Welcome From the Vestry

St. Barnabas is an open, welcoming church and our patron saint, Barnabas, was known as “the Encourager”. We are committed to encouraging each other on our life and faith journeys and serving our broader community. All are welcomed to our church – a truly loving and diverse community of worshippers. Our parishioners hail from many different countries, and we accept all peoples regardless of race, ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation. Members of our congregation also come from a variety of faith traditions and have come to cherish the loving and accepting community at St. Barnabas. Together we learn how to love God and love our neighbors as ourselves.

We have two Sunday worship services, 8:30 am (Contemplative) and 10:30 am (with Music) and we have Sunday School classes for children from 5-12-years at 10:30 am and then the children later join us for Eucharist in the church. During the summer months of July and August, we have one Sunday worship service at 9:30 am and no Sunday School. We offer Bible Study, led by our Priest during the week as well as a layperson led bible study.

There are a variety of fellowship and other activities to bring our congregation and the community together, our favorites involve sharing food from the many countries represented in our congregation

We encourage you to sign up for our weekly newsletter, St. B’s News to learn about up coming events such as our International Food Festival. We love to see new faces at our events and welcome the whole community to come join us!
