Book recommendation by Fr. Harvey:
Love is the Way: Holding on to Hope in Troubled Times, 2020 by: Michael Curry
This charming book, by our Presiding Bishop, combines his personal story with an insightful and inspiring meditation on love. He ends with this claim: “When God, who is love, becomes our spiritual center of gravity, and love our moral compass, we live differently, regardless of what the world around us does. The world changes for the better, one life at a time” (248). In an appendix, he offers practical tips for creating a personal rule of life to help each of us live the way of love a little better.
Check out our Library page for interesting books and recommendations that you are welcome to borrow at any time. Our library is open.
We have lifted all mask requirements for vaccinated people and for children under twelve. All people are still welcome to mask, of course, and we ask that unvaccinated people continue to mask.
Looking ahead, we will resume Sunday School for our children in the fall. Stay tuned for more information about that. In the meantime, we are planning summer activities for our children. In principle, we are allowing in-person, inside gatherings. But we will make decisions about particular events on a case-by-case basis
Wednesday fun activities with the children.
Christmas in July
Schedule for the Week:
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; committing ourselves to lives of joyful worship, prayer and the teaching of scripture
The viability of our church can only be sustained with your unending support. St David's offers so much to our parish and to the community through our many projects and ministries. Our parishioners make our church a warm and friendly place to worship, the physical surroundings offer a comfortable and peaceful environment to gather, and Fr. Harvey offers a personal touch in helping us understand the word of the Lord. Please consider making a general donation or a donation to our memorial fund, or our children's ministry.
