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:
8:30 A.M., SANCTUARY
Our Chapel service is a warm, relaxed and abbreviated, 45-minute worship experience with familiar music led by Mark Husband, Director of Music Ministries. Senior Pastor Ginger Bassford serves as the lead pastor for this service. Nursery is available for infants through age 4.
