Our faith journey is life-long and our relationship with God, ever evolving. Saint David's offers Christian formation opportunities for all ages on Sunday mornings and Bible Study each Wednesday.
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:
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. This Sunday school program helps them to explore their faith through story, to gain religious language, and to enhance their spiritual experience though wonder and play. 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.
THE WRITTEN WORD
Morning Eucharist & Bible Study
Join Pastor Elizabeth each Wednesday to study Scripture more deeply. We celebrate Eucharist at 10:00 a.m., followed by Bible Study at 10:30.
We are currently studying the Women's Lectionary by Ashley Wilcox, which highlights at least two texts featuring women every week.
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.
Previous book club titles:
Lisa Davison, More than a Womb
Sophfronia Scott, The Seeker and the Monk
Laura Fabrycky, Keys to Bonhoeffer’s Haus
Amy Frykholm, Wild Woman
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.
Little Free Library
All are welcome to visit our Little Free Library which is fully stocked with a variety of books for adults and children. There is a sitting area where you can enjoy the pleasures of reading. For more information about Little Free Libraries, visit their website at littlefreelibrary.org.
