About Our Ministries & Programs
We are all ministers of our faith. Christ has entrusted us with the responsibility (stewardship) to practice Christianity now, here and everywhere. We can’t do this without a deep understanding of His teachings as they apply in our world, 2000 years later. As such, Christianity is an active, proactive, and growing faith.
Our Pastor–led programs include:
- Theology on Tap
- Weekly Bible Study
- Men’s Breakfast Book Study
In addition to our Pastor-led programs we also also have several Member-led programs.

Care & Support
As a compassionate, caring, faith community, we realize that there will be times in our lives where problems and circumstances seem overwhelming. No one should go through pain and struggle alone. Please read more and discover how we can help.
The Presbyterian Church of Barrington’s Children’s Ministry Programs provide children and families opportunities to grow in their faith through programming based in Biblical teachings, fellowship and service.
The Milestones Ministry recognizes important steps in the life of faith:
- To provide children with information and experiences as they grow in faith;
- To equip parents to be involved in the Christian Education of their children;
- To recognize and celebrate milestone events with the congregation;
- To assist the congregation in fulfilling the vows made at baptism to “help you know and follow Jesus Christ.”

Fellowship Groups are a great way to connect with one another as we share time together and discover how the love of God transforms our lives. These groups are a place for fun, fellowship, learning, and ministering. Get involved with these groups and connect today!
