Tales of a Madhouse
Lenten Supper and Program

Despite the challenges of the winter storm damage to the Parish Hall, we are going to persevere in our Lenten intentions and have a wonderful Lenten program. The central feature will be an exploration of six charactors who encountered Jesus on Good Friday and are now residents in an eighteenth century insane asylum -- The Madhouse. These DVD presentations are richly artistic and profoundly spiritual with psychological insight to the varied human condition. Each Wednesday will consist of a buffet meal (bring something nice) at 6:00, followed by the DVD presentation at 6:30, ending with a directed conversation, all concluding at about 7:45.


Holy Week Schedule

April 13–20

Palm Sunday — 8:00 in the chapel, 10:30 in the church                                              
This Sunday commemorates the Triumphal Entry of Jesus into the Holy City. We will begin in the church for the blessing of the palms and then process outside in solidarity with those celebrating Jesus as King. The festive mode of the procession quickly dissipates with the dramatic Passion Reading of the trial and crucifixion.
(The procession involves the 10:30 service only; the 8:00 will be in the Chapel with-out procession, but the dramatic reading of the Passion will be at both services.)

Monday in Holy Week — 10:00 in the chapel
This day focuses on the divine irony that the way to glory is through, not around, suffering and death, a choice that Jesus embraces.

Tuesday in Holy Week — 10:00 in the chapel
This day focuses on the physical mocking, spitting, and whipping of Jesus.

Wednesday in Holy Week — 10:00 in the chapel
This day focuses on the betrayal of Jesus by one of his own disciples.

Maundy Thursday: The Washing of the Feet — 6:30 in the Church
Two themes belong to this day: the foot washing as a sign of service and the commandment to love one another as Jesus loved. This year the first theme will
be highlighted by an opportunity to wash one another’s feet. This rite is optional.

Good Friday: The Seven Last Words — 12:00 in the Church
One way of celebrating the gift of life is to focus on The Seven Last Words
from the Cross. This three-hour service does exactly that by taking each word,
say, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do,” as the meditation of
one segment of this time with Jesus. No one is expected to attend the entire service (apart from your hearty clergy!); but everyone who can is expected to “Watch with me for one hour” as Jesus asked of the disciples in the Garden. Parishioners will come and go during the music.

Holy Saturday
No services today.

Easter Day: The Day of the Resurrection — one single service at 10:30
This is the Christian celebration. The miracle of the resurrection is the central hope of Christian believing and the fountainhead of Christian living. There will be no 8:00 service this Sunday, but the entire St. Bart’s family will gather together at 10:30.

Catechism Class On the Decalogue (Ten Commandments)

Wednesdays 11:00- 12:15

This weekly class, under the Spirit's guidance, will inform and lead those attending to a fuller appreciation in living a life of loving obedience and joyous freedom. Our foundation is the Decalogue, also known as the Ten Commandments, but we will discover that this is a springboard to many ethical issues and challenges. The Decalogue is essential to the Christian believer wanting to be effective as the Salt of the Earth and the Light of the World. The two texts are the Bible and a provided draft of the new catechism from Anglican Church in North America. Fr. Brad Wilson will be the teacher.

We at St. Bartholomew are . . .

Christian  Followers of Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord who seek to fully worship God, to love our neighbor as we love ourselves and to proclaim through the power of the Holy Spirit the Good News that God so loved the world that he gave his only Son so that those who believe in him shall have eternal life.  

Anglican  We are part of the Body of Christ: The One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church established by Jesus ca. 33 AD and draw our Christian roots from the Church in Britain established during the apostolic era.  As such, we subscribe to the Holy Bible as containing all things necessary for salvation, the Historic Creeds of the Catholic (Universal) Church and Anglican formularies and are both Catholic and Reformed. 

Episcopal  We are governed by a Bishop and successor to the Holy Apostles and subscribe to three Biblical orders of ministry that come from the people (laity):  Deacons, Priests, and Bishops.  The Rt Rev Mark J. Lawrence, is the XIV Bishop of South Carolina and provides episcopal care and oversight to the parish.

Not perfect but are forgiven sinners and invite you to join us for Worship, Christian Education, Service and Proclamation of the Gospel.  It has been said that the church is both a hospital for sinners and a gymnasium for making saints.

Where do I start?  Join us for worship, the best way to know what we do, is to experience what we do in community.
