Meet our new Director of Kids’ Ministry!

Karen Grant: Director of Kids’ Ministry

Karen Grant has lived in Indiana pretty much her whole life, calling Michiana home for the last 20 years. She joins the SBCC staff with 14 years of ministry experience. This includes leading children and family ministry, summer camps, and international youth mission trips at Clay Church. Karen also has been a mentor and team leader with Transformation Ministries in South Bend for five years. She has a B.A. in Bible & Ministry from Bethel University.

Karen is married to Tom and they have grown children: a daughter, two sons, and a daughter-in-law. Calling themselves empty nesters, they can travel for more than an overnight, plan date night for any night of the week, and spend evenings on the back porch til well past dark.

Karen is always up for a good cup of coffee! If she’s in her art studio, where she is working on painting a series of portraits, her brush more than likely ends up rinsed in her coffee cup. And yes, she drinks it anyway.

You can connect with Karen via email or on Instagram and Facebook!

Help us setup at our next gathering!

We’ll see you for our next gathering at Four Winds Field on Sunday, August 9, at 6:30 p.m. Please remember to wear a mask and stay socially distant so we can keep each other safe. We will be setting up prior to the gathering at 5 p.m. and could use a few extra sets of hands. If you’re able to help us out setting up our stage and loading in equipment, please email us! 

SBCC Podcast: A look back

Important things are worth revisiting. This week, instead of pressing forward with new teaching via video and podcast, we wanted to pause to take the time to remember some of the things we have learned together that have been most influential to who we are as a church. This may be the first time you’ll hear the deeper context of our mantras or what we believe about some of the teachings in the Bible, or it may be a chance to be reminded of some of these foundations teachings for us as a community. If you get a chance, listen to one or more of these podcasts from past gatherings:
7.2.17.19 [TEACHING] – Bible [rehab] – Context
7.9.17 [TEACHING] – Bible [rehab] – Community
7.16.17 [TEACHING] – Bible [rehab] – Tension in the text
7.23.17 [TEACHING] – Bible [rehab] – Jesus-centered book

8.26.18 [TEACHING] A Sacred Conversation: Sexuality

1.13.19 [TEACHING] – Mantra – Sushi, Not Fish Stew
1.20.19 [TEACHING] – Mantra – Everyone an Icon
1.27.19 [TEACHING] – Mantra – Practices, Not Performances
2.3.19 [TEACHING] – Mantra: Fields, Not Factories
