Life at Plymouth
During COVID-19

Your Church Health and Safety Task Force cares about your health, our staff’s health, and the health of our community. The Task Force continues to monitor COVID cases, hospitalizations, and deaths, as well as vaccine distribution in Polk County. In addition, it continues to listen and respond to the needs of the people of Plymouth as well as safeguarding our staff and its resources.

With all these considerations, and in addition to all the virtual opportunities to worship and “gather,” the Task Force supports Plymouth’s offering of measured opportunities for its people to “worship” in small, safe ways inside the Plymouth Church building. While full-church worship in the Sanctuary is not on the immediate horizon, we are making steady progress toward that time with carefully planned, small and brief in-person worship opportunities throughout the spring. See News on our homepage for up-to-date events! Or check our online calendar of events.

Plymouth is very much at work throughout the community and accessible to you!

Plymouth Church staff is still working and may be reached at their individual email addresses, or by calling the church office. The automated phone system will guide you to the voicemail of the staff person you’re calling.

The members of the Task Force thank all the people of Plymouth for continued patience, prayers, precautions, and perseverance while Plymouth begins to offer ways to regather safely in person while still offering the creative breadth of online worship opportunities.
