The Missions/Outreach Committee strives to bring the love of Christ tangibly to others by providing opportunities to participate actively in outreach ventures both locally and beyond. Outreach supports programs, missions, and organizations through financial support, parish-wide appeals, and especially in hands-on ministry. The high level of personal involvement by parishioners in these efforts has long been a strength of our outreach programs.
Outreach contributions go to a number of vital local and state charities with a focus on those not adequately funded from other sources. Among these are:
Bishops Fund for Children
Inspirica - "From Homeless to Home" (previously St. Luke's Lifeworks)
Carver Center and Summer Camp
Episcopal Relief and Development
Neighbor to Neighbor Development
In addition very carefully selected Episcopal Schools overseas receive badly needed funding to educate children.
St. Barnabas is an active, growing community that provides nurture, support, & guidance to enable all its members to deepen their faith and to carry out Christ's work in the world.
