Christian Education is one of our largest and most important ministries at St. Barnabas.
Sunday School is offered for ages 2 through adult between the worship services (9:15-10:15am) each Sunday during the school year. A curriculum is followed based on the age group for the nursery program through eighth grade. High School students join together in their own Youth Room for faith discussions.
Throughout the year, all age groups meet together for inter-generational events. These events are great opportunities for families to participate in Christian Education together.
In addition, students occasionally participate in leading part of a worship service, assisting as greeters or singing to the congregation.
New participants are welcome anytime during the school year. Contact the church office for more information.
Confirmation is a two year program for 7th & 8th graders, including a weekend retreat and a week long (optional) summer confirmation camp. The class gathers weekly during the school year, on Wednesdays from 7:00-8:30 PM. Small and large group activities and multimedia are used as teaching tools. Students participate in service projects within the congregation and in the community. Please complete our Confirmation Registration Form to enroll in the program.
Vacation Bible School is offered each summer. Our 2019 VBS program based on the ELCA World Hunger curriculum Who is My Neighbor? was a great success. We learned about the Good Samaritan and about neighbors around the world. The 2020 VBS program is tentatively scheduled for mid-June. For more information, call the church office or email: email@example.com. All are welcome!
