Christmas 2021 giving

Each year at Christmas, we express gratitude as a community by giving from our financial resources together toward several initiatives. Here are this year’s categories that we are hoping to fully fund by reaching our giving goal of $75,000. We’ll be talking through each of these initiatives in more detail during our gatherings this month, but if you have any questions, you can always email info@southbendcitychurch.comIf you would like to contribute to our Christmas offering, please designate your checks with “Christmas 2021” (in gathering or by mail to: P.O. Box 1578, South Bend, IN 46634) or select the “Christmas 2021 Fund” online.
