All Church Reads

Plymouth will continue to explore race during Lent using books as our conversation partners. Adult members are invited to read Michael Eric Dyson’s Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America and Plymouth youth members are invited to read All American Boys by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Keily.

We will have weekly meetings at church and around the community to gather and discuss these books. There will be special sessions for the parents of younger children to share age-appropriate book titles and talk about how to read them with your kids.

Books will be available at the church and at Beaverdale Books. Watch the monitors, website, and church publications for more details.
