Gospel of Mark class begins next week

Join us beginning October 22 for a 5 week study of Mark’s Gospel, led by Kevin Smith. We’ll meet in the conference room starting at 9 a.m. each Sunday through Nov 19. Since our Sunday readings will come from Mark’s Gospel beginning with the first Sunday of Advent, this is an especially timely study. Hope to see you there!

Holiday Bazaar

We will be collecting items during the week of October 30. More information to follow as we get closer.  We are looking for next-to-new gift items, books, baked goods and Thanksgiving/Christmas items. We especially need holiday mugs!
Please bring your items beginning Monday, October 30, to the classroom next to the office. Let’s make this the best year ever!
 
Please let me know if you are interested in working any time that week/day/set up.

New Feature

Mother Vicki's sermons are now available on our web site!  They can be found under the Publications menu (oddly enough, under the Sermons link).  You can also seem them by clicking HERE.

New Forward Day by Days are here!

The newest edition of Forward Day by Day (November through January) is available in the narthex for a donation of .50 or $1 (please use envelope provided and put in offering plate or under church office door).

We are in search of additional Eucharistic Ministers to serve the chalice during our worship services.  This is a wonderful ministry and we’ll teach you how to do it and let you practice before you hit the big time of serving in worship.  We could use more folks for all our services.  Our faithful few are getting worn out and  we’d like to give them some help.  If this is something you are interested in learning more about, please talk to Mother Vicki.

Congratulations, St. Davidians!

We recently asked for volunteers interested in making and delivering food dishes to parishioners in special situations: at the time of a funeral, recovering from hospitalizations, etc. Twenty-three of you responded! Thank you!

We are calling this the Food Saints Committee and it will be chaired by Kay Melkus. Thank you, Kay.

Clergy will coordinate with the parishioner/family and Kay will coordinate with the volunteers about food dishes and delivery. For more information, contact Deacon Mary or Kay Melkus (273-5692).
