Whether you're looking for a church community to call home or visiting from out of town, we welcome you exactly the way you are! Here's what to expect when you join us for any of our worship services (please see the sidebar at right for service times).
While we are a casual and progressive congregation, our Sunday morning services follow the liturgical tradition of the Episcopal Church.
Children of all ages are welcome at all services. There are 'busy baskets,' books, and worship boxes available in the sanctuary and a soft space on the north side of the sanctuary for little ones who need to move. We also offer nursery care and Godly Play (a biblical story telling experience) for ages three through eight during the 9:30 service. Children join the congregation at the exchange of the peace and stay for communion. The Nursery and Classrooms are located upstairs. A greeter will be happy to assist you.
At St Barnabas, all are welcome to receive communion, regardless of age or denomination. If you've not been baptized, or would simply prefer it, just cross your arms over your chest to receive a blessing. It's also completely acceptable to remain seated during communion.
Following our service, we gather for refreshments and fellowship in the hall right outside the sanctuary. Please join us; we want to get to know you! From 11:00 - 12:00, we offer opportunities for spiritual exploration and growth for youth (grades 7-12), and adults.
St Barnabas has a long history of advocacy in a variety of social justice issues. In the words of our Baptismal Covenant, we wish to seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving our neighbors as ourselves; to strive for justice and peace among all people; and to respect the dignity of every human being. We are a casual, friendly, and loving congregation, and we look forward to meeting you!
