We are saddened to hear of the death of 12-year-old Toby Montgomery, son of Kevin and Emily Montgomery and brother to Adela and Sebastian. Toby was the grandson of Bob and the late Debbie Montgomery, who were members of our congregation. Bob and Debbie both sang in the choir and Bob painted the picture of the Dove hanging at the back of our sanctuary. Our prayers are with Toby's family.
Please support the life and work of St. Bart’s
One of the consequences of not being able to worship together at our church building is that we do not have a weekly offering to keep donations flowing into St. Bart’s. We have a dozen families on PAR (pre-authorized remittances), but this is not enough to allow us to continue to meet all of our regular monthly operating expenses. We are currently drawing on a liquidity reserve to meet expenses, however, the longer the present situation lasts, the greater the need becomes to receive donations through other channels. Some options for your consideration. Click on Givings
