Christmas Choir Begins Soon! Christmas presents a special opportunity to join the Christ Community Choir for their Christmas cantata on Sunday, Dec. 12. Weekly rehearsals begin on Thursday, Nov. 4 at 7:45pm. Please contact Brian Horne at blhorne [at] indiana.edu if interested in participating.

Church decorating:  The holidays are approaching and we’re making plans to decorate the church. Please join us for lunch and decorating after 2nd service on Sunday, Nov. 21st.  Sign up in the Gathering Space.

Reduce your use and save: We are offering a workshop that demonstrates easy ways to reduce your energy consumption – good for the environment and good for your personal budget. The workshop will be led by local energy experts who will demonstrate how this is easily achievable. Sign up to attend the workshop on Nov. 7th or watch the recording online. As part of our solar panel grant agreement, we need 75 Christ Community households to take the household energy use survey (select “Other” and not “Bloomington” as the location) and complete a commitment to reduce energy use by 25% relative to the average Indiana household.

Support missions locally, nationally, and internationally! All funding for Christ Community Missions comes from your faith-promise pledge and not from the general budget or offering. The 2022 Missions budget will be set by the amount of faith-promise pledges received by Nov. 14th this year. Please prayerfully consider pledging this fall to give to CCC missions in 2022—click here to pledge!

Please join us Thursday, November 4, at 1:30, when Bud will speak on Psalm 92:12-15 and how these verses have directed his life.

Sundays at 9:30am in Rm. 17.
