Rushville Republican

---- — Plum Creek Christian Church

I need a check-up!

Nobody really enjoys going to the Dr. for a check-up. We’re afraid of something the Dr. might find that needs attending to. For the months October and November, Plum Creek Christian Church will begin a series on “The Marriage Check-Up.” We’ll be covering communication, consideration, compromise, courtship and commitment.

The best about these areas are Christ. He needs to be the center of your marriage, children, in all relationships!

We would love to see you here at PCCC this Sunday. A check-up is what we all need.
