Donations for Christmas Flowers

We are accepting donations of funds for Christmas poinsettias to decorate the sanctuary Christmas Eve!  Donations may be in an amount of your choice. Please contact the church office at 440-449-2290 or saintbartohio@gmail.com for details on how to contribute to this festive tradition.

Stewardship Campaign

Everything we have comes from God.  You should have received last week Vestry's annual letter asking this Parish Family, as stewards of what God has given, to pledge an offering in support of the mission and ministry of Saint Bart’s.  Please consider this request prayerfully and seriously as you consider God's guidance as to how great an offering He wishes you to make to His Church. Please return all stewardship materials to Treasurer Jack Rendlesham no later than Monday, December 12, 2022 so that he can prepare a budget for Vestry's approval before the January 15, 2023 Annual Parish Meeting.

Reintroduction of Wine at Holy Communion and Mandatory Eucharistic Minister Training

Wine will be reintroduced at Holy Communion, starting November 27, 2022 (1 Advent).  Although we have a cadre of Eucharistic Ministers, we can always use more.  If you would like to become licensed as one, you must attend a training session.  Please see Dorothea if you wish to become licensed.

Tables for Sale!

Treasurer Jack Rendlesham announces that the pressed board and laminate tables stacked in the classroom hallway are available for sale!  Asking price is $10.00 per table.  Please contact Jack for more information.

Food Pantry Donations

Please remember to bring donations of non-perishable, packaged, or canned goods for delivery to the Willoughby Food Pantry.  During this time of the year, consider including boxes of cake or cookie mix.

Parish Vestry typically meets on the 3rd Sunday of each month, following the 9:30 a.m. service.  It is open to all.  If you have something that you would like to add to the agenda, please contact our Senior Warden, John Charny.
