Raise the Tree & Then the Roof

Before we can raise the roof, we will need to raise the tree! Like so many yesterday, St. Barnabas experienced some of the furry of yesterday’s windstorm. A large tree fell across the roof from West to East, just touching the gutters on the East side of the building. No one was hurt, but one of the daycare workers got a real fright at 5:00pm on the afternoon of Nov. 17, 2015. Praise God no one was injured and that the tree didn’t fall across the Fellowship Hall where standard construction may not have withstood the blow! God has truly been gracious to St. Barnabas!

Still working on Raising the roof: !

Veteran’s Day November 11, 2015

Veterans Day Nov 11 2015

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, in whose hands are the living and the dead; We give thanks for all those thy servants who have laid down their lives in the service of our country. Grant to them thy mercy and the light of thy presence, that the good work which thou hast begun in them may be perfected; through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord. Amen.

(Collect 1928 Book of Common Prayer p. 42)

ALMIGHTY God, the supreme Governor of all things,
whose power no creature is able to resist, to whom it
belongeth justly to punish sinners, and to be merciful to
those who truly repent; Save and deliver us, we humbly be-
seech thee, from the hands of our enemies; that we, being
armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore from
all perils, to glorify thee, who art the only giver of all vic-
tory; through the merits of thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
(Collect 1928 Book of Common Prayer p. 41.)

God Bless America!

God Bless America psalm33_12

Join us this Sunday as we bless our nation in worship and give praise to a Sovereign God who has given us much in a bountiful land. While we are given the choice to worship we can be complacent in remembering that we are also free to worship. Our services at 8:00 am and 10:30 am will acknowledge this solemn and Holy honor. Leave time in the busy activities of this great weekend to give thanks to a mighty God for giving us a glorious land.

May God continue to Bless America!

June 2015 Mission of the Month

Our June 2015 Mission of the Month is directed to The Very Revd. Lewis Lew in recognition for his work on behalf of the Missionary Deanery of Nepal. All funds collected are to be sent to Dean Lew for his discretionary use in ministering to the churches and people within the Deanery.

We consider this offering to be a sacrifice in recognition for all that we have received from a generous and loving savior.

This gift is above and beyond our tithes, pledges, and regular giving to be a Thank offering to the Lord!

This Sunday only – 1 service at 9:00 am June 28, 2015

We will have a special service this Sunday, June 28, 2015 at 9:00 am. We are hosting the Dean of the Missionary deanery of Singapore! The Very Revd. Lewis Lew will be our guest preacher and speaker during our combined 9:00am service of the Word and the Eucharist.

The Anglican Church in Nepal was formed in 1999, when the Synod of the Diocese of Singapore voted to accept a group of interested independent churches in Nepal to be part of the Diocese. Reverend Norman Beale was appointed as the first Dean of Nepal from July 1999 to November 2009 to establish the Anglican Church, as well as to train pastors in evangelism and discipleship. Mr. Chew Boon Ann then continued the work under the leadership of Bishop Kuan Kim Seng and the Council of the Deanery of Nepal until December 2013. Reverend Lewis Lew took over as the Dean of Nepal from May 2014. (from the Diocese of Singapore website)

What a joy to host Dean Lew this Sunday. We look forward to hearing his amazing testimony as he works to share the gospel with the people of Nepal.
