South Bend Friends Meeting

Elkhart Worskhip Group

South Bend Friends Meeting supports a worship group that meets at 1721 Prairie St, Elkhart, 46516.  

Meeting for Worship at 1721 Prairie St, Elkhart, 46516 on First and Third Sundays:  

On the first and third Sundays of the month, we gather for unprogrammed meeting for worship at 5:00pm, followed by a light potluck at 6:00pm. We meet at 1721 Prairie Street, across the backyard from 118 West Wolf Avenue where we previously met.

During Meeting for Worship we are generally able to offer first day school (Sunday School) for any children that might come with parents. We also provide Spanish-English interpretation as needed.

All people are welcome -- of any faith or no faith. Keeping our time away from Sunday mornings continues to be important as many of our attenders also attend services with other religious communities.

We send out update emails about once a month. To receive updates or for more info, contact:, Jason Shenk (574.238.8317), or Nick Simons (574.361.0009).


Space to park is behind (west) of 1721 Prairie Street, or in front (south) of 118 West Wolf Avenue. Overflow parking is at Pierre Moran Pavilion, off Blaine Avenue just west of Prairie Street.

Fourth Sunday - "Watershed Spirituality" Series:

The shape of each monthly gathering will vary to include conversations with farmers, engineers, city officials, and others in our watershed, listening to creation, silent time for reflection in the outdoors, and other shared activities in order to both learn more about our watershed and deepen our spirituality in a natural setting.

This series of events builds on recurring themes of spoken ministry at the Elkhart Quaker Worship Group. Like the worship group itself, this event welcomes people of all faiths or no faith.


The Elkhart Worship Group is under the care of South Bend Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), a member of Illinois Yearly Meeting.

All attenders at Elkhart are welcome to attend Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business, which takes takes place for South Bend Monthly Meeting on the 2nd Sunday of each month around noon, after Meeting for Worship.
