South Bend City Church is a place of grace and peace for our community and the world.  While SBCC exists for both our in-person and online communities, city context is an essential part of who we are as a church.

Loving our city well starts with becoming the best neighbor we can be.

We commit to helping SBCC members better see and respond to their community. There is power when everyone comes together around a shared purpose. We love to unite our attention, energy, and resources for our city, especially those most vulnerable.

For our world, our desire to be good neighbors is not limited by fences or borders.

 We seek God’s goodness across the globe by prioritizing peace-making in a world in conflict. We partner with the Telos Group, an organization that helps form and equip communities of peacemakers to help heal intractable conflict.  Peacemaking pilgrimages are becoming part of our global involvement.

In addition we are developing a mutual learning relationship with Redeemer Central of Belfast Northern Ireland.  We support The Long Table initiative, and have lots to learn from our friends there about open doors and long tables.
