Whoever you are, wherever you are on
your journey, we welcome you to this place.
Ministry is at the heart of who we are and where our place is in the world.
Through ministry we share our hands, we share our hearts and we share our resources with our Parish family and with those outside our front doors. We have a deep conviction at St. Bartholomew’s for ministry, spanning many years and many organizations. In this section, read more about our Inreach ministries, those which tend to our own flock, and our Outreach ministries, those which God has called us to serve.
Welcome to St. Bartholomew’s. We hope that as you look over the site you’ll begin to get a feel for who we are and what we’re about—which is summed up in our mission statement below.
St. Bartholomew’s Church is a parish in the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta.
Our rich liturgical tradition includes the use of vestments, music, candles, bells, and incense. While we fall on the “high church” end liturgically, neither the facilities nor the people are formal. One is more likely to see casual clothes at Sunday services than suits and ties. The depth of our spiritual experience cannot be measured by our casual appearance. We invite you to visit us anytime to share this experience.
During COVID-19, we are unable to worship in person, however we are still together online. Weekday worship and meetings are held on Zoom, and Sunday worship is held on Zoom and streamed live to our Facebook Page and to our Youtube Channel. If you would like to receive emails with the worship schedule and Zoom links, please email our parish administrator at email@example.com.

To be a nurturing, inclusive community centered in Jesus Christ, called to grow in our faith through worship, ministry, education, and service.
Our clergy and staff come from different backgrounds and bring unique gifts to our Parish. Become acquainted with them as they share a bit about their journey.
Our Parish Life is abundant with fellowship, laughter and genuine care of one another. We have plenty of groups and classes for adults, youth and children of all ages!
St. Bartholomew’s has a rich history in outreach and social justice.
Together we are a parish called to act. A parish called to pray, reflect, discuss, and grow. We are called to worship in joyful togetherness. Called to love our neighbors. Called to give to those in need.
The Outreach and Social Justice ministries at St. Bartholomew’s provide opportunities for each of us to love and act like Jesus by doing more for those in need, whether big or small, and to manifest our love beyond the walls of our church.
Our ministries serve our local neighbors through programs like Toco Hills Community Alliance. We also reach out to our brothers and sisters around the world through efforts like our Haiti ministry and our work for Episcopal Relief & Development.
Please join us in choosing to be a parish of action. A parish united in service. A parish walking with Jesus to help the poor, stand up for the oppressed, and speak for the voiceless.
Ways to Get Involved
How things were before Covid-19
“Increase our faith!” the apostles said
to the Lord in Luke 17:5.
Our faith calls us to be grateful for God’s gifts and to be good stewards, trusting in God’s continued provision. Celebrating our 65-year ministry has shown us the importance of continuing St. Bart’s legacy of seeing needs, developing ministries to serve those needs, and supporting those ministries.
Prayerfully consider what is meaningful for you to give for the 2020 church year. For many, that means giving 10 percent (the biblical tithe) of your income to God’s work. For others, tithing is a goal reached by increasing giving by two or three percent each year. We invite you to make a pledge that reflects God’s generosity in your life, and if possible increase your previous level of giving. Your pledge helps the Vestry establish the Annual Budget and is very much appreciated.
