ADULT FORMATION
Revelation
Wednesdays, Video Recorded
This class will be video recorded each week and posted on St. Bartholomew's YouTube channel.
Revelation (known as the Apocalypse or insight) is one of the most engaging and disputed books of the Bible. It has inspired great works of art and music, and it has fed social upheaval and speculation about the coming end of the world. This course will ask what Revelation is, why it has played such a volatile role in Western culture, and how it continues to be meaningful to contemporary readers. All are welcome! See the full description for the topic schedule .
CHILDREN'S FORMATION
Sunday School in a Box!
Our Children’s Ministry Directors are working on a special delivery for all our students. In about a week, packages will be sent to all registered Sunday school students. This fun activity box will include all the materials you need to complete four lessons including a simple instruction sheet and tips for parents. The lessons explore Holy Week and Easter with an engaging, child-friendly approach. It will be a fun opportunity for our students to continue to build their faith and learn about the wonder of Easter during these unusual circumstances.  If your child is not registered for Sunday school, but you would like to receive a box, please email Maureen and Karen at  children@stbartschurch.org. Be sure to include your name, your child’s name and grade, and your mailing address.
Virtual Thursday Sunday School Gathering - Coming Next Week
Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to check in with your Sunday school friends and families during this pause in classes?   Well, our Children’s Ministry Directors think so!   They will be hosting a Zoom meeting for Sunday school families every Thursday at 10 a.m beginning next week.   Details on how to join in will be sent out soon.
