Jacqueline Kronk and Jason Miller

As we prepare to move to the Tribune and pursue our vision of creating a place for the people, we’ve curated four weeks of conversations with local leaders and experts about different needs and experiences that shape the people of our city.

This week, we learned from Jacqueline Kronk, CEO of Boys and Girls Clubs of St. Joe County. Not only did we learn more about the challenges facing K-12 kids and their families, but we also announced a new partnership with the Boys and Girls Clubs, with programs for kids launching at the Tribune this summer.

Learn more about the Boys and Girls Clubs or take a step into volunteering with them.

Ken Oakes and Jason Miller

As Lent leads us into Holy Week, we prepare for a fresh encounter with the paradox of a God who suffers with us. This year, Ken Oakes (SBCC member and Professor of Systematic Theology at Notre Dame) will be teaching a Thursday night class called “God, Suffering, Evil.” The class will include an exploration of the book of Job, James Cone’s The Cross and the Lynching Tree, the movie Inside Out, and Nicholas Wolterstorff’s Lament for a Son.

To learn more about the class, check out this conversation with Ken and our lead pastor, Jason. The class will meet from 7-8:30pm on Thursday nights during Lent (2/15-3/28) at Studebaker 112.

Registration for the class is now open!

Since the founding of South Bend City Church, we’ve focused on the practice of generosity as one way of celebrating Christmas, with gratitude for God’s generosity to us in the gift of Jesus. This year’s practice includes three invitations to give: (1) to support the church’s general fund and sustain our regular ministries, (2) to give to the Tribune project to ensure that we are able to cross the finish line on the phase 1 renovation, and (3) a special Christmas offering. As with past years, this Christmas offering goes to support objectives in line with our calling as a community of grace and peace for our city and the world.

In this episode, we speak with leaders and stakeholders who represent the causes we’ll be supporting this Christmas. To give to our Christmas Offering, The Tribune Project, or our general fund, click below and make sure the correct fund is selected.
