Plymouth Solar Power!!!

Since the installation of Plymouth's solar array in 2015, its solar panels have produced 51.92 Megawatt hours (MWh) of energy. We've saved the atmosphere 80,451 lbs. of CO2 emissions; the equivalent of planting 2,025 trees.  Visit the SolarEdge monitoring portal and view our solar installation data online. 

Composting Begins March 1

Did you know that 31% of our food supply ends up in landfills? Staring March 1, your paper cup or half eaten cookie can be turned into soil enriching compost, instead of adding to local landfills. Plymouth will be switching to a 3-bin system during Fellowship time, with options for compost, recycling, and trash. Look for helpful posters and "bin guard" volunteers to assist you.Did you know that food waste contributes to 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions? 

Youth Ministry

Middle & High School Youth Ministry Matters!

Youth Ministry truly is whole church ministry and our youth learn in ways that are different than say a baby, or an elder. Sometimes this means gathering for game nights, and retreats. Some of our youth prefer to be involved by serving in leadership positions on Diaconate, Trustees, or helping in Sunday Sessions. There are many ways to be involved and share your gifts. Here is a link to a Google Form that lists different ideas on how our youth can engage in spreading love to others. These examples were compiled by Plymouth youth during a brainstorming session. We’d like to hear from more of our youth. Parents and caregivers, we’d love if you could spend a little time with your youth to see what they are passionate about. And if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out,

Plymouth UCC Approves Immigrant Welcoming Education Process

This action follows a resolution adopted at the 2017 UCC General Synod declaring the United Church of Christ to be an Immigrant Welcoming Denomination and calling on all settings of the UCC to do the same. Read the 2017 UCCGeneral Synod resolution here.
