Programs for children, youth and family

Plymouth's guiding vision for spiritual growth for all ages is simple; Create an environment where seeds of faith may take root and grow. Staff, Children and Youth Board members and volunteers craft opportunities where children and their families may encounter the dynamic and transformative presence of God. Art and music projects, discussion circles, service opportunities, mentorships and adult faith topics reinforce the truth that all are beloved.

Together, we listen for the still speaking God. Staff, volunteers and members provide faithful companionship with children and youth of Plymouth as we all discover our faith journeys together. We believe and communicate with children and youth that they are a valued and vital part of the Plymouth community. As adults, we continue our faith journeys and grow in God through our lifetime.
