First Christian Church, Bloomington, IL

November 11, 2016

With profound apologies to Illini and Indianapolitans, I am forever transposing the Bloomingtons in those two states. So my ongoing confusion of the two brings me back again and again to the database to see if a “new” example may already be listed. Yesterday’s accidental encounter with this postcard image took me there and to google, as well.

First Christian church today is a more modern expression than this. Its configuration is proper for an A-A listing, but the missing building and a significant lack of on-line history provide little confirming information. The windows are very “G.W.Kramer,” while the tower is not.

While on google.maps, however, I ran across another example. Crossroads Community Church at Roosevelt and Union on the city’s near northwest side. It was clearly built for a different denomination, yet to be determined.
