First United Methodist Church
Plymouth, Indiana

Welcome to Our Church

Scott and I have been packing, filling boxes and doing our best to be ready when the movers arrive.  (Since he’s been off preaching at another church for the last 6 weeks, I am again admitting to God and you and everybody that Scott has done the lion-share of that work and I want him to know that I’ve told you that, and am not taking even half credit for all the work he’s done). 
I know, it’s an odd text for today, isn’t it?  Not one we would expect on the Sunday before Thanksgiving, as we’re thinking ahead to Advent and beginning our preparations for Christmas. We’re thinking about giving thanks. Maybe we’re thinking Baby Jesus. But today’s scripture takes us to one of the last conversations Jesus will have before he’s crucified.
Troubled Israel, as the books of Samuel begins, is waiting. Israel is portrayed as a marginal community. Threatened externally by the power and the pressure of the Philistines, Israel is politically weak and economically disadvantaged. But there is also an internal, moral and spiritual dimension to Israel’s trouble.  By the end of the book of Judges, Israel is shown to be a community in moral chaos, engaged in brutality, and betrayed by undisciplined religion.

Upcoming Events

We will begin worshiping at the United Church of Christ, 321 N. Center Street in Plymouth, on Palm Sunday, March 28 at 8:30 a.m. for in-person worship. On Thursday, April 1st, we will have a Maundy Thursday worship service at 7 p.m. On April 4, Easter Sunday, we will worship at 8:30 a.m. at the United Church of Christ, and have a second service at Centennial Park in the Freyman Shelter (behind the tennis courts) at 10:30 a.m. Please bring your own chairs to the park and prepare to mask and socially distance for all services. Worship will be live-streamed (except for park) and available via FaceBook and YouTube as we have been doing, for those who are not ready to gather in person.  


It has come to our attention that an email is circulating, supposedly from Paster Toni, asking for money or for you to purchase gift cards. This is not from Pastor Toni! Please do not respond, do not send any information or money, and delete the email from your computer! It would not hurt to run a virus scan on your computer if you have received an email like this.

Please help spread the word so no one is hurt by this scam. If you have any questions, please call the church office.
