The Newcomers Ministry provides support and information for newcomers.


Greeters are at our services to welcome you, answer questions, and help you navigate the church. We can prepare name tags if you'd like, and we will ask if we may take your photo to put on the Newcomer bulletin board so people can get to know you. We also send welcome packets full of information about St. Barnabas and our ministries.


Shepherds are parishioners who volunteer to help newcomers become involved in the life of the church.

Newcomer Brunches

Are you new to our church family? We would love to welcome you!


Join us for a casual brunch at the home of Pastor Nancy or a parishioner so we can get to know one another. We also invite our Ministry Council Leaders, so you can get to know about our ministries. Brunches are scheduled several times a year.


Please bring your kids! We’ll have someone to keep them entertained. Food allergies? No problem! Just let us know so we can prepare something delicious for you.
