We are a worshiping community.

Regular worship, hearing Holy Scripture, and celebrating Holy Communion are the foundations of our faith and spiritual growth.

We are a learning community.  

We offer Christian faith formation (Christian Education) for all through the program year (September-June). Young children learn through parables and sacred stories in Godly Play. Older children and teens embark on the Journey to Adulthood, a youth program for spiritual formation. Adults attend the Sunday Adult Forum, where we share lively presentations and discussions on spiritual issues and current events.

We are a giving community.    

St. Barnabas’ has many outreach programs targeting needs in our own community and around the world. We give generously of our time, talents, and resources, contributing thousands of volunteer hours with open hands and open hearts.

We are a diverse community of faith.

Our church community is inclusive and welcoming to all. We invite you to experience with us the love and caring of the community that is St. Barnabas’.

We are a caring

Ubi caritas.... In Latin, caritas denotes not only love, but also dearness or affection. In the Christian tradition, caritas or charity is often used to mean love of God and of humankind. Echoing St. Paul, Thomas Aquinas called caritas “the most excellent of the virtues.” Following the ancient tradition, St. Barnabas’ Caritas Team was formed to do neighborly acts of love within our parish. The team’s ministries include taking Communion to someone’s home, providing meals, delivering altar flowers, and providing rides to church or to a doctor’s appointment for parishioners needing assistance.  Please contact the Parish Office for more information.
