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.

ADULT ED:

Sunday's 9:30-10:30am:  Join us for our May series, Embodied Spirituality. In this series, presenters address intersections of physicality and spirituality. Christians too easily see the physical self as a hindrance to the spiritual self, yet as people of the incarnation, we believe that God has entered into human physicality and declared it good. Each presentation explores how, when used properly, an aspect of being embodied can lead to our spiritual wellbeing.

"Eye in the Sky," starring Helen Mirren and  Aaron Paul, is about the use of drones in modern warfare and addresses the question of what happens when innocent lives are caught in the cross hairs. After June 4, Two Thumbs Up will be on vacation for the rest of the summer, so, if you're in the mood to discuss a movie, please be sure to join us. We would love to see you on June 4!
