Sharing Our Space

Over the years Sunnyside has provided meeting space to various community groups.

In 2019, Piedra Viva Mennonite Church, an emerging Spanish-language congregation, began using the Sunnyside facilities for Sunday afternoon worship services, fellowship, teaching English and other activities. They are now also a member of Indiana-Michigan Mennonite Conference.

La Posada Immigrant Aid is a new organization that provides immigration resources to Elkhart County communities with written materials, legal counsel and referrals. The center’s offices are located in the Sunnyside building. La Posada is rooted in the Anabaptist Mennonite belief that Christians should welcome newcomers and immigrants.
