High School Guatemala Mission Trip

I have participated in mission trips for the past 23 years and have led them for the past 10 years, but in all these years I have never experienced one as powerful and moving as this trip to Guatemala.  I witnessed what an incredible, life-changing experience it was for each of the 22 youth & adults who willingly stepped out of their comfort zones to serve others.  We went to build four houses, and we did, but what we gained was a greater sense of community, a deeper understanding of the culture of Guatemala and a love for people who exemplify what it means to be welcoming to a stranger.  I cannot thank the congregation enough for all the support and prayers that made it possible to help our youth learn, grow and deepen their faith through serving others in such an amazing way.  I know that what will come out of this experience will continue to be seen in our youth for years to come.   -Pastor Hollie

VBS @ First-Plymouth

As always, VBS continues to be a week of energy, excitement and fun for so many of our children here at First-Plymouth. It’s such a joy to see the ways in which kids begin to feel a deeper connection to the church, to their faith and to God. Thank you to the more than 40 volunteers who made it possible for over 120 kids to come learn & grow!
