Welcome Back!

The start of the school year is a good time to reaffirm our welcome to families of all shapes and sizes.

As always, children are always welcome at St. Barnabas. If you would like to have your child with you during the service, books and toys for children are available in the entrance. We have a “family room” at the back of the church, where you can see and hear the service if you need some privacy with your small child. If you prefer, you can take your child to our nursery for infants and toddlers.  Please let us know, in advance, if you need childcare for any of our events and we will be glad to arrange it for you!

Kid’s Classes (during the 10 am service only):

  • Pre-Kinder, Kinder, and 1st to 4th graders are welcome in Room 2, next to the nursery.
  • 5th through 8th graders are welcome to join our Youth Forum class in Room 3. On the 4th Sundays of each month, the youth can sit with their families in the sanctuary. On any occurring 5th Sundays of the month, they optionally serve in various roles in the service.
  • High Schoolers meet regularly in the Forum Room (the smaller room adjoined to the Parish Hall). The schedule varies, please inquire.
