Welcome Home!

Welcome to St. Bart’s!
Thank you for visiting our website – we hope to see you Sunday morning.
As you explore our website, we hope you get a sense of our growing community and our commitment to faithfully follow Jesus. Join us Sundays so we can move from saying “Welcome” to saying “Welcome home.”

Recovery Sunday
Sunday, August 5 is our annual Recovery Sunday. The liturgy at both the 8 and 10 a.m. services will emphasize God’s gracious work in healing from addictions of all kinds—alcohol, controlled substances, food, etc. We welcome a guest preacher from Al-Anon to talk about addiction and recovery. The liturgy itself will incorporate the 12 steps.

St. Bart’s Day!
Mark your calendars because on Sunday, August 26, we’ll celebrate St. Bart’s Day with food, fun, fellowship and baptisms. If you or someone you know would like to be baptized, please talk to Father Jeff.
Please note that we will be using incense lightly at the 10 a.m. service. The incense we use is hypoallergenic and mild. The 8 a.m. service will be incense-free as always.
Finally, the St. Bart’s Assistance Bags will be assembled following both services. Look forward to seeing you all there!!!

St. Bart’s Assistance Bags
We plan to collect items for the St. Bart’s Assistance Bags from now until Aug. 19, and then assemble the bags on St. Bart’s Day, August 26.
We will be collecting the following:
• 15 oz. canned meal such as ravioli, chili, etc, in a POP-TOP cans
• 6.75 fluid oz (200 ml) juice boxes
• Granola bars
• Sandwich cracker pack (6 cracker sandwiches)
Please bring your donations to the church and place them on the wooden table in the Narthex.

Ministry Fair
On Kick Off Sunday (which is also Bishop’s Visit), September 9, your Vestry will host a Ministry Fair during Coffee Hour following the 10 a.m. service.
This will be a wonderful time to highlight the good work of the many ministries that make St. Bart’s such a lively place. It’s also an opportunity to learn more about ministries you may be less familiar with – who knows, you might even be moved to join a new ministry!
