130th Annual Convention of The Episcopal Church in Colorado

Each year, representatives from around our diocese gather for worship, workshops, and community as well as to review and discuss issues, policies, and structures.

October 12-14, 2017 in Grand Junction
Two Rivers Convention Center, 159 Main Street, Grand Junction
The Convention will begin with the Eucharist, Thursday, October 12 at 7:00 pm at Two Rivers Convention Center in Grand Junction and conclude in the mid-afternoon, Saturday, October 14.

Theme:
Our Convention theme this year is “Engaging the World in Love: Reconciliation and Grace.” In our Baptismal Covenant, one of the simplest questions is also one of the most profound and difficult ones: Will you seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbors as yourself?  At the very foundation of our faith, we make a promise, “I will with God’s help.” We are excited to welcome to Grand Junction The Most Reverend Katharine Jefferts-Schori, former Presiding Bishop and Primate of the Episcopal Church; the Rev. Canon Mark Stevenson, Director of Episcopal Migration Ministry; Samuel Mampunza, MD, PhD, Vice President, Protestant University in the Congo; and Soul to Soul with the Rev. Tawana Davis and the Rev. Dr. Dawn Riley Duval. Speakers will also be giving workshops.

to Oct 29

Quest Youth Retreat

Quest youth retreats help our young people grow deeper in their relationship with God.  Quest incorporates general sessions led by entertaining and powerful speakers, interactive small group time, an engaging band, and plenty of community-building activities to help foster spiritual growth throughout the weekend and beyond.  No two Quest events are the same.  Youth are encouraged to explore, ask questions, and dive into each theme in hope that the weekend will help them grow individually in their faith and corporately as a member within the Church.

Fall Quest 2017

Dates: October  27-29, 2017

Registration opens:  September  1

Theme:  Hagios, Sanctus, Saint–Defined by God

For more information, contact Tina Clark, our Family Minister.

Alternative Market

Alternative Market

Every year the Outreach Committee of St. Barnabas sponsors an Alternative Market.  This is a 'market' where different neighborhood non-profit agencies set up tables to represent their missions, and provide price lists of items they need to help their members and clients.  Parishioners who want to give Christmas gifts to others are then given the opportunity to 'purchase' items, by way of a donation to the organization.

The organization then gives the donor a card, who then can give it away as a gift to a loved one - a donation to worthy local non-profit organizations.

Example of Card to purchaser:

A donation of $15.00 for baby formula was given to the Gathering Place in your name, through the St. Barnabas Alternative Market
