Plymouth Church UCC
No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here.
Advent begins on Sunday, November 28! Advent is a season within the liturgical church calendar that starts the fourth Sunday before Christmas.
It is a time of watching and waiting as we prepare our hearts for the birth of Jesus. Advent can be a blur with our packed schedules and long to-do lists. Our Advent theme: A “Less Is More” Christmas is an invitation for the Plymouth family to rekindle the real meaning of the season through devotion time, worship, and intergenerational workshops.
We hope that you will join us for some, or all, of this Advent season as we begin preparing room in our hearts for Immanuel-God with us!
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.
