May 22 Final Day Of "Sunday School" For The year!

We will be celebrating the year with a special breakfast and craft in the Sunday, May 22, 9:00 am, in the Folsom Room.  Sunday school students and teachers, as well as their families, are invited to attend.  Please sign up on the bulletin board to help us plan the amount of food needed.

 

Sunday School Teachers Needed!

Next year, all our Sunday-schoolers, from preschool through high school, will be working their way through the Bible from front to back. We'll be exploring how the one story of God's love keeps popping up in different ways. And we want you to join us!  Our Sunday school needs Classroom Teachers to share the stories, and Visiting Artists to help us creatively retell the stories.  To learn more, please talk to Katie Watson.

Indiana-Kentucky United Church of Christ Annual Gathering: Service Project 2016

Goal: 1,000 Hygiene Kits

Plymouth Goal: 500 toothbrushes

In the face of natural disasters, violence, or grinding poverty, Hygiene Kits can mean the difference between sickness and health for struggling families. This year at the IKC Annual Gathering, a few people will be helped when 1,000 Hygiene Kits are created to share with Church World Service. We all know we are stronger when we work  together. Therefore, each association is being asked to collect specific items for this project. Plymouth  needs to collect 500 new Toothbrushes (adult size, single, original packaging). Deadline is Friday, May 27.

Kits will be assembled at the Annual Gathering, so don’t worry about the details, just collect your items! Some people have found that often the best prices for items are found online, but however you want to acquire your items is fine. Please help reach our goal and help others turn dreams into reality!

 

Plymouth Officially Under Construction

The construction project on the new HVAC system that is to be installed has begun!  The boiler has been shut down, and the removal process will take place over the next few weeks.

  1. If you have respiratory issues, please be alerted that you may want to stay out of the office building for the time being.
  2. Depending upon the weather, the church may feel cool at times until warm weather is here to stay. 
  3. This summer, the temperature inside may be warmer than usual at times in certain locations due to renovations to the air conditioning systems.
  4. There will be some days that we will not have hot water in the building, and/or some restrooms may be closed.  Some other areas also will have limited or no access for a period of time.
  5. There will be some odors, noise, dust, and extra workers in the building throughout the project, which is expected to be completed in early-to-mid October. 
  6. When scheduling events at Plymouth, please remember that, during the construction process, staff cannot guarantee the future condition of any room.

A construction schedule is posted on the bulletin board outside the main office to give everyone an idea of what is happening and when.  Schedules may have to be modified and changed at times during a project such as this, so it may not be always be 100% accurate.  Please check with the church office if you have a meeting or activity scheduled to see if your reserved location will be affected by the construction.  You may possibly need to make alternative arrangements.

Your patience and understanding for the minor inconveniences we will all experience during the duration of the project is something we are all counting on.  The end result will be a much more efficient and comfortable building for everyone.
