2013_09 Our Web Has A New Look  

September 1, 2013
by S. Ernst

Wow – The Web Site has Changed!

Well-l-l-l, yes and no – YES, it has a new look and the names and placement of selections have moved, but NO, the information available on the old web site has not changed. Many of the selections have moved from the left side of the window to the bottom or under the 'General' tab..

Early this Summer, Fr. Chris asked me about a web site make-over as our current web site has been in operation since the summer of 2008 and was looking a bit dated. After browsing for current web design trends and talking with our web site provider, a new design was selected.

I hope you like it and if you have any questions or corrections, please talk to me or send me an email:

The program also has an evangelical outreach to the friends of St David’s youth.

2013 Vacation Bible School Recap

We would like to thank the many students and volunteers who participated in our Vacation Bible School - Everywhere Fun Fair - Where God's World Comes Together in August.

The students learned about neighbors who are friendly, giving, loving, bold, and welcoming. We actually "welcomed" 43 students and had an equal number of volunteers.

Volunteers decorated, taught, cooked, cleaned up, helped with crafts and projects, acted roles, operated audio-visuals, taught songs, and anything else they saw that needed doing. It truly was a labor of love and we are thankful for each person.

Pictures are on St. David's website which might encourage you to be part of the fun next year!

Youth Education at St. David’s

We are looking forward to another year of working with the youth of the parish. Once again we have something for all ages.

Godly Play is available during the beginning of the service for children who are four years of age up through 2nd grade. The children then return to their families during the Peace.

During Adult Forum time, following the service, church school class is available for four year olds through high school. There is a primary class and a later elementary class using curriculum that follows the lectionary.

There will also continue to be a Rite 13 class for our middle school age students as well as a J2A class for our students in high school. New this year will be an emphasis on exploring individual ministries with adults in the church mentoring the older students in specific areas of ministry.

We look forward to this expansion of opportunities for our students.

‘Godspeed’ – A Quick Look at St. David’s Ministries – speed dating style
September 8th, 2013 11:30AM

On September 8th at 11:30, St. David’s will take a look at our many ministries.

Tables will be set up with fruit, muffins and centerpieces listing the ‘major theme of the ministries to be discussed and vacant seats will be at each table for the parishioners as they move around “speed dating” style. Each ministry rep will have one minute to talk about the ministry to parishioners; this against the backdrop of breakfast served by Haiti Outreach Mission.

As parishioners move around to each table, we will have a concept of the breadth of ministries available at St. David’s, and hopefully having a ‘person, name and visual image’ will help us better remember who to contact afterward.
