Since March of 2022, a collaboration of church and school staff and elders has been meeting to discern the best path for expanding our space for kids’ ministry, student ministry and school operations. We have been working diligently with T&W Church Solutions to turn our needs into a workable site plan and floor plans for a new building expansion.
This expansion will include 9 new classrooms to allow us to reach the goal of providing 2 classrooms per grade while maintaining specials rooms for Music, Art, STEAM, and Computer classes. The design also includes an extra-large group room that will provide the school with a spacious lunchroom and the church with a large group gathering room for Sunday morning children’s ministry. The church youth program will gain a large, flexible space upstairs for worship, recreation and hanging out. A new teacher's lounge, conference room, 3 offices, 4 bathrooms and storage space are included in the expansion, and intervention spaces are built into the plans for children to receive additional help during the school day. Outside, an amphitheater and shelter will be added to accommodate outdoor worship, educational and recreational gatherings and will open to the expanded playground space for both church and school use.
We are very excited about the potential that this new space brings for the future.
There are many ways to give to the BEYOND campaign. One of the most important gifts you can make is the gift of prayer. Pray that the Lord will continue to grow His kingdom here as we faithfully grow BEYOND these walls. That he will continue to unify the church and the school, and that the children and families who come through our doors will come to know and love Him. We encourage you to read through the purpose, needs, and details for the BEYOND campaign, pray about your participation, and join us as God guides you.
Questions? Fill out this inquiry form and someone will contact you shortly.
School families and community members can give a one-time gift or automated reoccurring pledge online via credit, debit or EFT bank transfer through the school's online giving form . If you would like to give via check to avoid credit card processing fees, you may bring it to the school office or mail to 530 W Church Lane, Bloomington, IN 47403 with "BEYOND" in the memo.

details that need to be taken care of in this building project; city planning, building permits, green areas,
water system, etc. The list is numerous. Please be in the details of everything. Let permits and such be
granted with ease and as we work with city planning and a multitude of other people, may the people of
Clear Creek Christian Church and School be a light for you.

We thank you for this BEYOND project and how it will continue to tell the next generation how wide, long, high, and deep your love is for us.
We thank you for YOUR mighty power that You have given to us and that is at work WITHIN us. May we see that power through this project - that this has not come from anything WE have done but this has all been YOU.

Joshua 3:5 Joshua told the people, “Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you.”
God, it’s amazing how you use us – imperfect as we are to carry out your will in our lives. How frustrated you must be with us sometimes as we are so self-centered. May we consecrate ourselves and ask for forgiveness for those things we do and think that are opposite of your ways. Transform us by renewing our minds. May we keep you front and center always. Every day. Every minute.
