Christian Education

At St. David’s we love and value children. They are always welcome during our services!  At the 10 A.M. service, there is a children's sermon.  Young folk are invited to join Pastor Elizabeth on the red carpet for a look at the day's lesson and to get Sunday activity sheets. They can stay at the red carpet to color and listen if they want.

For small children who grow restless, we have a nursery space where you can sit with them.  The service is provided through a speaker.  Feel free to rejoin us when you can.

Sunday school is offered for age 3 through adults and takes place at 9 A.M.

Children age 3 through third grade attend Godly Play. Godly Play helps them to explore their faith through story, to gain religious language, and to enhance their spiritual experience though wonder and play.

Children in grades four and five attend a class that is geared toward them and includes Bible study and a variety of other activities.

Youth in middle school and high school have classes designed to address the unique needs of these two age groups.

When high school students are ready to begin their adult faith journey, Confirmation classes are offered every two years.

Children: Special Events

There are events for children and families throughout the year:

June/July: Vacation Bible School (evening program)

August: Ice Cream Social

October: Trunk or Treat

December: Christmas Eve Pageant


Episcopal Youth Community (EYC)

EYC covers all the youth oriented activities at St. David's.  From Sunday morning formation, to youth group and special activities, EYC has it all.

During the school year, there are opportunities to get to know other youth at St. David’s through regular meetings and special events including Youth Sunday in September, the Progressive Dinner in December, Spring Fest in May and the Youth Lock-In in June when we welcome rising sixth-graders into the EYC.


In addition, we participate in outreach through CARITAS, the men’s feeding program, Thanksgiving bags, Vacation Bible School, and Christmas families. Although we take a hiatus from Sunday school during the summer, the youth continue to meet for fun outings during the summer.

Additional programs like camp at Chanco on the James and the Happening spiritual retreat weekend are available through the Diocese of Southern Virginia.
