I’m New

Welcome! St. David’s is a growing and vibrant spiritual community. We delight in having visitors for worship, education and fellowship so we invite you to join us at any time to experience God’s love and grace first hand. On Sundays, visit our newcomer table in the Narthex and look for a friendly greeter who can help you find your way and help you learn more about our community. We understand that people often seek a church during a transition in their lives, and St. David’s is here to support and guide you through these life changes. We seek to be your spiritual home.

Our High School youth meet in the Youth Lounge each Sunday morning at 10:30 am over coffee and doughnuts to discuss how their faith helps them interpret the Biblical readings of the day as well as the front-page news of the week.
