Plymouth Church UCC

No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here.

Plymouth Church UCC, located at the corner of E. Hampshire and N. Hackett on the eastside, traces its Milwaukee roots back to 1841. We join with other progressive congregations to form the United Church of Christ.

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 backgrounds, 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 to join in our diverse and loving family.

Mask Update - March 8, 2022

The Re-Opening Committee, with approval from Plymouth's Church Council, is very happy to announce that masks are no longer required to be worn while in Plymouth Church.*

We are a Mask Affirming congregation, so those who choose to continue to wear a mask are welcome to do so without fear of criticism.

The Committee thanks all of the members and friends who responded to the survey last week. Your candid answers combined with the recommendations from the CDC and the WI Council of Churches (two sources whose good information and guidance we have followed throughout the pandemic) and the current low levels of occurrence in Milwaukee County made the discussion at Thursday's meeting and the follow-up meeting last night very hopeful about moving forward with lifting our mask mandate.

*We do ask that those who are around the very youngest children please wear a mask, because they cannot get vaccinated yet.

Toward a spirit of truth and reconciliation, we acknowledge that Plymouth United Church of Christ has been on land whose indigenous caretakers are the Menominee, Potawatomi and Ho-Chunk people.
