God wants to use your gifts and skills to make a difference. There are several opportunities to serve at Plymouth Church no matter where you are in the world.
SERVE OUR COMMUNITY
Lenten Service Project 2019 | Peace Packs
During Lent 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. We are answering a specific ask from Sanctuary For Families' Anti-Trafficking Initiative by creating supply-filled tote bags for women and mothers receiving services at Sanctuary for Families' offices. “Peace Packs” will be given to the clients served by Sanctuary for Families, all of whom are victims of domestic violence, trafficking, or other forms of gender based violence. The toiletries, socks, and underwear would lessen the financial burden of these necessities while allowing the women and children to feel cared for and supported.
A Mission School of Hope Breakfast | Sunday, April 28 @ 9:45 am
Join us in the Reception Room for a celebration breakfast with Rev. Charles Sagay, Director of the Mission School of Hope in Cameroon. Hear wonderful news of the school and medical facilities program.
The new abolitionists | plymouth’s anti-trafficking ministry
The New Abolitionists, Plymouth’s anti-trafficking ministry, works to free those trapped in modern day slavery. The trade in people and forced labor is a multi-billion dollar criminal industry that denies freedom to 20.9 million people around the world. And it happens here, in Brooklyn, right in our own backyard.
As a congregation and as individuals we reach out and embrace trafficking survivors through organizations that support them. We work with Restore, Sanctuary for Families, ECPAT-USA and others, and look for new projects to expand our ministry.
The Racial Justice Ministry has come together in response to God’s call to understand, address and dismantle racism in ourselves, and our society. The work this ministry does includes providing opportunities and a safe environment at Plymouth where we can openly share thoughts and feelings, and ask questions about racism, education about the history and continuing presence of personal and systemic racism and publicly advocating for racial justice in our society.
The Hope PrOgram
The HOPE PROGRAM empowers New Yorkers living in poverty to achieve economic self-sufficiency through employment and advancement. Join us and assist HOPE students by providing one-on-one mock interviews to better prepare them to enter the workforce.
The Plymouth Homeless Shelter
Each Fall, we welcome homeless members of our community, providing a safe place to sleep, a nutritious dinner, and breakfast and fellowship. Volunteer cooks prepare a meal for our guests and overnight volunteers spend the night at the Shelter.
Habitat for humanity | new york city
Habitat for Humanity New York City transforms lives by building quality homes with families in need and by uniting all New Yorkers around the cause of affordable housing. Groups from Plymouth regularly volunteer Builds and Brush With Kindness programs across the NYC area throughout the year.
