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

This Sunday, April 15, Lisa Hart, a representative from the Wisconsin Conference UCC Immigrant Welcoming Committee, will be leading the first program in our series on Plymouth's Immigration Initiative. She will share information in worship and also lead an Adult Education program in the upper study. This will be the first link in a chain leading to a congregational meeting on May 10 to discuss the New Sanctuary Movement, and we hope you'll be able to join us to hear what she has to say.

Upcoming events include:

Sunday, April 22: DACA college students ("Dreamers") will be sharing during Adult Education.

Sunday, April 29: There will be an intergenerational Art Build in the reception hall after worship service.  We'll be painting cloth banners and coloring paper butterflies to be used in the "Day Without Latinos" march on May 1st. No art experience or expertise is needed. Folks from Plymouth will march together wearing PJN (Plymouth Justice Network) t-shirts and carrying the banners & butterflies created by the congregation.  Contact Kelly Lempa for more details: (262) 676-7017.

Sunday, May 20: A congregational meeting will be held to reflect on our nine months of study regarding immigration (September, December, and April adult education sessions).  The meeting may consider a resolution relating to Plymouth joining the New Sanctuary Movement. Any proposed resolution will be shared with the congregation at least two weeks in advance of the meeting.

Here at Plymouth.

The secure detention facility in Milwaukee (MSDF) is an unnecessary waste of taxpayer dollars, caused several deaths, cages people without new criminal charges, and needs to be closed!

Come hear Mark Rice from EXPO present up-to-date information about this problem and learn how you can help.

Hosted by Plymouth United Church of Christ and Congregation Shir Hadash
Save the Date!

Plymouth Chorale Presents "Missa Gaia" - Mass for the Earth

Have you ever heard a wolf sing the Kyrie? Or listened to a humpback whale chant the Sanctus? Have you ever been encouraged to sing along at a choir concert? Or listened to a duet of birdsong and cello? Plymouth Chorale's performance of Paul Winter's "Missa Gaia" will contain all these things and more. In an hour, we will celebrate all of creation with a 36-voice chorus, 9 instrumentalists, 4 human soloists, and a menagerie of soloists from nature.

Two performances will take place: Saturday AFTERNOON, April 28th, at 3pm, and Sunday EVENING, April 29th, at 7pm. Suggested donation amounts are $15 for adults and $10 for seniors, but any amount is welcome. Net proceeds will benefit the organ fund. (If you are unable to attend either performance, please contact Donna for another option on Wednesday, April 25th.)
