Greetings!

We hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day tomorrow! See below for 10 classic Thanksgiving Prayers.

Look below too for those big events coming up soon! From Karaoke to Wreaths Across America, we are going to have a fun Advent.


Perhaps say this prayer on Thanksgiving Day at some point:

Collect for Thanksgiving Day.
Almighty and gracious Father, we give you thanks for the fruits of the earth in their season and for the labors of those who harvest them. Make us, we pray, faithful stewards of your great bounty, for the provision of our necessities and the relief of all who are in need, to the glory of your Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Karaoke November 30
From Taylor Swift to Charles Wesley, come and sing or listen to some amazing and fun Karaoke on November 30 between 3 and 5! This idea was initiated by our youth choirs! Feel free to stay for the Saturdays@Six Service afterwards and see what it is about.
December 14:
Wreaths Across America
Sign-up here to go to Wreaths Across America this December 14. We will lay wreaths on the graves at Arlington National Cemetery. We will meet at the church at 6:15am and return by 1pm. The early morning rise is worth it! We encourage you to bring a non St. David’s member to this event. Parents, we need a couple of drivers (to the metro) and need you to sign up too.  
December 15 Party Time!!!
Save the date for this year’s Christmas party on December 15 in the evening! Your party planning team is already on it cooking up some amazing plans!

Email youth@sdlife.org if you are interested in helping.
Thanksgiving Prayers
Do you pray on Thanksgiving? If this isn't part of your practice, maybe this is the year to try it. We found this article that gives 10 traditional Thanksgiving prayers, but even if it is "Ruba dub dub, thanks for the grub," it is a prayer giving thanks to our Lord to whom we owe all thanks.

Christmas is Coming!
Yes, some radio stations have already switched over to full-time Christmas music. We will offer 5 services this Christmas at St. David's. Especially for those who may not know where they want to go, let them know they are always welcome here.
  • 3:00 - Family Service with Praise Band
  • 5:00 Family Service with Praise Band
  • 7:30 - Traditional with brass and choir
  • 10:30 - Traditional with brass and choir
  • 11:00 Christmas Day - Traditional
Know Someone at College?
Do you have a student at college? We'd like to send them something before exams in December. Send their address where they may receive a small package to Fr. Will (wpackard@sdlife.org).
