RECEIVING THE SACRAMENT OF HOLY BAPTISM in our 8:00 am worship service is Albanie Hersh.  Albanie is a senior at South Western High School, where she is a member of the lacrosse team.  We welcome Albanie to the Christian Faith and St. David’s!


A CENTERING PRAYER GROUP meets on Wednesday, 6:15 – 7:00 P.M. in the Library, Centering Prayer is a practice of sitting in silence as a way to listen for and be aware of God’s presence. Over time, the practice trains the mind to consent to God’s presence and rest attention there. Pastor LaDonna will be facilitating the group.   All are welcome to participate and no prior experience with this prayer form is necessary. We will learn and practice together.  The group will meet each Wednesday through August 28.  


“BUSY:  RECONNECTING WITH AN UNHURRIED GOD” is our mid-late summer worship series, through September 1.  This series invites you into practices of making room, clearing out, slowing down, and prioritizing for the sake of reconnecting with God.
