I am so incredibly thankful for your compassion and care. October 14 was an incredible day for me as I entered into ordained ministry. It is because of you, Plymouth members, that I can begin my call here. I have come a long way from the crib room, through the Sunday school program and finally as a young adult in your midst. I am the person I am today and have heard a call to ministry because of the various programs at Plymouth and as a result of each of you who have guided and journeyed alongside me as I have discerned my role in the Church. I know I would not be where I am today were it not for each of you, and for that, I extend my deepest gratitude. It is both humbling and an honor to be called to Plymouth Church UCC and it is with great joy that I enter ordained ministry to serve both Plymouth and the wider church.
Thank you, Plymouth! –Rev. Kevin Bechtold
