St. Bartholomew's Ministries

Ministry teams composed of church members, each with oversight by members of the Vestry, take responsibility for the various Ministries of the parish. Each of these ministries builds stronger, closer relationships within the St. Bartholomew's community and to the larger community.

Finance & Administration

The team responsible for the administrative and financial operation of the parish is led by the Finance Director, who oversees the financial health of the church, assists with the preparation of monthly reports and spearheads the annual Stewardship efforts. Volunteers manage the parish office on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Worship

The Worship ministry oversees the Altar Guild, Acolyte and Lay Reader teams, and participates in the Eucharist as lay ministers. Music is an integral part of the worship services.

Education

The education ministry organizes Bible Study for adults, Sunday School for children, the weekly Book Club and various special interest classes and seminars throughout the year.

Buildings & Grounds

The Buildings & Grounds committee has responsibility for the parish facilities, including all buildings and surrounding grounds and gardens. A team of enthusiastic volunteers devote one work-day a month to give the church it's inviting look.

Outreach

Among the outreach projects supported by the parish are the Backpack project, which provides school supplies and shoes to children in need; Holiday Baskets, which supplies groceries to families in need at Christmas Time; and the African Team Ministries jewelry and crafts sale which benefits the communities of East Africa.

St Bartholomew’s is also home to the food pantry operated by Interfaith Sharing, Inc., see sidebar to the right for more details.

Our campus is in constant use by the community; in addition to church events, almost every day of the year there are meetings, rehearsals, classes etc. as the greater community avails themselves of our excellent facilities.

Hospitality

The members of the Hospitality ministry host the fellowship hour after both Sunday services. Volunteers take turns to greet newcomers and invite them for coffee and treats in the parish lounge. Events held periodically through the year serve as fundraisers.

Communications

The communications team is reponsible for maintaining the website and publishing the monthly newsletter, the Full Circle. A Parish Directory is also published at the beginning of each year.
