A LETTER FROM PASTOR EMILY…

Dear Friends,

The story of our church this past year is a story of flexibility, resiliency, and faith.

We have found creative solutions to COVID-19 restrictions in the form of outdoor parking lot services and live streaming opportunities. In the past year, the majority of our mission collections were held outdoors while many of our Bible Studies and committee meetings were held online.

When our church building was closed, we took on the messy building projects—replacing the roof, the HVAC system, the sprinkler system, the security system,
and the camera system. We’ve renovated our Sanctuary, Chapel, Upper Room, Nursery, and Tower Room.

We have tried to be good stewards of the time and resources given to us, but now is the time for us to write the next chapter in our church’s story.

Moving forward, as a church, we are committed to remaining Christ-centered and mission-minded under every circumstance. Further, our vision is to cultivate community both in and out of the church. We work to provide opportunities for every person of every age to grow in faith, while also providing opportunities to use our talents and strengths to the glory of God in service.

It’s an exciting time to be part of the First Presbyterian Church of Plymouth.

In order for our church to live into our vision for the future, we will need your prayers, as well as resources of time, talent, and treasure. God invites us to know the joy of giving, which is why I invite you to take time to prayerfully consider what God is calling you to give in the year ahead. Please know every gift of any amount is a blessing. By letting us know your plan for giving (which always can be adjusted at any time if needed), we are better able to plan ministry opportunities for the future.

Thank you for sharing your gifts with our family of faith,

Emily
