First United Methodist Church
Plymouth, Indiana

Welcome to Our Church

But that’s the challenge of this passage, isn’t it? Grace is a free and undeserved gift. But it is also a relational gift. When Peter’s mother-in-law was made well, she was restored to wholeness. She didn’t just get over her fever and rise from bed with all the weakness and sluggishness that accompanies being sick. She was healed.
Our scriptures today encourage us to accept a different kind of invitation, an invitation to experience God’s reign in the world. God’s reign isn’t confined to any one time or place. It is present everywhere and able to know each one of us personally. But like the speed limit sign, which cannot be effective unless we obey its limitations, God’s truth, justice and peace will not prevail in the world without our willing response and cooperation.
This past year has been one of anticipation. We have overcome some serious obstacles that have been placed in our path. Last week we received our occupancy permit, and we only have a few more weeks to wait until we re-enter our Sanctuary. There is still a lot of work to be done, but it is getting done! And that is why it is so important for us to know who we are and whose we are.

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.  

Support for Ukraine

The Indiana Conference recently donated $10,000 of its Disaster Relief fund to United Methodist Committee On Relief (UMCOR) and its humanitarian relief efforts as a result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Bishop Trimble said, “I encourage our churches to give generously to help our brothers and sisters overseas. Through this disaster, we have already seen the value of our Connection, as the aid coming through is helping connect families that need shelter with United Methodists in nearby countries.”

If you or your church have been wondering about tangible ways to help those suffering amid the tragedies we have seen reported, you are encouraged to support the UMCOR response. Remember that one hundred percent of all Advance contributions go to the designated cause.

Donations can be made directly to UMCOR, Advance #982450. Or donations can be made to the Indiana Conference. Or text the word “Ukraine" to 855.389.1555.
