Important Worship Updates - Please Read

Some changes have been made to keep us safe!

May 14, 2021

These changes will likely be in place until more people are vaccinated in our area. Questions or concerns can be directed to our Vestry Leaders or The Rev. Michelle Ortiz. - We will no longer print and pass out bulletins. (Please print out your Bulletins at home, .pdf files of the Bulletins may be found on the St. David's website here, and here, the St. David's App, and the Sunday Morning Reminder email.) - We will no longer sing during the in-person services. - We will distribute Communion after the dismissal. Other notable changes in the Diocesan update include:  - Outdoor gatherings may include any number of people as long as distancing, masking, and other protocols are maintained. Maximum times of outdoor gatherings are flexible. - Food may be consumed by individuals or pods when outdoors as long as the food is not shared between groups and masks are worn except when actively eating or drinking. There is no limitation on time for outdoor gatherings. - Indoor gatherings may now be up to 90 minutes in length. Masking is required at all times indoors. - Summer day programs for children and youth may be planned and held according to both CDC/ACA guidance AND our Indoor and Outdoor Gathering protocols (including masks and 6-foot distancing, even out of doors). If food is part of a day program with children or youth, it should be consumed outdoors.

Covenant Groups

Covenant Groups are small groups of 5-8 people who meet once-twice a month to foster Spiritual Friendship. Groups meet at a time and place determined by the group. Each meeting has a check-in, study determined by the group, and prayer. Covenant Groups are safe spaces. In a large church such as St. David’s, small groups are the key to forming close and lasting relationships with other Christians as you grow closer to our Lord. As Jesus said in the book of Matthew, “When two or three are gathered in my Name, there too am I.” Check your mailbox Sunday, September 26 for a form. Covenant Group Members will be in the hall to answer any questions. Quotes from members: “Two years ago, I entered a room of strangers. Today I enter a room filled with friends.” “I have been in a Covenant Group with six amazing women. We read, study and talk about God, Jesus, Bible verses and the parables, but we also love, support and encourage one another.” “I can say without a doubt that this group has been my rock and my anchor-holding me steadfastly to this church. Our times have been filled with reflective moments as well as joyous fellowship.” “My Covenant Group has become a group of sisters for me!”
