St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church is growing. Our campus is active seven days a week with growing ministries, support groups and community organization meetings, diocesan workshops, and other large events.
Our parish is raising $8 million to respond to our parish vision to share the Good News every day with our members and our neighbors. Together our members and the community identified three priorities to better serve our needs for today and for generations to come: improve campus accessibility, provide more parking and improved campus safety, and replace our old Parish Hall with a two-story Parish Community Center. Developed by the Architectural Committee with frequent and continuing parish listing and feedback, our campus redevelopment master plan honors St Bart’s legacy of almost 60 years with the prayerful vision of today’s faith community.
We are transforming ourselves and our campus to serve the Episcopal Church of the 21st century that welcomes all people, loves all people and shares the love of Jesus with all people. This good work takes all of us together. Share your ideas and ask questions! Want to learn more? Get involved? Reach out to . A member of the Campaign Steering Committee will connect with you.

We gather as a community, fed by the word and by the bread and wine, and then we are sent out into the world to do God’s work. As we share God’s love with the neighbors we meet on our church campus and in the community, we grow in our faith.
