Church School Offerings for All Ages

Every Sunday: Church School Offerings for All Ages
The following offerings will be available during the 10 a.m. hour between services this fall. We hope to continue to expand this offering hour with a robust, varied, and frequently changing schedule of classes in faith formation hosted by clergy and lay leaders. All activities are are offered from 10-10:50 a.m. so you can attend either the the 9 or 11 a.m. worship service.

Childcare will available on a limited basis. We are able to care for up to 8 children at a time. All childcare takes place on the first floor. Pre-registration is recommended. If you will be in need of childcare, click here to sign up for upcoming Sunday services.

Church School will be offered via Zoom on Sundays at 11:15 a.m. and Wednesdays at 6 p.m. You can contact Georgia Sheriff about any Church School questions.

Church School for Adults

Our Forum will continue to meet at 10 a.m., but will be moved to Waveland 1-2. Conversations are led by the weekend’s preaching pastor and sometimes guest speakers will join us. Forum will continue to be a hybrid offering on Zoom. Click here to access the link to join.

Animate: Faith
Join us at 10 a.m. in Waveland 3-4 to explore issues of faith and spirituality through the seven-week Animate: Faith series. Each session kicks off with a short video from a leading Christian thinker to help us dig into and discuss our own beliefs, questions, and experiences. Up first is “God: Faith Is a Quest,” a video from Brian McLaren—pastor, author, and leader in the emerging church movement. Sponsored by the Board of Spiritual Growth and Adult Education.

What Happened to You?
Join the Stephen Ministers in the Coffee Shop at 10 a.m. We have been caught up in a worldwide pandemic for over a year. Most of us survived a year that included a lot of isolation, caught up in a vacuum, without our church family by our side. All of us have joy and grief we weren’t able to experience fully because we were not living in community with one another. We need to catch up!

Mayflower Book Study
In preparation for Thanksgiving, the Anti-Racism Committee is sponsoring a four-week book discussion of The Mayflower and the Pilgrims’ New World by National Book Award winner Nathaniel Philbrick. This is an abridged version of his original book Mayflower: a story of courage, community, and war and is more accessible to readers of all ages. Kirkus Review calls it an “elegant, absorbing account of the first two generations of Pilgrims that sets the record straight about the first Thanksgiving and the following decades.” Philbrick offers a more balanced look at the struggle, the compromises and what it took for the Pilgrims and Native Americans to keep the peace for 50 years. It also gives more insight into the Pilgrim’s understanding of their religion and what we have retained of it.

The book study will be offered 4 Sundays October 24 to November 14 at two different times. Purchase your own book or borrow it from the Plymouth digital library at or your local public library.

Study will be held on Sundays in person from 10-10:50 a.m. at Plymouth (no registration required for in person). Class will also be offered virtually on Zoom from 4-5 p.m. on Sundays. To register to join on Zoom, contact Kay Riley. Class will be lead by Karen Jeske, Lorna Truck, and Kay Riley.
