worship times

At St. Barnabas, worship is an essential part of following a Christian way of life and experiencing God. Participating in worship magnifies God and helps us see ourselves and others through God’s perspective. The community we share in our worship services helps us encourage, inspire, love, heal and hold each other accountable. Worship also becomes a catalyst for the rest of the week as we seek to go out and serve, offering compassion, healing and hope to the world around us.


We currently host four worship experiences on Sunday mornings (except holiday weekends*):


CHAPEL SERVICE

*With so many traveling during three-day weekends, we want to ensure that we still have lively and engaging worship for those who are here. Because of that, on the Sundays before Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Christmas and New Year's, we condense our four services into two, one at 9:30 a.m. and one at 11:00 a.m.
