A monthly publication of
Plum Creek Christian Church

VOLUME 44 . ISSUE 9 . SEPT 2019
When something good happens, we talk about it. We get the word out. We declare and announce and report it. The ancient word for reporting good news is gospel. “The gospel” is the good news of Jesus Christ. Here is the gospel in one sentence: Through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, God has made the good life of His kingdom available to sinners like you and me. In the Bible, each of the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) tells the true story of Jesus from a unique perspective, and by studying them together in chronological order, we’ll witness the story of Jesus as the events actually unfolded. This study will provide what we always need most: a clear vision of Jesus.
Join us for worship every Sunday at 9 am or 10:45 am

In partnership with Plum Creek Kids and Plum Creek Students, we are beginning a special needs ministry. We are looking for teens and adults who have a passion for loving on and showing compassion to kids with special needs. To learn more or see how you can get involved please email james.jenkins@pendleton.kyschools.us
Join the PC Tutoring Team! Tutors meet with the same child each week to build relationship and help with reading. Our curriculum is super easy to use (you just listen to a child read). After reading the book, tutors play games with their child. Children are in grades K-5. Tutoring takes place at Northern Elementary in Butler every Tuesday from 5-6 pm.

Preschool families are invited to join us for a night of creation fun as we take a special look at each of the seven days of creation. You and your kids will get to discover and explore each of the seven days through interactive and hands-on fun. We'll have guests from the Cincinnati Children's Museum as well as the Planetarium display from Woodmen of the World. You won't want to miss this night of wonder and discover as we learn more about how God made everything. Free Snappy's pizza will be provided for dinner!

Every moment matters with kids. And just one caring and loving adult can change a child's life. As a church we have the potential to influence the next generation for Christ, but it takes a team of volunteers.
This fall we will be launching our SAY YES 2020 Campaign , where we'll be looking for adults and teens to help fill the 200 serving roles needed to support our Kids Ministry in 2020. Serving commitments range from one time, to once a month, to being a consistent small group leader for kids. We have serving spots working with children on Sunday mornings, helping support and pull off our events for our neighbors and also in helping prepare for when kids arrive on Sunday. Help us impact the next generation for Christ by saying yes to Plum Creek kids! For questions, contact dylan@plumcreek.org
Beginning this fall we'll be launching a Plum Creek Kids Podcast just for parents! These podcasts will be hosted by Children's Minister, Dylan Bjorklund, but will also include guest speakers and parents within our church. We'll be talking about issues facing homes, kids and families today. We'll seek to provide you with helpful tools and resources to make the most of the time you have now.

Because the right kind of friends - the real kind - are the best kind.
