Living the Questions

This summer at Plymouth we will celebrate a faith in which we are invited to talk to God about our joys, our fears, our doubts, our anger, and all of our questions. Our Summer of Living the Questions will include special worship, two sermon series, music events, Vacation Bible School, and small group opportunities (later in the summer). To enhance your own reflections, learning, and faith formation, we’ve also created reading lists, a podcast list, and questions for your own reflections and journaling. Things will be added to this toolkit throughout the summer, so check back often!

Pride Celebrations: June will be a month full of celebrations and explorations of Plymouth’s tradition as an open and affirming congregation. Click here to learn more.

Small Groups: We will offer organized small group opportunities to talk with each other and make sense out of the past 15 months of living through a global pandemic.

Vacation Bible School: Join us for fun, questions, and conversation for your whole family.

Summer Music Events: When our questions are beyond our understandings, we all appreciate the balm of music. You can be sure that summer at Plymouth will offer many opportunities to enjoy music, including the return of our outdoor lawn concerts.
