Saint Barnabas by-the-Bay Church, Villas

There's a sweet, sweet Spirit in this place,
And I know that it's the Spirit of the Lord.
There are sweet expressions on each face,
And I know they feel the presence of the Lord.
(from the hymn Sweet, Sweet Spirit)

As a Christian community, we at Saint Barnabas-by-the-Bay find our center in the worship for which we gather each Sunday. Our service is called the Eucharist, in which we believe that Jesus is truly present with us, as he assured us he would be, when we share bread and wine in the way he told us, as Christians have ever since. In the Eucharist, we find a connection with God and with one another.
