About St. B's

St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church is a part of the Diocese of Maryland and The Episcopal Church, which is a member of the Anglican Communion.

We are a church committed to worship, inclusivity and openness, pastoral care, learning and teaching, and outreach and service. And we are committed to our place in our community and city. We know that we occupy a place of transition, drawing members from the city and the counties, a variety of races and cultural backgrounds, and representing a wide range of educational and financial resources. Our awareness of the space we occupy fuels and informs our mission and goals.

We are excited and energized to continue in this church's tradition of struggling for justice and equality for all.

VISIONWe will, with God’s help, be a vibrant faith community that is a blazing beacon of God’s transforming love in the world.

MISSION: God is calling us to take righteous risks. We accept this call, and will respond by seeking and serving Christ in ALL people.
