Come join in Amped Up 2012

RUSHVILLE — Back in 2007, Plum Creek Christian Church ditched the church building for a Sunday morning and held her first outdoor worship service at Rushville Memorial Park next to the Gazebo. It was an awesome experience followed by plenty of food and activities.

From there, the service has grown each year and to put it very mildly, the people of Plum Creek really look forward to this day each year. In 2011, the service was moved to the Rushville Riverside Park Amphitheater and they found it to be a great venue. In 2011, the service honored and said thank you to community servants on the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

This year, Plum Creek organizers are excited to announce that the 6th annual outdoor worship service, called "Amped Up 2012," will be held at 10 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 16, at the Amphitheater. The service will be honoring all Rush County Schools employees as well as St. Mary's Catholic School employees and Carthage Elementary School employees for their hard work and dedication to the youth of our community. Parents are also invited to have their children participate in the children's church for ages 4 thru grade 6 during the worship service. The service will be followed by a great church meal and plenty of games and activities for all ages. Ê

The people of Plum Creek want to personally extend a warm invitation to all in our community who may not have a church family to come join us for this time of worship, food, fun and laughter. Please know that Plum Creek will be preparing the meal, so come and be their guest. They also say they will be dressed casually so this is a come as you are service.

You will just need to bring a lawn chair for each person attending. There will be handicap parking and assistance for anyone who may need help. In case of severe weather, the service will be moved to the RCHS Auxiliary Gym. One exciting note for parents is that we will be introducing our new Family Life Minister (birth-high school ministry) that Sunday. Ê

God is doing some exciting things in the hearts of the people at Plum Creek and in our community and we would love for you to be a part of it at 10 a.m. Sunday at the amphitheater.

If you have any questions, please email secretary@plumcreekchristianchurch.org or call the

church at (765) 645-5058.
