Inreach ministries provide us with intentional ways to ‘reach in’ to our Parish family offering support – physically, emotionally and spiritually. These ministries also give us organized methods to tend to our building and grounds with the same care.

PASTORAL CARE MINISTRIES

CARE-GIVER SUPPORT GROUP
An informal group that gathers monthly over a brown-bag lunch in a spiritual setting to offer and receive encouragement supporting those who are care-givers to family members. All conversations are confidential. Group meets on the third Tuesday of each month from 12:30pm to 1:30pm.  For more information, contact The Reverend Beverley Elliott at 404-634-3336 Ext 223 or bev@stbartsatlanta.org.

SUNFLOWER CONNECTION
Named for the flower symbol of our patron saint, this ministry is a group of compassionate parishioners who have been trained to be good listeners. This support is available to anyone who needs it as they offer confidential, non-judgmental, prayerful company and can only do so with your invitation. For more information contact The Reverend Beverley Elliott or at 404-634-3336 Ext 223, or program coordinator, Kaaren Nowicki or at 404-371-0990.

FOOD MINISTRY
This ministry provides meals to parishioners who are in a state of temporary need due to life altering circumstances. Providing meals at these times is a tangible expression of the love and concern the members of our parish family have for one another. We have a group of 30 parishioners who prepare and deliver the meals. For more information or to reach out for meals, please contact Linda Dacey-Caban or at 404 634-9539.
