As has been widely reported over recent years, there is no question that many churches are seeing fewer young members involved in services and programs. When you look around St. Barnabas, however, you see parishioners of all ages, and it is a generational diversity of which we are very proud—and intend to continue to grow. It is also our mission to ensure that we give voice to every generation by addressing the spiritual, social and “larger world” needs of all age groups.
For young adults, we know that means we must keep our messaging, programs and events relevant, engaging and spiritually rewarding. At St. Barnabas, we aim to create an inviting environment and culture that welcomes questions and new ideas, offering ways to connect with young adults in the larger narrative of life’s journey, personal mission and community.
