Worship With Us
The institutional church has ruined sin. By preaching an angry judgemental God who dangles us over the pit of Hell, it made the concept of sin seem opposed to a God of pure love. By calling the wrong things sinful - cards, dancing and gay people - and avoiding the deep systemic sins of racism and sexism it lost the moral high ground. Now, people rightly do not listen when the church talks about sin. But the theologically crucial concept of sin needs to be redeemed. Dr. Keck will try to save sin, and if he fails he will be held accountable :)

Patriarchy is Sinful... For the Bible Tells Me So, pt. 3
What does it mean to have a “biblical” perspective on the most pressing issues of our time? If you listen to most self-proclaimed bible-based preachers and church folks, you might think the Bible only offers an ethic of exclusivity. But, what if the Bible contains a vision for creation that is so radically inclusive and subversive, it is light years ahead of us? This Sunday, come get swept up in that transformative vision as Pastor Patrick makes the biblical case for purging patriarchy from our society.

What's Happening at First-Plymouth
Rev. Dr. Jim Keck
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.
