Join Us for Worship Sunday at 8:00 & 10:30 am

April 9, 2017: Palm Sunday

S20170409-PALM 01

The Gospel for this Sunday is

Matthew 21:1-11 (Click Here to Read)

Exalted by God

This week's liturgy begins with a palm procession, commemorating Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Quickly the tone of the service changes as we meditate upon Jesus’ passion and death. Because this story is so central to our faith, we hear Matthew’s account of the passion today and John’s version on Good Friday. Though Jesus is obedient even unto death on the cross, he is exalted by God. We gather to remember his offering for the life of the world, and to be fed by his life-giving mercy. This holy week will culminate in the celebration of the Three Days of Jesus’ suffering, death, and resurrection.

Moving From Charity To Justice: A Workshop In Faithful Advocacy

WI Faith Voices for Justice

Across time and place, religious leaders and people of faith have been inspired and impelled to speak out in the public square. To help us live out our commitment to faith-based social justice advocacy, Wisconsin Faith Voices for Justice and Plymouth Congregational UCC present Moving From Charity to Justice: A Workshop in Advocacy. This two-session workshop introduces participants to the challenges and opportunities for congregational engagement in advocacy; explores the many forms advocacy can take, and trains participants in the nuts and bolts of advocacy – how to write a Letter to the Editor or an Op-ed; how to conduct an advocacy campaign; how to present testimony before a school board or a legislative committee hearing; and how to make a lobby visit to your elected official.

Session 2: Thursday April 6th, 7:00-9:00 pm – Nuts & bolts of advocacy; effective letter writing. (you are welcome to attend even if you missed the first session.)

Plymouth Congregational UCC, 2401 Atwood Avenue (corner of Ohio Avenue); Street parking, except handicap parking available behind the church (accessed by Somers Avenue)

Free (free-will offering for WI Faith Voices for Justice welcomed)
