MISSIONS

We are called to share love, support and accept our neighbors, locally and around the world. In gratitude for God’s love, Plymouth Park United Methodist Church members reach out to others through missions and service

If you are searching for a place where you can be real and experience genuine relationships and care, then you’ve come to the right place. Look around and find a ministry or group that fits you. We’d especially encourage you to check out our Care Groups, as these are where the life of our church really happens!

Perhaps after visiting our web site and reading this, you’re interested in learning more about us. There are lots of easy ways to check us out. Join with us at our Sunday Service. Stop by one of our community outreaches. Visit a Care Group. Come out to an Alpha Course. Touch base with one of our pastors through this web site. Or just work your way around this web site and get to know Grace Community Church.
