At Plymouth Covenant Church, we love families of all kinds! This page will provide some useful resources that we think will help families navigate life and faith at home. Take a look around! We plan to update this page weekly with new ideas and resources for you to enjoy during this unique season of life.
We are so excited!!
It has been a long time since we have seen the smiling faces and felt the boundless energy of children gathered at Plymouth Covenant for ministry! We have been working hard to understand how best to prepare our classrooms and volunteers to receive your kids into the same loving, Jesus-centered environment that you are used to while following new health and safety guidelines to make our ministry spaces as safe as possible. We think we have figured out how to let kids be kids and still abide by many of the guidelines suggested by health experts. So now we are ready to regather!!
Beginning Sunday, August 2 at the 9:00am service, all of our early childhood classrooms will be open at 50% capacity: Nursery, Sprouts (2yrs), First Fruits (3yrs), and SonCatchers (4-5yrs). Families will need to register each week as space is limited. Registration will open on Thursday and close on Sunday morning each week. Simply click the button below to register.
Elementary ministry (K-5th grade) will not resume this summer.
We want to take the month of August to regather on a small scale with just early childhood to pilot our new procedures. It is our hope to be able to offer all ministries (birth through fifth grade) at more than one weekend service beginning in September. Thank you for your prayers and patience!

Adventure Together -
The MOPS Blog
Kids are wired for adventure. They are wired to explore the world around them in order to learn and grow and figure out where they belong. But for most of us lately, it has been difficult to satisfy their adventurous souls.
“Adventuring with our kids does take time, effort and occasionally saying yes to some mess. But it doesn’t have to take something extraordinary. Our kids don’t need us to dazzle them with grandiose adventures. They just need us to invite them into a new book, or into the kitchen to cook dinner, or even to crawl under the house with us. They just need us to invite them into our lives, to adventure together.”
