November 6, 2022

This weekend we spent some time with the idea that stories are meant to be shared. We began our time this weekend with some songs and a poem, written by one of our community members, that reminds us of the importance of the stories in our community.

Reflection
September 18, 2022
This liturgy, which was paired with this week’s teaching on God as Creator, explores the relationship with the world around us and the Divine. We spent some time reflecting through song, through reading, and by centering ourselves back on the Apostle’s Creed as we continue in our series Old Creed, New World. Music recorded live at Studebaker 112 and spoken word recorded separately. Follow along with the full transcript found at: https://bit.ly/9-18-22-creationliturgy
This week in our gatherings we introduced a new song that is based on the Apostle’s Creed and we entered into a practice called Prayers of the People. We felt it important to pray for the Church at large, individual needs, and remembrance on a day such as September 11th, as well as center ourselves on the faithfulness and love of God through all seasons of life.

Mariah Keener and SBCC Community

There was not a new sermon this weekend at South Bend City Church, but we instead took some time to reflect, meditate, and engage in a gathering designed to lead us to the table. We had the opportunity to have kids in our gatherings and for them lead us in different ways. Over 50 kids created art based on our four mantras and those pieces were displayed during a liturgy centered on those binding values that we hold. We also heard two spoken word pieces created by elementary aged students and had the opportunity to respond to the same prompts. We would love for you to join with us in this gathering by looking at a few pieces of the art, grabbing markers and paper, and engaging however best speaks to you. Our time together culminates with the Eucharist so feel free to grab crackers and juice and join us at the table.

To start our gatherings this weekend, we centered ourselves on the faithfulness of God. While we recognize that there’s a wide variety of experiences and feelings that come up when the “faithfulness of God” is mentioned, we hope to see goodness and faithfulness manifest in our lives and in the life of our community.
