Singers from more than 20 states and Canada will be coming to gather in Lincoln for First-Plymouth’s first choral/spiritual retreat. The weekend of rehearsals and workshops and worship will culminate on Sunday morning July 21 when nearly 100 musicians will raise their voices together in our 9:00 and 10:30am services. Dr. Jim Keck and Michael Hawn will be our preachers. Join us as we sing our faith…and refresh our spirit!

Sat 5:30pm and Sun 9:00 and 10:30am 20th & D


Captive to the Spirit

The Book of Acts makes a dramatic and heavy turn as it nears the end of its story. In this passage, Paul begins a journey to Jerusalem that everyone begs him to abandon. But, Paul resists this tidal wave of persuasion with a simple explanation: he is a mere captive of the Spirit who is determined to get him to Jerusalem. What is it that the Spirit and Paul see that no one else can? Is it possible for us to see it?

Sun 8:00am and 11:59am at 20th & D
Sun 9:30am at First-Plymouth East (Kloefkorn Elementary, 6601 Glass Ridge Dr)

Friday, July 19, 9:00pm

Compline is the most unique evening worship (and the most timeless liturgy) which First-Plymouth offers to the congregation and community. No words are spoken; with lights dimmed and candles flickering, the calming ancient chants, angelically sung by the Schola Cantorum, open a doorway into the realm of spirit. The only thing a person attending “does” is light a candle, and it is utterly captivating.

All are invited to simply walk into this mystical service, sit quietly and allow an experience of deep inner peace.

First-Plymouth is a loving, caring congregation. We offer support through difficult times along life’s journey. If you or a loved one would appreciate some pastoral support, we encourage you to let us know through our Care Connection.

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.
