Welcoming Group,  Sunday, February 1, 11:30 am to 2:30 pm

If your faith journey is leading you to explore becoming a member of Plymouth Church, this one-time required session is what you need.  Our time together will focus on orientation, conversation, interpretation, and exploration.  It is an opportunity for you to ask questions and to meet others who are considering affirming their formal relationship with the congregation.  

Church membership carries the privilege and responsibility of voting in congregational meetings.  It also opens the door to serving as an elected leader through board membership or office of the church.

Rev. Ruth E. Phillips leads this group session.  Please contact her at 423-9424, ext. 322,  or email rep@plymouthfw.org  to register your intention to participate.  A light lunch is provided.  

 

AN ECONOMIST WILL TELL YOU…   At the Sunday February 8 meeting of the Amazing Grays

The ICMEP - Two Films in February

 

Thursday, February 5, 6:00-9:00 pm, Allen County Public Library Theater, Downtown. We hear from Dr. Clayborne Carson, head of Stanford University's Martin Luther King Jr. Research Institute, and screen his film, Al Helm: Martin Luther King in Palestine.  Coretta Scott King gave Dr. Carson custody of her husband's papers upon his death.  The film traces Dr. Carson as he leads an African-American youth singing and theater group to Palestine to perform with the Palestine National Theater a play he wrote about Dr. King.  The youth find parallel stories between what they observe about the Palestinian experience and their own in the US civil rights struggle

 

Friday, February 13, 6:30 pm, Manchester University College of Pharmacy Theater, DuPont Campus, 10627 Diebold Road, Fort Wayne.The award-winning Slingshot Hip Hop, braids together the stories of young Palestinians living in Gaza, the West Bank and inside Israel as they discover Hip Hop and employ it as a tool to surmount divisions imposed by occupation and poverty. From internal checkpoints and Separation Walls to gender norms and generational differences, this is the story of young people crossing the borders that separate them
