Reviving Justice - Join us September 19th!Worship

Part of our goal is to re-ignite action neeed to address inequalities in our communities. For many, our faith calls us to this work - to be a Good Samaritan, to feed the poor, to be the change we want to see. Worship service will be in the UCC Protestant tradition, with interfaith contribution of prayers and music. All Plymouth services are Open and Affirming and ADA Accessible to all. This will be a chance for different people with similar goals to reflect, pray, and get fired-up - together.

Conference attendees of all faiths or none are welcome to participate as much or as little in the worship service as they are comfortable.  

Workshops

Each of the five workshop tracks will focus on a different issue impacting Wisconsin and the region. Each track will feature one AM and one PM workshop led by local and national presenters.  Presenters will share concrete ways individuals and congregations can make a difference.  Whether you attend both workshops in a track is entirely up to you.
