St. Barnabas Episcopal Church

                                       

Welcome to St. Barnabas Episcopal Church. We are claiming our identity as a radically welcoming community, embracing differences as we seek to Love God, Love our Neighbors and Change the World in Jesus’ name. As Episcopalians we seek to know God’s will through Scripture, tradition and reason. Often that leads different individuals to different understandings of what God wants us to do in a particular situation. We do not expect to have all the answers, but we invite all the questions. We can disagree without being disagreeable. The Episcopal Church is part of the Anglican Communion and we claim as Episcopalians Thurgood Marshall, Colin Powell, Eleanor Roosevelt, John Steinbeck, Madeline L’Engle, Bono, Sam Waterston. William Faulkner and Tennessee Williams.

Our congregation is joyful and loving. You are encouraged to participate however you are comfortable. Christians, including children, from any denomination are welcome to receive communion. If you prefer not to receive communion, that is also appropriate. If there is something you would like to do, let us know. Don’t wait to be invited. If you are invited to do something that you really do not want to do, it is OK to say so. If each of us uses our gifts in the way we find most life-giving we will thrive as the Body of Christ in this place.

The Vestry at St. Barnabas is delighted to announce that the Rev. Alexander Martin has accepted a call to be the priest in charge at St. Barnabas. Alex is currently the Associate Rector at St. Timothy's Episcopal Church in Anderson Township Ohio (suburban Cincinnati) of the Southern Diocese of Ohio. Alex will be starting at St. Barnabas on August 20, 2018 and we expect his first Sunday of worship will be on August 26, 2018. We are excited to welcome Alex to St. Barnabas and look forward to the next chapter of our church's history under his leadership.
