SECRET PRAYER PARTNERS (SPP)
Secret Prayer Partners (SPP) has been formed as a way to bring the women of St. Barnabas into closer fellowship and spiritual awareness of each other’s needs. This happens through prayer, friendship and correspondence throughout the year while keeping our own identity a secret from our SPP until the year’s end party and gift exchange.

ST BARNABAS DAY SCHOOL
Saint Barnabas supports the Day School, Bainbridge Island’s oldest pre-school program. The Church houses this two-year program that prepares children for success in elementary school through a developmentally appropriate program of learning and play. The support of the Church keeps enrollment costs as low as possible. The children of the Day School attend monthly chapel sessions focused on learning how to be responsible members of a community. For the Day School Site, go here.

CHAPLAINS ON THE HARBOR
An outreach ministry directed by the Rev. Sarah Monroe. This mission entails providing food, seasonal items, and general support for the many homeless men and women in the Aberdeen and Westport area. Sarah, designated as a Missioner of the Diocese by the Bishop, currently hosts her Chaplains on the Harbor ministry in Aberdeen out of St. Andrews Church. A similar ministry occurs in Westport and utilizes the former St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church that is owned by the diocese. We place a box in the Parlor twice a year. We ask the congregation if they would place seasonal items in the box, which will be taken to St. Andrews. These items will be listed in the bulletin and collected at church over a 5-week period. The collected items will then be delivered to the homeless community or used as the ministry seeks to serve the community. Donation items are collected and then delivered as we seek to serve our community.
