Hello SSBC family!
As you may have heard Governor Holcomb has released recommendations for transitioning back into our normal lives. We are happy to announce that we will be reconvening in-person services starting this upcoming Sunday May 10. We are sure that you will have questions about what this will look like and what you can expect. We want to give you some of the information that will help you and all of us stay safe and healthy as we begin to gather together again to worship the Lord in unity.
To say "Happy Easter" from one church family to another, we want to create video welcomes during our Sunrise Service on Easter morning so that you, our church members, can be blessed by one another. To be a part of this church welcome, simply record a 10-30 second video on your phone or other device, and then upload that video via the button below.
We request that you say something similar to "Happy Easter/Resurrection Day from the _______ family/house/etc." and even a little line after the video such as "We miss you all and can't wait to see you again" or "We hope you feel God's presence during this season." Say what you'd like, but we request it be no longer than 30 seconds (sometimes, shorter is better).
In order to pull this video off, we need at least 10 families to create a video. We request that all videos are sent in by Friday night at midnight.
How to send us your videos:
If you have any questions or issues, please text the church number at 574-291-1665 or email Marc Hyde at email@example.com.

Hello SSBC family,
The Coronavirus has affected every area of our lives, including our church gatherings. Last week, we still held our Sunday morning worship gathering, but also live streamed for those not able to gather. We want to live above the fear and panic, while at the same time be prudent and wise with how we handle our in-person Sunday morning gatherings. Much has changed in our city this past week and many announcements from our governing officials have been released. We have been monitoring the situation and have taken everything into account.
Moving forward, our leadership team has decided that it is best at this time to not gather on Sunday mornings until further notice.
What does this mean for you and your family on Sunday morning?
Dear South Side Family,
The days we live in are constantly changing. With the global outbreak of the coronavirus and confirmation of a case here locally, many local businesses and institutions have been cancelling services and events. We, as a church, have wrestled with how to respond to the current state of affairs. On one hand, we absolutely trust that the Lord will take care of us and no matter what happens, we’ll spend eternity with Him. So, as Christians, there is no need to panic. On the other hand, we want to be prudent and wise and not contribute to the spread of this virus. Our understanding is that while the average person might experience the effects of this virus somewhat like the flu, it can be more severe for those in high risk categories such as the elderly and those whose health is already compromised in some way. So while we don’t want to incite panic, we want to take this seriously.
With all of that in mind, here is how we plan to respond at this time:
