Church at Home

Continuing to be a community of grace and peace for our city and the world during the season of COVID-19


This year, we've produced a special Christmas Eve film for on-demand at-home viewing. To accompany this film, we've also put together a Christmas Eve kit (one per household) that we hope will bring a little bit of what you might experience in person at an SBCC Christmas Eve gathering right into your home. These kits are free, but you do need to reserve one by filling out this form by Dec. 13.

If you'd like to help offset the cost of these kits, which will include special items such as a custom designed Christmas ornament and candles, please consider a donation to our Christmas 2020 Fund.


Please consider a donation toward our Christmas 2020 Fund if you'd like to contribute toward any of this year's giving initiatives:

Church community (Christmas Eve film; Christmas Eve at-home kits; support for our general fund through COVID)

City (Advent prayer & reflection space; support for foster care and adoption)

World (Church global network; Telos peacemaking scholarships)

You can visit our giving page to donate online or mail a check to P.O. Box 1578, South Bend, IN 46634. Be sure to designate your giving to "Christmas 2020 Fund."

We are grateful for your continued generosity toward our joint efforts to be a community of grace and peace for our city and the world!


From Nov. 30 to Dec. 24, we will open up our space at Studebaker 112 for Advent prayer & reflection open-house style during the following hours:

Monday-Friday 11 a.m.-1 p.m

Monday-Thursday 4:30-6:30 p.m.

Our prayer & reflection time will be centered around Scott Erickson's book "Honest Advent" (you can order a copy here) and will feature images from the book as well as scripture.

If you pre-ordered a copy of "Honest Advent" from us, you can pick it up during these prayer & reflection hours. Donations to our Christmas 2020 fund to help cover costs can be made here.

We will observe recommended masking and social distancing protocol and limit capacity.

There will be a separate Advent experience for kids as well utilizing this reading plan!

Check out our Advent playlist that will accompany the prayer & reflection experience - found on Spotify and YouTube.
