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. Nursery is available for infants through age 4.
TRADITIONAL UNPLUGGED SERVICE
9:30 A.M., SANCTUARY
Our 9:30 a.m. Traditional Unplugged service is a welcoming, hour-long worship experience that uses a combination of traditional hymns and songs presented in a way that is both high energy and deeply meaningful by worship leader David Pfleger. Alongside that, the message is shared through brief vignettes. Nursery is available for infants through age 2. Children’s Sunday School classes are available for age 3 to 6th grade, and youth Sunday School classes are available for 7th-12th grade. This service is also streamed live online each Sunday.
