Arts @ Plymouth

Arts@Plymouth is the Music and Arts Ministry of Plymouth Congregational United Church of Christ, Des Moines.

Many exciting things are happening with the Arts@Plymouth! We work very hard to minister through music and are widely known for the quality of our program. A very large majority of people who attend and visit Plymouth continually mention music as a significant reason they attend. We are very proud of that.

Often what we “do” is provide music for worship, but that is only a beginning to music ministry. Our job doesn’t end with the benediction on Sunday morning, but includes many facets of discipleship and mission activities through which music and the arts can be a tool to touch lives. This drives our goals and our activities.
