Testimonials

Christine, Brent, and I joined St Bartholomew’s Church in the winter of 2018 after a long search.  Our daughter Althea was baptized here the following September.  St. B’s stood out for it’s welcoming parishoners, charismatic clergy, and beautiful church service.  It is a church that lives the words of Christ.  When you join the community, you feel loved in an unconditional way that makes you feel like you are in the presence of God.  – Jason

St. B’s is a special place. When we visited, we were warmly welcomed, but what brought us back was how the church is committed to their vision: through worship, preaching and service.  There are so many ways the people of St. B’s demonstrate a desire to serve others and to build authentic community, and it’s reflected in the acceptance, openness and diversity of the congregation. The hallmark of St. B’s is the call to receive and depend on God’s grace and share God’s love. – Mary Ann & Earl

(O for a heart to praise my God) sung at Choral Evensong

We are a church committed to worship, inclusvity and openness, pastoral care, learning and teaching, and outreach and service. And we are committed to our place in our community and city. We know that we occupy a place of transition, drawing members from the city and the counties, a variety of races and cultural backgrounds, and representing a wide range of educational and financial resources. Our awareness of the space we occupy fuels and informs our mission and goals.

We are excited and energized to continue in this church’s tradition of struggling for justice and equality for all.

MICAH 6:8B

What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?
