Join us for a special virtual Children’s Chapel this summer! Children age 4 through 5 th grade will have fun using emojis to discover the joy of prayer. Through skits, Bible stories, and crafts we will explore the blessing of being able to talk to God. A new video lesson will be posted each week. Supply packets for our weekly activities will be provided to all students who register. Please register your child for this fun Summer Children’s Chapel by June 1. 
Be a Virtual Lector!
Calling all readers! We are looking for more voices to help lead our online worship services: to read scripture, officiate services, and lead the prayers. All ages are more than welcome! If you are feeling called to help our worship ministry reach the wider community, please consider volunteering to read once every few weeks. Please contact John-Luke Addison , if you are interested in serving during this difficult time.
Art Conversations - Session 2
Join session 2 of Art Conversations, a four-week art history series taught online by Art History Professor, and St. Bart's parishioner, Rachel Blankenship. Each week's content will center around a theme which we will unearth by way of art history. A week at a time, we will pay special attention to one artist and their artwork, an assigned reading and a reading prompt, as well as a brief video lecture. Engage with other parishioners to see how art and art history bring creativity, spirituality and community up off the screen and into our daily lives. No experience needed! Come as you are. Access wee kly lessons posted on St. Bartholomew's website.

ADULT FORMATION
The Holy Spirit Bible Study
Wednesdays May 20-August 5, 10:30 a.m., Zoom
Do you know a lot about the Holy Spirit? Our Apostle’s Creed tells us very little. “He (Jesus) was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit” and “I believe in the Holy Spirit.” The Nicene Creed tells us a little more. “We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of life, Who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son, He is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets.” Even though the Holy Spirit does not have a whole testament about Him, it turns out that the Holy Spirit is mentioned a lot more than we realize in both the Old Testament and the New Testament. Still, most of us know very little about the Holy Spirit. During this 12-session Bible study, we will learn about the Holy Spirit who is with us on a daily basis. The class includes a 30-minute video and discussion before and after the video (similar to how we conducted previous classes on campus, except you have to supply your own treats). Please contact Bob Capettini for an invitation to the Zoom meeting.

During these unprecedented times, we would like to provide an additional opportunity for study and fellowship as an offering to men in the parish who may not be able to participate on Friday mornings. Please join us for a new Zoom-based weekly one hour discussion group on Tuesdays 2- 3 p.m. We will start a new discussion centered on Bishop Michael Curry’s book Crazy Christians.
