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.”

Love Lent Much? – Lenten Discussion Group
Lent is a time for introspection and self-reflection, a time to reflect on the core of what it means to live a Christian life. And nothing is more central to that life than loving – loving with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind. For people of faith, love is not an abstract or feel-good concept. For Christians of the Anglican persuasion, love traditionally means an urgent call to radically incarnate love in how we relate to God, our neighbor, and ourselves.
Join Father Mike in a discussion group based on Loving with All Your Heart, Soul, Strength, and Mind, Sunday mornings, 11:15 to Noon in the Church Library. Presented in six sessions, this group provides mutual support for spiritual growth as we journey through Lent.

Join us Wednesday nights in Lent for Evensong at 6:00 p.m. (March 7, 14, and 21). Evensong combines the prayers from Evening Prayer and Compline into one beautiful worship experience. Lent is a time to stop and work on our relationship with God, either by giving up something that distracts us from God or by adding a discipline that draws us closer to God.
