The Barnabas Circle is composed of individuals or families who have named Talbot Park Baptist Church as a recipient in their wills. The members of the circle have taken the formal steps to leave a gift that will continue to benefit the church and its ministry, even after the members themselves are gone.
In Acts, Chapter 4, Barnabas sells a field that belongs to him and brings the money to the apostles to distribute. His act of generosity is a model for us as we seek to become faithful followers of Jesus Christ in our own day and age. Income through inheritance gifts remains a key asset for many churches, including ours. Remembering the church in our will is one tangible way of demonstrating our on-going commitment to Talbot Park.
Those that have named Talbot Park Baptist Church as a beneficiary in their will are asked to contact the church office. Their name or names will be added to the Barnabas Circle at an appreciation luncheon to be held once a year for all members. Members will be recognized for their contributions in an annual publicized list. In addition, all new inductees to the Barnabas Circle will receive a commemorative plate of the church in appreciation for their gift.

Prayer is one of the most valuable investments you can make. Whether during Sunday Service, our Wednesday night meeting or any time the church is open, all are welcome to come and pray.
