St. Bartholomew’s is continuously engaged in the equipping and supporting of cross-cultural missions both locally and abroad. For more information on any of these global outreaches please contact our church office at (716) 831.1777.
Every year, St. Bart's mobilizes our parishioners and community members for Operation Christmas Child. Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Their mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Reaching out to the community, the nation and the world with the love of Jesus Christ, according to His Great Commission, has always been in the heart of our parish. Because of this, St. Bartholomew's supports several missionaries and Anglican outreaches throughout the world. In addition, our Global Missions Ministry meets monthly and plans outreach activities and teachings. Contact Fr. Ward for more information.
This year our Sunday School offerings are going toward the Heifer Project, an charity that gives animals to a family in need; providing wool, milk, eggs and more. Animal donations also provide families a helping hand, increasing access to medicine, education, food and a sustainable livelihood.
Our main purpose is to pray for persecuted Christians around the world, raising awareness of the persecution through meetings and events. New members always welcome! We meet the 2nd Monday of each month at 7 PM. For more information - please contact James McNamera.
