Milwaukee About Us.jpg

We are a Christian community and church with a long history in Milwaukee, founded in 1841. We are members of the United Church of Christ, a progressive Protestant denomination that exists throughout the U.S.


We are a people of prayer, turning to God for strength, guidance, challenge and comfort. We practice a radical welcome, and seek to follow Jesus, to do the work of love, reconciliation, and service, which he calls us to do. We speak to the great questions and challenges of justice and mercy in our personal lives and in our society. We care for the wounded, the hurting and for those experiencing crisis in their lives.


We seek an informed faith and welcome questions. We acknowledge what we don't know, even as we sincerely affirm the truth we do know. We take the Bible seriously, but not literally. Preaching at Plymouth is informed Bible preaching.


We are a playful people who believe in living joyfully. We love to sing, to create, and to be moved by the Spirit. We enjoy lively worship, dance, and music.


We respect, share and work with other churches, as well as people of other faiths. Our community is comprised of people from all walks of life, economic conditions and back grounds, all ages, and all races and cultures. We warmly welcome gay and lesbian persons, their families and friends.


We love this city and what it represents in vitality and diversity. Members of our church come to Plymouth from throughout the city, and surrounding areas, even from an hour away, to join in our diverse and loving family.


Learn more by exploring this website or by speaking with our pastors Andrew Warner or Bridget Flad, who can be reached through the church office at (414) 964-1513.

Serving Thanksgiving at Homeless Shelter

posted Oct 24, 2014, 12:35 PM by Andrew Warner   [ updated Oct 24, 2014, 12:35 PM by Barbara Parkman ]

What better way is there to show our gratitude than to serve a Thanksgiving meal to the 86 men at the Guest House?

 

We will serve lunch at noon on Thursday, 11/27, and will need many people to cook and 10-20 to serve.

 

The kitchen at the Guest House is very small, so the items you provide will need to be dropped off warm at 1216 N. 13th Street. There are ovens to re-heat, but no stovetop. Disposable pans would be ideal, as managing the return of dozens of pans will be daunting.

 

If you are interested in being a part of this celebration of gratitude, you can sign up here with what you will provide and note if you plan to stay to serve.

 

As questions arise, please contact Pastor Bridget in the church office, and watch here for more info. THANK YOU!

Art Exhibit on Caring for Elders

posted Oct 24, 2014, 12:33 PM by Andrew Warner   [ updated Oct 24, 2014, 12:33 PM by Barbara Parkman ]

September 28 through November 3, there will be a sharing to honor our loved ones who become Elders in our community. It will be in the Bill Douglas Commons. If you wish to be a part of this sharing please be in touch with Fran Cheney  -shagbarkhickory@sbcglobal.net. You can join in anytime through October.  Brooke Luteyn, Andrew Warner, and Fran have been working on this together.

 

Fran will share Jim Cheney's story - an Elder who valued Plymouth Church. In his Alzheimers life before he went to the Catholic Home, Jim loved going to church with Fran. He loved coffee hour. He would often sit through Adult Education Hour. He had trouble sharing verbally but he shared so well in other ways.

 

Fran adds, "I am thankful for the wonderful cards and good wishes that have come our way from Plymouth people. For Jim's name at prayer concerns time during the church service. For very dear friends. For Jim's family and mine. Especially for our son Carlos, Karen his wife, and our grandchildren. The Holy Spirit is often with me."
