Welcome 

Welcome to St. Barnabas. We are a community that blends ancient mysteries with a very modern faith. As a community we are committed to participating in God's mission of reconciliation in the world. We are focused on Christ and believe that the life, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ changed everything, everywhere, for always. We are centered in prayer and worship and seek to immerse ourselves in the life of God. Join us as we seek to bring the mercy of Jesus to the world.

All are welcome. All will be encouraged. All will be challenged.
All will be transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit.

UPCOMING EVENTs

raising kids with character

Wednesday evenings, September 21st - October 26th, 6:30-7:30pm.

For eight weeks, starting on September 21, from 6:30-7:30pm at St. Barnabas, Mother Natalie will be teaching a  program called Raising Kids with Character. This is a program for parents, grandparents, and anyone who works with children and young people. We will talk about strategies for raising children with integrity, compassion, generosity, and a fully developed moral understanding. The course is free. Childcare will be provided by reservation.

blessing of Animals

Sunday, October 2nd, at 3:00 p.m.

We will gather Sunday at St. Barnabas for our annual "Blessing of the Animals" ceremony to celebrate St. Francis' Day (October 4th). St. Francis of Assisi was a gentle saint who lived in the 12th century. His love for God was expressed in caring for the poor and the sick as well as delighting in all of creation. Pet owners, friends and neighbors, with or without pets, are invited to join the joyous though somewhat noisy celebration. Any and all pets welcome (owners too)!

CGS, our Sunday morning children's program, resumed on September 11. Join us!

FAll adult ed at the mid-hour.  Sundays at 9:30 am

 Begins Sunday September 18.

For the first part of the fall we will be working with N. T. Wright's After You Believe: Why Christian Character Matters. "From the author of the acclaimed Simply Christian and Surprised by Hope comes a book that addresses the question that has plagued humans for centuries-What is our purpose? As Christian, what are we to do with that ambiguous time between baptism and the funeral? It's easy to become preoccupied with who gets into heaven; the real challenge is how we are going to live in the here and now."

Look forward to a lively discussion with Mother Natalie about the ways our commitment as Christians changes the way we look at and act in the world. Reading the book along with our discussions will make it more interesting, but is not required. The book is available on amazon.com and at Barnes & Noble. Plan on an interesting mid-hour!
