Honor God, Seek Christ, Serve Others Together


All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness2 Timothy 3:16  (NRSV)

At Barry we believe it is important to walk the Christian journey with others, therefore, we encourage each other to explore our faith together, to delve into the teachings of Jesus deepening our knowledge of God’s Word.  There are classes for children and adults of all ages.



Our children are a true blessing to Barry; therefore, a nursery is available to care for God’s children during Sunday morning worship as well as during Sunday School.  The nursery is located on the second floor in the Education Building.  Warm loving church members are there to care for and serve these children.


Children’s Ministry

Barry Christian Church’s growing ministry to children includes Sunday School, Children’s Church (during both services), and several events throughout the year including Vacation Bible School. Our goal is to lead children to know and cherish the Bible as the story of God’s relationship with us, and to apply Biblical teachings to their everyday lives.  


Children’s Church

Children’s Church is meant to prepare our children for worship with the rest of the family.  After the Children’s Moment during Worship the leaders for Children’s Church meet the children at the sanctuary door to walk with them to their church on the lower level of the Education Building.


Vacation Bible School (VBS)

Each summer Barry hosts a weeklong spirit-filled, fun-filled event for our community’s children.  Each day starts at 9 a.m. in fellowship with an opening assembly, consisting of music, scripture, and mission work.  The children are divided into classes and attend various stations throughout the morning, such as games, Bible stories, snacks, and arts and crafts.  The children finish their morning at a closing assembly in the sanctuary, where they share the lessons and experiences of the day with each other. Their day ends at noon.  Each year the success of VBS depends on a large group of volunteers, so if you are interested in helping in any way, please contact our church secretary who will pass on your information to those in charge.


Youth Ministry

At Barry our youth ministry aims to connect youth with Christ.  Where in a safe environment they can fellowship with others their age while being a disciple of Jesus Christ.  Where they can stay committed to Christ’s message and feel compelled to serve and to reach out to others through events and various other activities.

The GateWay Sunday School Class comprises children in the 6th, 7th and 8th Grades.  It is a Bible-based Sunday School Class which can include Bible readings, Christian videos, discussion and questions.  On some days other than Sunday, the class enjoys service projects, attending Christian events, Christian concerts and also some just-for-fun events.  (See the pictures above which represent the day the teens baked and frosted cupcakes to deliver to the other Sunday School classes!)  The GateWay class meets in the Sunshine (yellow) Room on the 2nd level at the west end of the Education Building.


Adult Education

At this time Adult Sunday School offers four diverse classes:

Good Neighbors meet in the Fellowship Hall on the lower level

Koinonia meet in the Upper Room on the 2nd level of the Education Building

Pathways meet in the Pathways Room on the 2nd level at the west end of the Education Building (the lavender room)
