Our community update


Fall 2021 community update
In last Sunday’s gatherings, we opened up a conversation about the place SBCC calls home. We moved into Studebaker 112 in 2017 as renters, and while we have loved our home and flourished here, we’ve also begun evaluating the wisdom of renting versus owning. Our lead pastor, Jason, took some time to talk about those questions with us, and to share a possibility that we’ve been exploring that would allow us to own a building.

Be sure to check out this video (or Sunday’s podcast episode) to hear the whole story.

We also invited feedback on this conversation, and we’d love to hear from you. You can email with any thoughts, concerns, hopes, or questions you have.

An additional update we were able to share this weekend was that we have concluded our search for the worship and arts role, and we’re excited to be able to introduce our new team member to our community in the next couple of weeks!

We’re so grateful for the opportunities ahead and for those of you on this journey with us!

Studebaker Talks is next week!

This evening of South Bend stories, coordinated in partnership with West.SB, will feature speakers from our local community and will take place in Studebaker 112. The talks will be focused on the people, ingenuity, and progress of South Bend!

Purchase your tickets here!

The schedule for the evening is as follows:

5:30 p.m. – Doors open & food for purchase from local food vendors Rico Suave and A Bite With Mee
6:30 p.m. – Main event
7:30 p.m. – After party on the west lawn of Studebaker 112 (weather permitting) with live music by DJ Chuck Fry and cash bar by Hammer & Quill

Food will be available for purchase throughout the event, and the cash bar will be open during the after party. Both the event and after party are family-friendly.

We hope you’ll plan to join us and invite a friend as we hear personal stories of immigration, community memory, neighborhood revitalization, and more.

Net proceeds from the event will be donated to the South Bend Education Foundation, whose mission is to advocate, promote, and fund initiatives to enrich learning experiences for students and staff of the SBCSC.

Tickets can be purchased and more details can be found on Eventbrite.

We hope you’ll join us NEXT FRIDAY, Oct. 8, for Studebaker Talks
