from trauma to tranquility - lenten service project 2017
This Lenten season we continue our work for those who are enslaved and oppressed. Building on Plymouth's past to help those who are in need today, we bring God's shalom to those in our community. Our Lenten Service Project is not about giving things up, but taking things on that matter in the lives of people.

The Plymouth Homeless Shelter
Each October, we welcome homeless members of our community, and share with them home-cooked meals, a safe place to sleep, and fellowship.
the anti-human trafficking ministry
Human trafficking is a form of modern slavery. Plymouth’s anti-trafficking ministry, The New Abolitionists, works with organizations such as Sanctuary for Families and Restore NYC to help the end human trafficking here in Brooklyn and New York City.
Everyone Deserves the Chance to Work and Grow
The HOPE PROGRAM empowers New Yorkers living in poverty to achieve economic self-sufficiency through employment and advancement.
SERVE IN THE WORLD
Plymouth's Mission Offering for the month of March will go to GEMS (Girls Educational and Mentoring Services) to support their worthy and unceasing work in the field of anti-human trafficking.
GEMS' mission is to empower girls and young women, ages 12–24, who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking to exit the commercial sex industry and develop to their full potential. GEMS is committed to ending commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking of children by changing individual lives, transforming public perception, and revolutionizing the systems and policies that impact sexually exploited youth. GEMS works closely with Sanctuary for Families.
