WHAT TO LOOK FOR:

MAKING ALL THINGS NEW : Blessed to be Together

PLEDGE DRIVE 2022

Join us as we kick off the 2022 pledge season and celebrate the start of a new season together. And we really mean together!
What a joy it is to get our church family back together again on campus and in-person — and online. For the past 18 months
the pandemic has limited our access to the church grounds. Now as conditions have improved, we are able to gather again in
person—all while maintaining our online ministries. And what a blessing it is to be together in so many different ways! Look
below for all of our opportunities to be together during this pledge season.

 

MISSIONS  FESTIVAL

SUNDAY, October 24 at 11:30 am | Courtyard
Fall Missions Festival is BACK! As part of this year’s pledge campaign and our desire to be together, please join us after the 10:15 service on Oct. 24 for our annual Missions Festival. Discover ways you can help our church serve our neighbors in many different ministries – all fulfilling one of our primary goals: Making Disciples! Bring a friend and some donations too! For a list of items to donate go to saintbarnabas.org/missions-festival or contact Rev. Susie Parker at 480-355-9732.

 

CHILI FESTIVAL

SUNDAY, October 31 at 11:30am | Hutton Hall
Food and fellowship often go hand-in-hand, and we are adding a little spice to this year’s Pledge Campaign: a chili festival! Join us after church as a select group of cooks prepares to impress us with their culinary skills. Perhaps we’ll even vote on our favorites. A tasty way to bring our church family together for a little nutrition – body and soul!

To learn more go to saintbarnabas.org/chili-festival or contact Judie Wimmer at 480-998-7111

 

MILITARY APPRECIATION

SUNDAY, November 7 at 11:30 am | Hutton Hall
Gratitude is part of our spiritual life at Saint Barnabas. And we can never say “thank you” enough to our military men and women – active and veterans – for their service to our country. Join us after church as we write thank-you notes and letters to those in our Veterans Administration Hospital in Phoenix. What a treat for our children (and adults!) as we show our love and gratitude for those who have served so selflessly. To learn more go to saintbarnabas.org/military-appreciation or contact Nancy Rozak at 480-685-3540.

 

MOVIE SUNDAE

SUNDAY, November 14 at 11:30am | Hutton Hall
Our children’s ministries bring so much love and joy to our lives together at Saint Barnabas. Join us after church as we enjoy a rolling
video with highlights of our children’s ministry activities all while enjoying ice cream sundaes, a treat that helps make us all feel like kids again! To learn more go to saintbarnabas.org/movie-sundae or contact Sarah Petersen at 480-355-9730.

 

GRATITUDE SUNDAY

SUNDAY, November 21 | To Learn More Go To: Saintbarnabas.org/pledge2022
Don’t miss the annual opportunity to make our prayerful pledges to the mission and ministry of our parish!
