Saturday is the New Sunday

Marathon Weekend

Avoid the traffic on Lincoln Marathon Sunday. Join us for our special festival worship service on Saturday, May 4, at 5:30pm. We will celebrate with special music by the Plymouth Choir and the Orchaband, sermon by Dr. Jim Keck, and the Blessing of the Athletes. Of course, our regular Sunday morning services will also be held at both First-Plymouth and First-Plymouth East at the regular times.

Blessing of the Athletes

First-Plymouth will offer an ecumenical “blessing of the athletes” ceremony on Saturday, May 4, at 5:30pm, based on the Boston Marathon’s blessing ceremony, to honor all athletes and volunteers participating in the Lincoln Marathon. This brief service will be filled with inspirational music and positivity that is not to be missed by non-runners as well. The blessing will be held in the Sanctuary within our Saturday worship service.


Spring Giving Tree

Visit our table in the hallway on Sundays through May 19th, and select an item to purchase for a local non-profit (CEDARS Home, Mourning Hope, Yazda-Yazidi Cultural Center and Community Action Partnership of Lancaster & Saunders Counties).
