About a thousand people make up St. Bartholomew’s parish and preserving a sense of extended family is very important to us. So how does one find their place among so many people?

We invite you to join a Fellowship group like Foyers, or serve on a committee like Greeters, come by for a cup of coffee after church, attend a Wednesday class, or join us for Sunday breakfast. There are many ways to connect with others in our parish. Please feel free call the office to learn more. We are happy to help you find your place here.

You can also stay abreast of Activities and Events throughout the Diocese of Atlanta through their CONNECTING website.

Annual Parish Retreat
The Annual Parish Retreat, in the fall, is a great way to get to know people and for exploring the possibilities of real community. Our Parish packs up and goes away for the weekend together. Much fellowship happens through eating, playing, learning, and praying together.
