The Women of St. Barnabas met on Sunday, June 26th. Thanks to all of you who attended.
The Pentecost chili cook off was under new leads this year. A big thank you to Kay, Melissa, and Sheila for putting this together. We had many new chili chefs this year which was great. This has become an annual staple in the St. Barnabas parish life.
The pink is going away! Our buildings have undergone a dramatic transformation. The repairs and painting are complete (with the exception of some areas on the back (north side) of the church that will be tackled next week) and the new color combo looks fantastic. We have new windows and doors in select areas in Grafe Hall, and the swamp cooler has been removed from the kitchen roof. The job should be entirely finished in the next couple of weeks.
Question: What is this CREDO Conference you’re going to?
The Work on repairing the siding and painting the church continues. As expected, we have found some areas that that are badly rotted and require repairs beyond the scope of the original bid.
Thanks to the joyful participation of many people, this year’s chili cook-off was a great success. We had five chili contestants with Carols Bridges’ white bean chili and Shannon Reel’s traditional chili taking top honors. Carol received a chili pepper scarf knitted by Sandy Hunnicut (thank you Sandy) and other goodies. Shannon won the right to pick the hymns on Sunday, June 5, and she did a great job!
Thank you to everyone who helped with planning, set-up, clean up, cooking and eating. Well Done!

After five days of carrying, stacking and unpacking endless boxes as well as lifting and hauling furniture, we realized there were many treasures to sell. A bonus was the Narthex being transformed into a “Holiday Wonderland” including a very special collection of lighted “Village” Christmas decorations from our beloved MaryLou McClenaghan.
