This Week in Worship . . .

THE  MAGNIFICENT 7

This great western is about seven hardscrabbble gunslingers with serious skills who protect and empower a small town from an evil robber baron. In a sermon with the same name, Dr. Keck will explore 7 magnificent thoughts that can protect us from being overcome by the evil robber baron of fear and anxiety. Come hear a mash-up of the book of Lamentations and Denzel Washington :)


What's Happening at First-Plymouth

FRIENDLY FIRE:
WE CAN THINK DIFFERENTLY AND STILL LOVE ALIKE

Jim Keck, and Rev. Stu Kearns, Senior Pastor at Zion Church show that two Christians on different sides of the theological spectrum can show respect, and even have fun, exploring the differences.

Dr. Abla Hasan

Dr. Abla Hasan, assistant professor of practice of Arabic Language and Culture from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln will be teaching a variety of special learning opportunities about Islam and more this fall at First-Plymouth.

Misunderstood: The Apostle Paul in Three Acts

The Paul of the New Testament pictures a Jesus "for this world and the next," and in this world he has mad skills for building community. 


150 Year Celebration

Our church began on August 19, 1866 when 6 people gathered for the first worship in what was then Lancaster County. What an incredible impact just 6 people had on the very beginnings of our church!

We are celebrating through October 9 with special events and activities including 150 hours of prayer, the Love of Neighbor award, a choir reunion, history feature articles and a carillon concert.


Programs & Activities this Fall at First-Plymouth

First-Plymouth Congregational Church touches thousands of lives each week with the good news of Jesus Christ. Its ongoing ministries reach out to meet the needs of our community and our world.

First-Plymouth seeks to provide pathways for growth. A variety of small groups, events and workshops offer opportunities for friendships, spiritual and personal growth, emotional and spiritual support, or activity and service.
