Who We Are

St. Barnabas Episcopal Church proclaims, by word and example, the Good News of God in Jesus Christ, seeks and serves Christ in all persons, strives for justice and peace among all people, and respects the dignity of every human being. Our Sunday service is formed from ancient services (though we use contemporary language). Our focus is on living as an authentic Christ-centered community.

Located at 929 East Centre Avenue in Portage, Michigan, Sunday worship begins at 10:00 am. We look forward to meeting you. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome here.
