Plum Creek Christian Church

The most important gift; At PCCC it is our hope that after the presents were opened and the excitement subsided that you and your family took time to give thanks to God for His blessings. As a church the most important thing we celebrate at Christmas is the birth of Christ. While presents may bring temporary happiness, the gift of Jesus Christ is forever. Our time on this earth is as temporary as the presents opened on Christmas day, but because of Jesus we can look forward to spending eternity in Heaven. We only have to believe Jesus is our Savior, ask him to forgive our sins, and surrender our lives to Him. Because of Jesus Christ we can live with hope! If you don’t already have a church to call your own who can support you through life’s struggles we invite you to check us out next Sunday. We are a growing church who is focused on spiritual growth more than numerical growth. It is our sincere desire if you have let another Christmas go by without accepting the free gift of salvation that you do not wait another day. Visit with us and learn more about Jesus. May God Bless and keep you through this next year.
