This week in Worship



A Transfiguration that’s Contagious

February 25 & 26 with Rev. Patrick Messer

Have you ever witnessed something so beautiful and captivating that you felt it in the deepest places of your heart and mind?  Some events are so powerful they can change you just by simply witnessing it.  This week, we’ll join 3 of Jesus' disciples on a mountaintop where we will witness a sudden burst of God’s majesty in the face of Christ.  And like those disciples, we’ll leave that mountain forever changed by what we saw.  

Saturday 5:30pm, Sunday 9:00am, 10:30am at 20th & D Streets;  Sunday 9:30am @ FP East (6601 Glass Ridge Dr); and Sunday, 7:00pm at FP Presents.

Jim Miller joins First-Plymouth pastoral team

First-Plymouth welcomed Jim Miller to its pastoral team Feb. 1. Miller, a retired Methodist minister, will provide care, counseling and support for individuals in need, as well as offer general ministerial coverage for our church.

“We are very fortunate to be able to add Jim Miller to our team,” said Senior Minister Jim Keck. “Both his credentials and his personal dedication to caring for individuals make him a good fit with the First-Plymouth community. I look forward to working with him.”

Miller most recently served as Senior Minister at Christ United Methodist Church in Lincoln. He retired from that position in 2015. Miller says this new part-time role is a perfect fit for him because he has a passion for ministry and a desire to serve a vibrant spiritual community like First-Plymouth.

Open Minded

Our worship services have a quality that echoes through the ages and yet, speaks to the present and points to the future. 


We believe God is a spirit of love that can be felt and known by each one of us.


Rather than resisting change or innovation, we eagerly experiment with new ways of being faithful and new understandings


We celebrate the differences among us such as sexual orientation, ethnicity, class, mental abilities, physical capabilities, personalities, and backgrounds.
