Hazard area!

We have had a light not only burn out by our tower, but the glass cover for the fixture has also shattered.  This has resulted in a hole at the SW foot of the tower at the west parking lot entrance.  You will notice the area blocked and taped off to mark the hazard area.  Please be mindful of this - both to prevent possible tripping, but also to avoid any shattered tempered glass fragments!

15 DECEMBER UPDATE:  The manufacturer of the broken light is no longer in business, and the company that bought them discontinued this model.  Replacement parts are no longer available.  Our electrician has removed the broken unit and will replace it.  Until then, please continue to be careful in this area!  We anticipate this will be done prior to Christmas Eve services.

Are you getting our emails??

Have you been receiving our weekly “This Week at St. David’s” email?  Some people are having trouble finding our emails in their inbox (especially those with Gmail). Gmail puts our emails in your “promotions” tab...please check there and you should be able to find it! As always, let the office know of any problems you might be having so we can help you.

Staffing Change

At the end of the year, our office administrator, Jacquie Lightcap, will be leaving St. David’s for a new job with the League of Women Voters of Kansas.  While we will miss Jacquie’s wonderful organizational abilities and people skills, we wish her all the best in her new position. If you come into the office, please take the opportunity to thank Jacquie for all she has done for St. David’s.

Needed: Personal Hygiene Products

During December the collection items are personal hygiene products for the women and men at The Topeka Rescue Mission.  A few suggestions include:  toothbrushes, toothpaste, bar soap, razors, shaving cream, deodorant, shampoo, sanitary napkins/tampons, body lotion, shampoo, etc.  To stretch your dollars, consider shopping sales items and buying at discount and dollar stores. It’s so important for people to have these simple necessities.  Please be as generous as possible. Many thanks in advance!

Notice something new in the Nave?

Earlier this year, the vestry established a Sacred Arts committee for St. David’s. This committee is charged with the ministry of evaluating and advancing the use of art, decoration, etc. at St. David’s. Committee members include Eva Brown, Linda Stanfill, Allison Malmstrom,  Amy DuPuis, Susan Byler, and Mother Vicki. Ultimately, they will be looking at and making recommendations about stained glass, but their first task is defined as “warming up the sanctuary.”  The beautiful new Advent banners and candles are a result of their work. The banners are a memorial gift in honor of LeRoy and Nancy Flickinger. Committee members have also contributed financially to make this new Advent look possible.


Greening the Church

Please join in the Greening of the Church on Sunday, December 17 after the 10:30 service. The Junior Daughters will provide Christmas cookies and hot chocolate and coffee for all! Donations will also be accepted for their Trip to Triennial this summer.
