Welcoming everyone to walk through our doors on the journey to Christ


2 Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it. 3 Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.

~Hebrews 13: 2-3 NIV

Recipe for Joy

Recipe for Joy:
 
Sit.
Laugh. 

Dig in the dirt.
 
Walk barefoot. 

Breathe deeply.

Lean in for hugs.

Forge a new path.

Listen to bird songs. 

Follow your children. 

Linger on the front porch.
 
Let laughter pave the way. 
Dance to the hum of crickets and frogs.
  
Feel ice cream drip down your chin. 

Believe everything is an adventure. 

Lean against the trunk of a tree. 

Watch the sparkle of fireflies.

Eat a sun-ripened tomato.
 
Marvel at ripples of water. 

Savor cold lemonade. 

Splash in a pool. 

Give thanks. 

Look up. 

Pray. 
 
Repeat as often as necessary.

Samaritan Update

During this time of pandemic, St. David’s has continued to support the Samaritan Center. Since we haven’t been able to be together to make sandwiches, we have supported them with a monthly cash donation. They have been extremely grateful for our support, and we would like to continue it until such time as we can make sandwiches again. If you would like to help St. David’s with that effort, you can write a check and put “Samaritan Center” on the memo line, and we will use that to support our monthly donation.

The Samaritan Center can our help in other ways:

Donations are needed to service for our Samaritan Center clients
$100 seems to be the average
Any amount would be accepted
      Pre-packaged cookies are needed and can be
dropped off at the church while Kristen is there

The Samaritan Center is also in need of these items:

  • Prepackaged cookies
  • To go containers
  • Plastic forks & spoons
  • Bottled water
  • Bottled juices
  • Sandwiches or any kind on any bread
  • And the "bad" plastic bags if anyone cares to give them up 
Please contact Linda Williams email: lindaverniwiliiams@gmail.com, 315-637-6952

If you are dropping off something to be picked up please contact Linda ahead of time so she knows whether to stop to pick up items.

Thank you for all you have done so far. Please be safe yourselves.

Good Morning Everyone,

1 Samuel 17:57--18:5, 10-16

57On David’s return from killing the Philistine, Abner took him and brought him before Saul, with the head of the Philistine in his hand. 58Saul said to him, “Whose son are you, young man?” And David answered, “I am the son of your servant Jesse the Bethlehemite.”
18:1When David had finished speaking to Saul, the soul of Jonathan was bound to the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul. 2Saul took him that day and would not let him return to his father’s house. 3Then Jonathan made a covenant with David, because he loved him as his own soul. 4Jonathan stripped himself of the robe that he was wearing, and gave it to David, and his armor, and even his sword and his bow and his belt. 5David went out and was successful wherever Saul sent him; as a result, Saul set him over the army. And all the people, even the servants of Saul, approved.
10The next day an evil spirit from God rushed upon Saul, and he raved within his house, while David was playing the lyre, as he did day by day. Saul had his spear in his hand; 11and Saul threw the spear, for he thought, “I will pin David to the wall.” But David eluded him twice.
12Saul was afraid of David, because the Lord was with him but had departed from Saul. 13So Saul removed him from his presence, and made him a commander of a thousand; and David marched out and came in, leading the army. 14David had success in all his undertakings; for the Lord was with him. 15When Saul saw that he had great success, he stood in awe of him. 16But all Israel and Judah loved David; for it was he who marched out and came in leading them.

 
2 Corinthians 6:1-13

1As we work together with him, we urge you also not to accept the grace of God in vain. 2For he says,
“At an acceptable time I have listened to you,
and on a day of salvation I have helped you.”

See, now is the acceptable time; see, now is the day of salvation! 3We are putting no obstacle in anyone’s way, so that no fault may be found with our ministry, 4but as servants of God we have commended ourselves in every way: through great endurance, in afflictions, hardships, calamities, 5beatings, imprisonments, riots, labors, sleepless nights, hunger; 6by purity, knowledge, patience, kindness, holiness of spirit, genuine love, 7truthful speech, and the power of God; with the weapons of righteousness for the right hand and for the left; 8in honor and dishonor, in ill repute and good repute. We are treated as impostors, and yet are true; 9as unknown, and yet are well known; as dying, and see—we are alive; as punished, and yet not killed; 10as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing everything.

11We have spoken frankly to you Corinthians; our heart is wide open to you. 12There is no restriction in our affections, but only in yours. 13In return—I speak as to children—open wide your hearts also.
 
Mark 4:35-41

35On that day, when evening had come, [Jesus] said to them, “Let us go across to the other side.” 36And leaving the crowd behind, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. Other boats were with him. 37A great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that the boat was already being swamped. 38But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion; and they woke him up and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” 39He woke up and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” Then the wind ceased, and there was a dead calm. 40He said to them, “Why are you afraid? Have you still no faith?” 41And they were filled with great awe and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?”
