Strategic Planning Workshop-Discerning Your Spiritual Gifts.  

As part of our strategic planning process you are invited to attend a workshop on Saturday, February 15, starting at 10:00 a.m., in Grafe Hall to discern your personal spiritual gifts.  Everyone is given gifts by the Holy Spirit for ministry.  Through a series of exercises and conversations you can learn more about these gifts and how you “gift mix” can assist you in your relationship with God and others.  Everyone , including friends who may not attend Saint Barnabas, are welcome to attend.  For more information contact Fr. Jeff at [email protected]

Breakfast between services will be at 9:00 a.m. -February 16th
