Adult Forum

Adult Forum meets each Sunday at 11:15 a.m. (fall to spring), following the 10:00 service.  During this time, we explore the Gospels and consider how Christ's teaching can best be implemented in our modern lives.

 

We use a Scripture-based curriculum published online by the Episcopal Church, but we also like to share programs developed by St. David's. 

Adult Forum Curriculum:

"Finding and Experiencing Gratitude"
45 minutes to an hour

Episcopal Youth Community

Grades 6 to 12

 

Youth in 6th through 12th grade are invited to explore scripture and its meaning in our lives more deeply during our Episcopal Youth Community (EYC) meetings at 11:15, from fall to spring. Through EYC, "the Episcopal Church strives to walk with young people on their journeys from childhood to adulthood, recognizing their gifts for ministry, their questions about spirituality, and their desire to make a difference in the world."

 

Beyond these meetings, "EYC" covers all the youth-oriented activities at St. David's, including youth group and special activities.

Age 3 to 5th Grade

The children meet each Sunday at 11:15 a.m. (fall to spring), following the 10:00 service.  

Godly Play is for preschool through 3rd grade.

Godly Play's mission is centered on "nurturing spiritual lives by honoring the centrality, competency, and capacity of children."

Sunday school for grades 4 & 5 includes Bible study and a variety of other activities.

Book Club

Quarterly

With a rector who’s also a writer and a church full of book-lovers, we recognize  that reading together helps us grow spiritually. We offer a quarterly nonfiction book club facilitated by the rector, and sometimes the books’ authors join part of our discussion via Zoom.

Next up:

Sept. 8, 2022 | 7 p.m.

Lisa Davison, More than a Womb (author joining via Zoom).

Previous book club titles:

  • Sophfronia Scott, The Seeker and the Monk

  • Laura Fabrycky, Keys to Bonhoeffer’s Haus

  • Amy Frykholm, Wild Woman

Library

Library

We have a small library of books to help us discern what it means to be a Christian, especially an Episcopal Christian, and how to live a Christian life.

 

Due to a shortage of space, we prioritize nonfiction books published in the last 10 years that are not easily available from our local public library. We also procure copies of our book club books, so if you missed a past title you can still check it out.

 

Books may be borrowed for one month.
