Because of You, Plymouth Church Changes Lives
Plymouth Outdoor Sign
Dear Plymouth friends,

What are the odds?

During Spring Break a few weeks ago, a family from our church went to Holy Hill to experience the gorgeous spring view. After walking around for awhile, they sat down to rest and soon another family sat down with them. They started talking about how beautiful it is there, that the kids are out of school, and then, because they were at a Catholic Basilica, where they usually attend worship. "We go to Plymouth Church." (pause) "Um, so do we." "Really? Shouldn't we know each other?" "We go to Plymouth UCC in Milwaukee." **AHA** "We go to Plymouth UCC in Fond du Lac."

In our Scripture this week, a disciple is walking with a friend on the road to Emmaus when another man joins them. The man asks why they are sad. They reply, "Don't you know?!? Jesus, the great prophet would redeem Israel, was crucified three days earlier and that some women from the group said they saw angels at his tomb who told them Jesus was alive." The man then asks, "Don't you know that the Messiah had to suffer before he could enter his glory?" As they have been walking, it's gotten late so the tow men urge the stranger to stay with them instead of traveling alone which is unsafe. At dinner, the stranger takes bread, blesses it, and gives it to them. **AHA** Their eyes were opened and they recognize Jesus.

Let us open our eyes for the *AHA* moments that God puts in our lives.

Plymouth Game Night - 4/29

After a winter break, it's time to pull out the boards, instructions, dice, cards, game pieces, pencils, paper, popcorn, etc., for PLYMOUTH ADULT GAME NIGHT!

We'll meet from 6:30 to 9:00 pm on Saturday, April 29in the lower reception hall.

Let's GROW this group. Spread the word. If you have a Facebook page, I challenge you to post an invite to all of your friends saying something like, "Hey, anyone enjoy playing games with other adults? Board games, card games, and more!" You never know; there are closet game-lovers out there who have nowhere to indulge, and they might be excited to check us out.

We provide a variety of games or you can bring your own. Bring a snack to share, if you like.

Any questions, contact Kris Devitt (kmdevitt@gmail.com or 414-241-3453).

Hope to see you all there!

Guest Preacher on April 30

Rev. Kathryn Kuhn serves as director of ministries at Cedar Community, a UCC-affiliated, continuing-care retirement community with campuses in West Bend and Elkhart Lake. 

An ordained minister in the United Church of Christ since 1997, Rev. Kuhn served parishes in Germantown, Kiel and Sheboygan Falls prior to coming to Cedar Community in 2013.

Rev. Kuhn lives in rural Kiel with her husband, Rev. Dr. Karl Kuhn, and their nearly grown-up children, Josh and Clare.

Faith leaders from Congregation Emanu-El B'ne Jeshurun, Congregation Shalom, Congregation Shir Hadash, Lake Park Lutheran Church, Milwaukee Metropolitan Community Church, Plymouth Church, and Tippecanoe Presbyterian Church will come together on April 30 to lift up the sacred work of Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin. We believe that the life-giving health care provided at its clinics around Wisconsin is God's work done by God's children for God's children. We stand together in support of Planned Parenthood, its mission, work, and patients.
