Parish Groups and Ministries

Please contact the Church Office for additional information on any of these:

Altar Guild

Participate in the vital work of setting up the sanctuary for services. Assistance is welcome for both the Weekday and Weekend services. Parishioners may sign up to donate flowers in memoriam or in special celebration or thanksgiving, by signing up on the flower list on the wall in the hallway across from the offices.

Hospitality and Welcome

Never underestimate the power of a smile and a warm welcome! Our greeters serve in our Sunday services to create a warm atmosphere and experience for the first time guest and each member of St. Davids.  And after the service, join us for refreshments in the hall.

Benevolence and Pastoral Care

Our mission is to foster a strong sense of community and family by caring for one another in good times as well as in times of need. We express the love of Christ by meeting practical, physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.

Buildings and Grounds

Among many other things, our Building and Grounds team is responsible for the maintenance of all buildings and the care of our Church property.  If general maintenance, light construction, painting and landscaping is something you have a knack for, there is a place for you to serve.

Baptism & Confirmation

Anyone who has been baptized is a member of the Christian community.    When an infant is baptized, the baby is too young to make the necessary promises him/herself; they are made on behalf of the godparents and parents who promise to instill the Christian values in the child.  Confirmation is a special service where the older child or an adult affirms or reaffirms their beliefs.

Kid’s Church

Kid’s Church is held Sundays.  Children participate at the beginning of the Sunday service and then go off for their own activity based Kid’s Church.  They join in the regular service during the Eucharist.   Kid’s Church welcomes new children and adults interested in teaching or assisting.

Choir

Our small choir supports and enhances our congregation in song every Sunday.   Accompaniment is usually in piano and the occasional flute.   To accommodate hectic lifestyles, practices are limited one hour prior to service.   During festive seasons like Christmas, the choir organizes a Christmas concert, open to everyone and invites musicians from the community to be part of the program.   If you like to sing or can play a musical instrument we encourage you to come on out and share your gifts with us.

Finance Committee

Our finance committee diligently prepares the budget and manages the accounting of the Parish financial resources.  They collaborate with the Diocesan Synod office on the fiscal health of the Parish.

Youth Group

As part of our Confirmation program, youth from St.Davids and St. Peter’s engage in an activity based youth program that combines fun (eg mini-golf or an afternoon on the beach) with education.

Mission and Outreach

Responsible for assisting those in our community and throughout the World, who are in need and support.  Informs and promotes designated outreach programs for on-going parish support. For more information, see the Outreach page.

Ladies’ Fellowship

Ladies of the parish relax at the home of one of its members, the second Friday of every month, around 5:30 pm.   They share pot-luck appetizers and discuss what is going on in the Church and the community and find ways in which they can reach out and help.

Men’s Fellowship

Men of the parish meet with men from St. Peter’s once a month for breakfast, sometimes with a guest speaker, but always with fellowship, and lively discussion.

Weddings

At St. David’s we would be delighted if you celebrate the beginning of your new life as a married couple.   Our facility is available for rent for use of your ceremony and/or use of the hall for a small reception.  We have a full kitchen to use for meal preparations or for your caterer to prepare their set up.

Funerals

At a time of loss, St. David’s can be a place of comfort, safety and hope.  Our facilities are available for rent for the use of your funeral, or celebration of life and /or use of the hall for a small gathering.   We have a full kitchen to use for meal preparations or for your caterer to prepare their set up.

Special Services

One of the highlights is the Christmas Eve Family Service.   It’s all about family, about our kids, about the Christmas story, carols, peace, joy, love and hope.   At Easter, there are additional services Good Friday and Easter Sunday Family Service.
