ADULT FAITH FORMATION
Sunday Morning In-Depth Bible Study
The In-depth Bible Study Group is more like a self-led literature class than a weekly devotional. We call it "in-depth" Bible study because we look at the layers of tradition and meaning that underlie scripture. We set aside our personal religious beliefs to embrace different landscapes of intention, obligation, and expectation. We do not disqualify any of the theological frameworks in today's world. Still, neither do we assume a single, correct approach to Biblical passages or to religion itself. This group currently meets on Zoom every Sunday at 8:15 a.m. Join using the link below.
Rev. Dr. Valerie Miller-Coleman leads this midweek look at the narrative lectionary of the Bible. It is open to all comers. Join in the discussion at any time. This group currently meets on Zoom every Wednesday at 11 a.m. Join using the link below.
Plymouth Academy is offered each fall and spring for six consecutive Wednesday nights. See below for examples of past classes.
White Privilege, Let's Talk
Led by Plymouth’s Racial Justice Team, this United Church of Christ’s adult education curriculum, White Privilege, Let’s Talk, is designed to invite member congregations to engage in safe, meaningful, substantive, and bold conversations on race.
Welcoming the Stranger: Immigrants and Refugees
in Lawrence, Kansas
Led by Plymouth's Immigrant and Refugee Alliance, this class taught about efforts occurring in Lawrence, Kansas, to make our community a safe place for recent immigrants and refugees. On March 4, 2020, we screened "Witness at Tornillo," and at successive sessions, heard first-hand from people who are fighting for justice: traveling to the border as witnesses, organizing efforts for food and other subsistence items, working within the legal system.

Sunday Fellowship Circles
After worship each Sunday, starting at 10:40 a.m., we gather in small groups via Zoom. Grab a mug of coffee or a cup of tea, and say hi. Fellowship Circles are a chance to catch up and chat about the service, the sermon, and anything else that might be on your mind. Sign up by using the link below.
Covenant Groups provide an opportunity to gather in intentional small groups to grow in faith and connect on a deeper spiritual level. These groups of 8-10 people meet twice a month, currently via Zoom, to discuss faith-based materials and come to a deeper understanding of what it means to be a Christian in today’s world. These groups are currently closed, but we will be starting up new groups in a few months if you are interested in participating!
