Happenings @ St. David's

Following Jesus can lead us to challenging places and situations. Jesus often calls us to expand our definitions of who is in and who is out, who is lovable and who is not. He insists that no one is outside the reach of his embrace. His grace is for all.  

His message was not popular then. Now, in our turbulent, divisive times, his message still challenges us. But the message of the gospel is clear: love God, and love one another. At all times and in all places. No exceptions. Until we are all one.  

God grant us the strength and courage to live what we believe.

Please join us in welcoming all of our new Vestry Members. At our Annual Meeting on 1/27, we voted in Tabatha Bragg, Chris Broadbent, Kondeh Greaves, Colgate Salomon, and David Sheatsley. We would like to thank our outgoing Vestry members: Mike Gibson, Theresa Luby, and Mary Vish. We thank God for all of these faithful servants. On Sunday 2/10, we will hold a special Vestry meeting immediately following the 11 am service in the Adult Ed room.
