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 Practice of Prayer by: Guenther
In this book, Guenther begins by defining spirituality as "the ordering of our loves." By that she means we love lots of things, but not equally. Unfortunately, many of us have loves that are disordered. So, for example, we love success more than family or friends, or we love anything more than God. Guenther argues that every spiritual discipline aims at correcting the disorder in our love life. By concentrating on the things that are most important, we cultivate more love for them. Prayer is one of the best ways we can cultivate our love for God. The book is her description of how we do just that. If you are interested in reading this book, it can be found in our library. Please contact, Fr Harvey.
