Governance

Our congregation is governed by our Church Council. It comprises two representatives from each of the nine boards at Plymouth, as well as one member from Plymouth Women, a member at large, and our Moderator and Moderator-elect, who act as the chair and chair-elect of the congregation. Ministers and other members of the program staff are non-voting members of Church Council. Each congregation in the United Church of Christ is self-governed, and we operate according to our by-laws. The work of our congregation is summarized each year in our annual report.
