Oct. 10 Fall Break Schedule: On Sunday, Oct. 10th, the following programs will observe a fall break:  Adult Community Groups, elementary, youth, Connexion.  Programs will resume on Oct. 17th.

Wheeler Mission Clothes Drive Each semester, our elementary kids focus on people or organizations who serve others. This semester, they are focusing on Wheeler Mission right here in Bloomington and invite you to join them in donating clothing! Donations of new socks and underwear and new/gently-used clothing, shoes, coats, or jackets will be accepted Oct. 17-24. Collection bins will be located in the Gathering Space.

“Why Christianity Is Good for Science” Trinity Fellowship lecture by Dr. Ted Davis and panel discussion, Oct. 29 at 7:00pm. How do we understand the relationship between Christianity and science? Warfare? Partnership? Dr. Davis suggests the Christian faith fill in the picture of the world coming from the sciences. Christianity, according to Dr. Davis, can help us achieve a deeper understanding of the world and how we should understand it. Biblical faith offers both a powerful motive for investigating nature and a foundation for the very possibility of scientific knowledge. Visit TFIU.org.

Baptism Sunday, Oct. 31: If you are interested in being baptized during worship on Oct. 31 or in talking with a pastor about baptism, please contact the church office to schedule a chat.

Women’s ACG: “Great Is Thy Faithfulness: A Hymn Study”. Ladies, join us for an eight-week study on some of the church’s classic hymns.

Beginning Oct. 17 at 9:30am in Rm. 17.
