandemic, and once again look forward to welcoming couples into our Sanctuary for weddings, we find that we are in need of wedding coordinators. The wedding coordinator provides an important service to wedding parties and our congregation by guiding and contributing to a meaningful and pleasant experience for all who are married at Plymouth Church. We are seeking two or three people to serve as Wedding Coordinators, providing direction, support and hospitality to the bride and groom, wedding party, and their families. This is done by providing assistance with planning, the wedding rehearsal, and coordination and oversight of pre-wedding activities. Initial training and assistance will be provided by individuals who have served in this way in the past.

If you’re interested in serving our congregation in this capacity, please contact our Director of Operations and Finance, Emily Tripp by email or by phone at 515.255.3149.

Flower Delivery

2021-08-31

Have you ever wondered what happens to the flowers after they’ve beautified the space in Sunday service? They are taken apart by a team of volunteers, converted into 2 or 3 smaller bouquets, and delivered to people who might appreciate a floral greeting from their friends at Plymouth. We are gathering an intrepid band of folks who will take turns in this ministry of care for those who are sick or unable to attend service. If you would like to be part of this ministry, please email Diane Hayes.

Refugee Family Volunteer

Looking for a socially-distant way to get involved with the refugee family project? Consider volunteering to assist our Welcome Team with an outdoor event at the church welcoming our refugee family to Des Moines. The family is expected to arrive in September, and the outdoor welcome event will take place within the first few weeks after the family’s arrival. We will be following current public health recommendations to encourage social distancing at our outdoor event. Planning meetings take place over Zoom, and we’d love to have you join us!

If you’re interested in volunteering or have questions, please contact Mark Doherty at or 515.867.4341. To read more about the refugee family project, click here.
