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.

all saints' day eucharist:

Tuesday, November 1st, at 7:00 p.m.

The Feast of All Saints, on November 1, is an ancient Christian feast day on which we remember all of those who were so filled with the fire of the Holy Spirit and exemplified such holiness of life that they reside in the presence of God in life beyond death. On this feast we remember and hold up as examples the lives of the Saints of the Church known and unknown. The Feast is also known in English speaking countries as All Hallows' and actually begins on the evening of October 31-hence, All Hallows' Eve or Halloween. The Feast of All Saints is one of the major feasts of the Christian year. We will celebrate All Saints' Day on Tuesday, November 1st, at 7:00 p.m. This feast is one of the seven feasts of the Lord during the year.

new taizé service:

Beginning on Friday, November 4th, at 7:30 p.m. (Continuing every 1st and 3rd Friday)

An exciting new extension of our Taizé ministry begins on November 4th. Thanks to the generous leadership of Jonathan and Judi Horjus, James Keables, Fr. Bob Trask, and Cari and Richard Shields, we will now have Taizé worship on the first and third Fridays of every month. Our Taizé services are contemplative, prayerful, and filled with a quiet joy. They attract people in our community who cannot worship on Sunday, and those who find church a little "scary" for one reason or another. If you have never attended one of our Taizé services, you are invited to do so.

 

 

 

Sunday Morning Formation

Catechesis of the good shepherd

 Sundays at 9:15 a.m. Downstairs

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!
