Christmas Poinsettias and Music

If you would like to make a donation for a Christmas poinsettia or to our music program in celebration, honor, or memory of someone you love, please use one of the forms in the narthex (by the water wall) and turn it into the church office by Dec. 18.  We will acknowledge all gifts in the Christmas Eve bulletins. Thank you!

Greening the Church

Please join in the Greening of the Church on Sunday, December 16 after the 10:30 service.

Tidings of Comfort Service

On Wednesday, December 12, at 7 p.m. we will have a Tidings of Comfort Service at St. David’s.  This service is especially meant for those struggling with grief, loss, discouragement and depression in this holiday season.  Join us for Tidings of Comfort from scripture, prayer and song.

Our Church Financially

Our pledges and offerings income took the largest drop of the year in October of $7,500 under budget.  Year to date, this makes us $4,700 behind budget with two months to go until year end.

Building and grounds is over budget due to minor maintenance and utilities. This is going to increase before year end, since we have to replace a freezer and our heating system needs repair.

Pledge payments for the first week of November were higher than normal for the first week of the month; so hopefully, these last two months will be an income turn around that will put us ahead for the year.

Pledging for 2019
Through the first week of November we have received 53 pledges for 2019 representing $180,710.  This is 47% of our 2018 pledges and 55% of the 2018 pledge amount.  Of the 53 pledges, 22 were increases, 2 were decreases and 29 stayed the same as 2018.

PLEASE, don’t forget or neglect to pledge for 2019.  It is very hard to budget without a reasonable idea of income!

Doorstep Christmas 2018

Please see the poster in the narthex with the information for this year's Christmas wish list.  Place unwrapped gifts in the collection box.  Gifts will be delivered weekly.  The LAST delivery will be on December 10.  There is no Angel Tree this year.

If you have any questions, call Sharon at 478-1329.

Donate Toiletries in December


During December St. David's is collecting toiletries and hygiene items for the Rescue Mission.  Suggested items include deodorant, shaving cream, razors, sanitary napkins, bath soap, body lotion, shampoo, toothpaste and tooth brushes.  Often you can find great bargains at any dollar store or Big Lots. Let's do all we can to help out the folks at the Rescue Mission.  Everything we do is appreciated!

Bocce Ball


Drop-In for Bocce at St David's on Tuesday mornings at 10am. Please join us! The game is great fun!

Advent Exploration

Come rest in the healing power of God as we ponder the Scripture passages for Advent.  Through reflection, prayer and discussion, we will seek and find deeper meaning in the Word of God.  Deacon Mary will facilitate this exploration as we meet in St. Philip’s Room from 9:30 to 10:15 the first four Sundays in December.

Gatherings for 6, 7 or 8

The Sign-up Sheet for Gatherings for 6, 7 or 8 is now on the bulletin board in the Narthex.  These groups will meet monthly January thru April, 2019 for an evening of fellowship.  If questions, please contact Amy DuPuis, Bev Carlson or Ethel Edwards.
