At Plum Creek we don't have a student ministry, we are a student ministry. We ask our students to participate in the local church the same way as their parents - by serving, giving, inviting and growing in their own relationship in Christ. Join us as we start 2020 with a takeover of the Sunday morning. Jesus sees you as you are and loves you and wants a relationship with you. Join us as we dive into that idea together!

Have questions about Plum Creek? Want to know how you can get involved? Want to make this big place a little smaller? Join us for this one session conversation in a relaxed environment where we address who Plum Creek is, what we're about, and what you can expect from Plum Creek. We also take time to answer specific questions you might have. Lunch and child care are provided.
In the book of Matthew, we read an interesting statement about Jesus: “And he did not do many miracles there because of their lack of faith.” What does that mean? What is the relationship between faith and God’s work in our lives? That’s a very important question. Join us as we continue our journey through the life of Jesus, and discover what God has to say about our faith, our doubts, and what He wants to do in our lives.
Join us for worship every Sunday at 9 am or 10:45 am
Full programming is available for kids from birth - 5th grade
Faith Conversations for the last three years has a been a 2-week session for parents. However, our Kids Ministry is now making this teaching and resource available to you on a flashdrive. This will be available beginning January 26th, 2020. This now "ready-to-use" resource is great for families who are beginning the conversation with their kids about becoming a Christ-follower and also for creating a rhythm of faith conversation in your home.

SUPERSTART! is a high-energy weekend event in which 4th & 5th graders can learn and grow in their relationships with friends, leaders and most importantly, God. And this year's SuperStart! tour is about finding hope through God's promises in those moments where it feels like the cards are stacked against us. Preteens will learn that when they trust God and hold tightly to His promises, they’ll discover the hope that can carry them through any circumstance and into the abundant life of a Kingdom worker. Knowing that changes everything. It’s a Game Changer.

We're all chasing something in life. When we choose to chase one thing, it often means we have to stop chasing something else. The same is true when following Jesus. In order to truly chase after Him, we have to stop chasing some other things along the way.
