"Remember the Jewelry!" says Linda Hardy

Sometimes cleaning out unworn, broken jewelry and popping it in a plastic bag for the Bazaar is a lot easier than remembering to take it to the church office. The truth is that you may donate at any time. But this drive for donations is so that we will have lots of time to price and display the items . . . 

At our jewelry-pricing parties!!

I know: parties are fun; more fun is adding the jewelry. Look for dates for the parties, coming soon.

Strategic Plan Update: Join us at the Parish Picnic on Sunday for an update. Team members will be available for discussion and Q&A.

Two special requests from the St. Barnabas Community

If anyone knows of anyone willing to rent a room to a middle-age woman, please contact Deacon Cecily at (302) 530-3493.

St. Barnabas participates in many different outreach activities, including Meals on Wheels.

One of the people we deliver meals to is going through some serious health issues and can no longer care for her two dogs. She is looking for a home for her female dog, Sasha. She weighs roughly 30 pounds. Below is more information about Sasha. If you are interested in adopting Sasha, please text Lynne McIntosh at 302.540.1864.

Hi! My name is Sasha and I love being taken on long walks, I love to cuddle and to lick 👅 you!! I am about 3 years old and I’m a poodle and possibly terrier mix. The vet is not quite sure.


I love to play with kids, but it would be nice if they were older, about 8 or older. I jump!! I just can’t help myself!! I’m good with other dogs, but I can be a bit bossy, so it would be nice if I can have my own person to myself!!


I recently started taking medication for a gallbladder problem, but the vet is not sure if it is serious or not. I am crate trained, but I occasionally have accidents in the house

Update on the Quilt Raffle

A very special thank you to Laura Gracie for her time & talent to create such a treasure! The quilt raffle raised $1095 which will go towards our various outreach programs. The funds will be combined with the funds raised by the Christmas Bazaar and will be distributed by the vestry. The lucky winner of the beautiful quilt is

Carol Leach. Carol is a parishioner at St. James Mill Creek. Thanks go also to all who purchased tickets!

As the Racial Justice and Reconciliation Commission in the Episcopal Church in Delaware continues our commitment to the vital work of racial justice, we believe there is power in coming together to deepen our understanding, strengthen our resolve, and forge bonds of solidarity. You are invited to join us as we embark on a transformative journey together.

Our pilgrimage September 22 - 26, 2024 will lead us to the historic cities of Montgomery and Selma, Alabama, where the echoes of the civil rights movement still reverberate. Together, we will walk in the footsteps of those who courageously paved the way for justice, equality, and freedom.

Let us raise our voices, amplify our actions, and stand in solidarity with all who seek a world where racial justice is not just a dream, but a lived reality.
