Exploring Migration: A Faith Journey at Plymouth

 Every minute 24 people are forcibly displaced worldwide.  “Exploring Migration: A Faith Journey” is a program of JustFaith Ministries that invites people of faith to explore what it means to be a displaced person in today’s world.  This eight session module offers participants a chance to find common ground and to discover more about themselves, their values, our God, and the millions of people who are on the move in every part of the world.  We will be offering the Exploring Migration program at Plymouth beginning Sunday, October 6 through Sunday, November 24 from 8-10:15 am.  If you would like more information or would like to register to join this small group, contact Carol Mooney.

Thank You!

Thank you, Plymouth, for your generous response to the School Supply drive for immigrant students! We have received 7 backpacks, a shopping bag of assorted school supplies and $135 in checks to give to the International Rescue Committee (I.R.C.). Old Navy gift  cards to buy school uniforms are also needed. The last opportunity to donate for this project is next Sunday, September 15. Please bring your gifts to the Immigration table in the lounge. We are grateful for your support. Plymouth Immigration Ministry Team.
