PRESENCE, PRACTICE, PROCLAIM
For many, the idea of a “church” is an outdated, irrelevant or judgmental organization that refuses to interact with those who do not share their standards and beliefs. At Plymouth Park, we have a passion for this group of people and are committed to making the church both a community that worships God and that takes the message of his grace to all people. We are a church of doubters, seekers, and followers who are learning to follow and worship Jesus Christ. All are welcome with no prerequisite of church background or prior belief. Bring your faith and your doubt, your joy and your tears, your praise, and your selfishness. As a church, we want to emulate Jesus’ call in Matthew 11:28 for all to come to him.
Turning up to a church service for the first time can be a little bit daunting. Even if you're a seasoned church attender, a new church with new people can quickly have you outside your comfort zone. The following is some information you might find useful for your first visit.

FAMILIES & CHILDREN
We are so glad you and your children are planning to visit Plymouth Park! For the safety of your children, we will ask for some information about your child and explain our drop-off and pick-up procedures. We’ll also show you where your child’s Sunday School Class or Kid’s Worship Service is located and introduce you to his or her teachers. All of our nursery, preschool, and children’s teachers have completed background checks and child-safety training. To find out more about our children’s ministries, click here.
There will be a time at the beginning of our gathering where we will make some announcements and pray together as a congregation. We would also be honored to pray for you and your loved ones personally. If you’d like for us to pray for you, please feel free to talk with one of our pastors following the service, and/or fill out a prayer request card that you can find in the back of our chairs, and place it in the offering plate or turn it in to a minister at the end of the service.
We take an offering each Sunday where our members and regular attenders will give a tithe of their income to support our efforts to fulfill God’s mission in our community and around the world. We do this as an offering to God, thanking Him for what He has blessed us with in our lives. As our guest, please do not feel obligated to contribute anything financially. All we’d like from you is your contact information so we can contact you and let you know how happy we are to have you with us this week. You can give us your contact information on a card in the back of the pews and turn it in the offering plate or to a minister at the end of the service.
Our music style is what many might call "blended." On a typical Sunday you will hear traditional songs of the faith and more modern contemporary songs. We have a choir, orchestra, praise band, and worship team.
Every week someone will stand before us and preach the Word of God. This is the center of our Sunday morning worship gathering. This is where we are inspired and transformed by God’s self-revelation (the Bible) as it is proclaimed to us through the lens of the gospel or good news about Jesus. This portion of our gathering usually lasts about 40 minutes.
On a regular basis, we celebrate the Lord’s Supper. This is something we do that signifies our unity with Christ, and we encourage all followers of Jesus (who have been baptized) to participate in this portion of our services with us but don’t feel obligated.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
