When we say “All Are Welcome” we believe we are following Jesus’ example throughout the Gospels.
All are welcome to the boundless, benevolent Presence.
“When evening came, after the sun had set, they began bringing to Jesus all those who were sick and those who were demon-possessed. And the whole city was gathered around the door. And he cured many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons.” (Mark 1:32-34)
All are welcome to the table.
“As Jesus was having a meal in Matthew’s house, many tax collectors and sinners came and ate with Jesus and his disciples. When the religious leaders saw this they said to his disciples, ‘Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?’ When Jesus heard this he said, ‘Those who are healthy don’t need a physician, but those who are sick do. Go learn what this saying means, “I want mercy not religion.” For not I came to call the righteous, but sinners.’” (Matthew 9:10-13)
All are welcome, clean and unclean, to the touch of Jesus.
“A leper came to Jesus begging him, and kneeling he said to him, ‘If you choose, you can make me clean.’ Moved with compassion, Jesus stretched out his hand and touched him, and said to him, ‘I choose. Be made clean.’” (Mark 1:40-42)
The grace and peace of Christ be with you abundantly,

At Saint Barnabas, we welcome anyone and everyone no matter where you are in your journey of life – whether you have been a Christian for a long time or you are just exploring.
Episcopalians like to move and participate in worship, so often we’ll sit for one part of the service, stand for another, and kneel in between. Prayers and songs can be participated in by call-and-response, contemplative silence, one person leading, or everyone joining together. We provide instructions to guide you in the Order of Service, but please know there is no one “right” way to worship. Part of joining Episcopal worship is receiving the gift of diverse ways of worshipping with the members of the community.
We have plenty of parking in four main areas of the church campus. As a guest, we invite you to park in the reserved spaces directly in front of the church, making it easy for you to arrive at your convenience.

At Saint Barnabas, we’re about Jesus. You’ll often hear us say that “all are welcome.” Why? Because we believe Jesus is in everyone and everything—not just in one story or one experience. Our story at Saint Barnabas stems from the Episcopal Church, the American expression of the Church of England.
The Episcopal Church has many influences, but at our core, we are a people of three things:
