There are many opportunities offered for members of Plymouth Church to connect outside of regular worship hours. From weekly dinner meetings to small special interest groups, Plymouth provides a vast array of forums in which members have the opportunity to interact and build relationships with one another.
Knife & Fork is a group of senior citizens who enjoy getting together once a month to share a meal. Transportation can be arranged at the time of your reservation. New participants are always welcome!
Mothers of Young Children (MOYC) is an active and growing group of moms in the church with little ones, offering friendship, support, and fellowship to one another.
Retired Men’s Breakfast, the first Wednesday of each month, is a monthly gathering of retired men for fellowship and prayer over a shared breakfast.
Standish Circle is a small group offering Plymouth women the opportunity to gather in various service and social occasions during the year. They meet informally four or five times during the year to provide some sweat equity labor around the church, assist with needs of local charities, make unique products to sell in fundraising efforts, and have fun together. Standish Circle is open to women of all ages who would like an opportunity to enjoy female fellowship while doing something to create a positive impact within our church and community. This group has helped clean closets in Sunday School rooms, has served meals at Wellspring, has held game nights at Cedars HOPE, makes Pepper Jelly in the church kitchen, sells Christmas wreaths and garlands, supports numerous families at Christmas, and has a great time doing it all. The noise, chatter, and good smells coming out of the kitchen during Pepper Jelly preparation are something to experience!
Along with its service activities and other fundraising projects, Standish Circle added Knit and Kibitz in March 2011. This monthly gathering, during which people who knit or crochet or would like to learn come together, usually occurs on the first Thursday of each month. The gathering spurs creativity as everyone shares what they are doing or gets help with a project. Those with expertise take the beginners under their wings, and all share in a wonderful sense of accomplishment.
Membership in Standish Circle is not required to participate in Knit and Kibitz. This group also includes and welcomes members from the Fort Wayne community.
Caring Committee assists families with the arrangements for a reception following the funeral of a loved one. If you would be interested in helping to host, or providing refreshments, please contact the church office to have your name added to the list.
