UPCOMING EVENTS
Nov. 13: Advent Craft Night (Optional) from 6:00-7:30 p.m. in the gym. All are welcome to assemble an Advent ornament set. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, aunt/uncle, friend, or neighbor, this simple craft can be a valuable tool for any family to use in focusing on Jesus during the Christmas season. Children 7 years or older may accompany an adult if they wish to help, and then go to class. One per family; please register by November 12 for adequate supplies to be available.

Nov. 20: Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace Live! The livestream of Financial Peace Live is a FREE one-night-only event, broadcast live across the country on Nov. 20 at 6:45 pm at Clear Creek. Dave Ramsey and Chris Hogan will teach you the seven-step plan that has helped nearly 6 million people get out of debt, build wealth, and retire with dignity. Sign up needed if you plan to attend. Register online or call the office.

Through Nov. 22: Thanksgiving Outreach. Each year Clear Creek reaches out to community families needing Thanksgiving dinner and groceries. This is an opportunity to share the love of Jesus and make connections with families who may not have a church home. If you know a family needing a Thanksgiving meal, contact the church office with their contact information as soon as possible. If your family or group would like to deliver Thanksgiving to a family, please let the office know ASAP. Get your grocery list at the bins in the lobby and place groceries in the bins through Nov. 22. Deliver Thanksgiving food boxes on Nov. 24-25.

Nov. 26:  Chili Pie Supper:  Bring your favorite chili and dessert and join us for a meal, connection, and a time of worship and thanksgiving starting in the gym at 6:00 pm.  (No Wednesday activities at the building Nov. 27.)

Get Connected.  Taking your next step to become more like Jesus is best done with others who are on the same journey. If you don't have a dedicated group of people to walk alongside you, stop by Next Steps and we will help you find a small group.

Introduce them to our church family and lead them to the life-changing relationship we have in Jesus. If you'd like to know more, contact the church office.
TEACHING
Nov. 17: What Are You For? Our City (Acts 19; Jeremiah 29:7) As Christians, we are for Jesus and for people, but we are also for a place. We are for our beautiful city because it is part of God’s creation. But, what does it mean to be “for a city”? This Sunday, we will pull back the curtain on how we are for our city and how you can join in.
