Plymouth Church & Pommern
The Plymouth Church in Framingham, United Church of Christ, has performed outreach internationally for decades. The Africa Mission Project, our most recent and largest scale effort, took shape in 2005 when Bob Ahearn, who had worked for several years in Tanzania, East Africa, introduced the Rev. Peter Cook to his friends in the remote village of Pommern.
Since that time our cross cultural relationship has grown and flourished, highlighted by a 2007 mission trip which brought 17 Plymouth Church adults and youth to the region and by a visit to Framingham from the Pommern Village Choir in 2008. Several individual trips have been made in subsequent years.
In the 11 minute video below you can see the results of our work with the village of Pommern and its surrounding communities.
Our goals of the African Exchange Group:
- Help provide access to a reliable source of fresh water to improve the health and economic well-being of the people.
- Improve the quality and accessibility of education.
- Promote the cultural, musical, and spiritual exchange between the members of Plymouth Church and the people of Pommern, Tanzania and the surrounding areas.
Our connection with the people of Pommern and the surrounding area demonstrates that we can make a difference in the world. Your continued support will help us make those dreams into a reality. We have only just begun. Won’t you join us…. To learn more, please peruse the web site and to make a donation, click on our Donate page.
