First Time at Saint David’s?
Our regular services are at 8:00 and 10:00 on Sunday mornings.
At both services, we sing songs, read passages from the Bible, hear a sermon about how the Bible applies to our lives, and celebrate Holy Communion. The service lasts about an hour.
You can follow the service on screens at the front of the Church or else in the red Book of Common Prayer in the pews.
Children are welcome at all services. There is also a nursery available during all services, as well as special children’s programming during the 10:00 service.
After the 10:00 service, please join us for pastries, coffee, and/or juice. We would love to get to know you better!
We have ample parking, and the Church is fully handicapped-accessible.
Praise and worship of our Lord does not end when the service is over. We are all encouraged to go in peace to love and serve the Lord where ever life takes us. Don't miss out on what you deserve: peace, love, and happiness. Come to St. David's where you will find that and more. ALL are welcome, please join us!
St. David's is a place where new friendships are formed and old friendships blossom. Saint David’s is called to be: a caring community of dynamic worship and relevant teaching designed to provide a foundation for our daily lives and to equip believers to serve God in the world.
As disciples of Jesus Christ, we are called to love God and community; committing ourselves to lives of joyful worship, prayer and the teaching of scripture
The Cross and the Lynching Tree, 2011 by: James Cone
This is a challenging book in more ways than one. James Cone is arguably the most important theologian to develop a self-consciously Black Theology. As the title suggests, he draws a parallel between the crucifixion and lynching. Cone says that remembering the lynching tree keeps us mindful of the brutal horror of the cross. And remembering the cross helps us to find redemption even in the face of horrors like lynching. The book can be theologically dense. But the Beloved Community Team of our diocese has recommended that people read it, and the clergy of the diocese will be talking about it at Clergy Conference this year.
