South Bend City Church is a dream that’s just beginning. Our lead pastor, Jason Miller, began sharing this dream with friends in late 2015. In the past few months, we’ve been building a team, looking for a place to call home, and gathering to experiment with different ways of worshiping, serving, and following Jesus together.

    12.3 [LITURGY] Advent Week 1: Hope In the Waiting

    During this season, we are taking some time in our gatherings to follow the liturgical calendar and spend some time in the traditional themes of Advent. This weekend we centered ourselves on the theme of hope through song, reading, and candle lighting. Wherever you are over the next month we hope that this liturgies offer the time to pause and reflect this holiday season.

    12.3 [TEACHING] The Paradox of Advent: Waiting and Waking Up (wk 1)

    12.3 [TEACHING] The Paradox of Advent: Waiting and Waking Up (wk 1)

    Jason Miller - Advent poses a question for us: what are you waiting for? But hidden in that question is a paradox, because sometimes it confronts us with the powerlessness we face in our unfulfilled longings, and sometimes it calls us to step into our power and make a difference. During this season of Advent, we'll lean into that paradox through teaching and practice.

    11.28 [CONVERSATION] Christmas Offering 2023

    11.28 [CONVERSATION] Christmas Offering 2023

    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.

    11.19 [GATHERING] Practices of Gratitude

    11.19 [GATHERING] Practices of Gratitude

    Jason Miller and Mariah Keener - In this third week of series on gratitude, we bring the two weeks of teaching into practice. In this gathering, instead of hearing a teaching, we spent some time in three movements — Notice/Capture, Reflect, and Express — in an effort to practice gratitude individually and collectively.
    If you’re a long distance community member, or a local one who wasn’t able to join us, we hope that you jump in to these practices with us. Our time will culminate with the practice of Eucharist so make sure to have some form of bread or cracker and wine or juice with you.

    11.12 [LITURGY] Gratitude and Honesty

    11.12 [LITURGY] Gratitude and Honesty

    In this weekend's liturgy, we offered time to offer gratitude to the Divine as well as get honest about the ways in which gratitude might be counterintuitive to our current circumstances. We hope that this time of reflection, reading, and singing offers a space to get honest and, if it's aligned with our hearts, to be moved to gratitude.

This Teaching Has Undone Years of Harm...

Growing up in the church, I encountered countless sermons that wounded me and left me with greater shame and insecurity. When I started listening to these teachings, all of that started to slowly heal.

Love the heart of this ministry!!

I’ve been in church all my life. I live the Body of Christ and I love His Word. There have been only a handful of speakers that I’ve heard along the way that have impacted my thought life the way Jason Miller has. I’m so thankful to call him my pastor and I’m grateful I get to hear him almost every week. I thank God for the gift in the earth in Jason.

Besides that, the rest of the staff and the committed members carry that same heart. A Love for God and His Word and a love for all people of the world.
