HOW DO WE REACH OUT TO THE WORLD?
By Love Serve One Another - Galatians 5:13

To live out our mission in “reaching out to make a meaningful difference in our world,” St. Bartholomew’s focuses its collective outreach in several directions, always seeking to serve the community around us.

On Faith in Action Sunday in May parishioners go out into the community to “Be the Church.” Service activities for Faith in Action Sunday include visiting veterans at a nursing home, serving at a local animal shelter, cooking and delivering meals to public servants, providing yard care for both elderly parishioners and a school campus.

The Episcopal Church Women Bridge Luncheon, St. Bart’s Holiday Bazaar, St. Bart’s Pumpkin Patch, July 4th BBQ, and Lenten Fish Dinners raise funds for service in our community and beyond and also provide wonderful fellowship opportunities.
