Classes for Families

Plymouth Church’s Classes for Families walk families through important stages in faith formation and life. Our classes will empower people to share life experiences, connect with others who are in a similar stage in life, and grow as a community of faith.

our classes for families help us…

  • To bring people together through shared experiences, fostering relationships across the congregation
  • To offer information about sacraments and aspects of the UCC church as tools for spiritual growth
  • To empower members of the congregation and staff to share gifts and knowledge that are helpful and relevant
  • To recognize this good work through congregational blessings

Classes are taught by lay leaders, program staff, and Ministers.
