Happenings at St. David's

Pray with us and read on to see what is upcoming at St. David's Church.

Let's put ourselves into the hands of the Lord, and pray that God will bless us and our families during the wonderful months of summer. May we all help make our home a place of relaxation, joy, love, peace and safety.

Have a blessed week!

News from the Vestry
The Vestry, at its upcoming Wednesday meeting, will be considering names of individuals who have expressed interest in filling the two remaining vacant Vestry positions – a 1-year term and a 2-year term. If you are interested in serving on the Vestry, now is the time to answer the call! If you feel called to serve, please contact Katherine Goodwin at Register@sdlife.org.   
It is imperative that St. David’s has a full leadership team in place as we continue the work, across many dimensions, during this transition period. We are blessed to have a strong and committed Discernment Committee that will help us determine where we’ve been, where we are and where we want to be as we search for a new rector. We also need a thoughtful and equally committed 9-member Vestry. Pray hard and often.
