Women’s Ministry Book Club: 1st SDA Book Club South Bend – I have wanted to start a book club but had trouble with a meeting day and time, so I started a Private Facebook group. This way no one has to leave their house to participate! I would like to start with the book “Your Beautiful Purpose” by Susie Larson. The book is available on Amazon for $1.49-$14.99. Invites to join the Private group have been sent to those I know and if you would like to join send me a notice through Facebook (Winona-Baugues-Hays) and I will add you to the group. Book suggestions are welcome and we will vote as a group for the next book. Looking forward to seeing if, and how, this works—it’s new to me, too! –Winona Hays, Women’s Ministry

Visitor’s Meal: Each Sabbath, we provide a meal for our visitors and out-of-town guests, and we welcome our members from afar, those living alone, and our youth. We are happy to see more members wanting to stay but this is causing a slight problem, and we are asking our members who wish to stay for the visitor’s meal to bring food so there is plenty of food for everyone. You can also check with the church office to see what can be contributed to the menu that has been planned for the week.

Church Directory: Thank you for stopping to get your photos taken. We have put away our photo station, but would still like to get everyone’s photo. You can submit your photos to the church e-mail:

Snow Removal: The church is looking for someone to clear snow and ice from the church and school sidewalks during the winter. The church will provide the equipment and materials for the job. This is a paid position. If you are interested, please contact the church office.

SBJA Openings: Are you looking for a great Christian education for your child? Consider South Bend Jr. Academy. There are still some openings in grades K-8. Contact the school office at (574) 287-3713 or e-mail

Special Kindergarten Rates: Don’t let finances keep you from experiencing a great education! Your South Bend Junior Academy offers Kindergarten tuition at only $300 for members, $333 for non-members.
