Our Ministries

The people of Saint Barnabas understand and practice the commandments of Jesus - To Love God with all our hearts, souls, and minds, and to love our neighbors with that same intensity.  All people are welcome to join us as we serve our communities, regardless of membership status with Saint Barnabas.  


Our crew of children and youth gather together after the Children’s Sermon is given. We use this time to discuss what it means to be Christian out in the world, explore the liturgical calendar with all its color, and dive into questions about the trinity, the definition of sin, why left-handedness was considered bad, and any other curiosities that come up. We practice reading scripture lessons for Sundays when the children and youth serve as lectors, rehearse acolyting, and plan for future activities. Come join us!

Children Reading the Holy Bible

As Christians, we are called to serve the vulnerable in our communities.  About one in five children and seniors in our Siskiyou County don't have or can't access enough to eat, which is 3.8 percent higher than the national average. At St. Barnabas we gather food and donate to local food banks, as well as assist Great Northern Services with food distribution at our church.

Saint Barnabas is a leader in disaster preparation and recovery.  Our people are charter members of both the Mill Fire (Weed, CA) Long-term Recovery Group ( and Siskiyou/Modoc Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD).  Since 2022, we have invested nearly $100,000 into Siskiyou County disaster recovery.  The congregation also comes together to support the diocese's larger Project (Re)Start, in which congregations build recovery resources before they are needed and distribute them when needed.

Because we are committed to supporting all people seeking to do better for themselves, we are glad to provide meeting space for 12-step recovery groups. We welcome, without question, those in recovery into our facility and our Episcopal faith community.


Our chapter of Episcopal Church Women (ECW) are active in giving the women of the church a voice in directing the life of the church.  They are also our leaders in raising funds for, and defining meaningful outreach programs that beautify and uplift our communities.
