Programs for Family, Children, and Youth

St. Barnabas children and youth are the foundation of our future. Our mission is to develop a community of encouragement for our children and youth. 

 

St. Barnabas provides Church School from preschool through 12th Grade. We encourage our children and youth to be active participants in The Episcopal Church traditions, worship, and practices. 

 

We also have many other ways for families to participate in our congregation, including worship, music, family programs, volunteering, and social activities.
