Community & Feeding Ministries
Our parishioners make more than 6,000 meals every year for those experiencing hunger and homelessness in our area, and we support organizations committed to providing housing resources for families in need. We always welcome non-perishable food donations for the food pantries and we support volunteers for these ministries.
Christian Formation for our children and youth is one of the most important ways we live into our mission as a church. St. David’s seeks to provide a variety of developmentally appropriate ways for our children, youth and their families to grow in their faith and make a difference in the world. This is accomplished in a number of different programs including: infants in the nursery, children and youth in Sunday morning education, weekly youth ministry activities, as well as outreach and service work in the broader community and the world.
St. David’s is blessed to have three international ministries. Between these locations, St. David’s parishioners have built homes, schools, hospitals, and churches that have touched thousands of lives, as well as provided scholarships for children to attend school.
The Gift Shop & Art Gallery at St. David’s
Located on the church’s main floor adjacent to the reception desk, The Gift Shop features gifts crafted by artisans from all over the world as well as fashionable vendors. There are also greeting cards, books, Bibles and a variety of religious items to support your spiritual life. The Art Gallery features paintings, photography, and pottery art by local artists, also for sale. Not only is the shop & gallery a wonderful resource for all of your gift-buying needs, it is a significant resource for funding the church’s international outreach programs in Cuba, Guatemala, and Uganda.
The Grant Program
St. David’s Outreach Commission assists programs seeking to make God’s love known to all of God’s children through our Outreach Grant Program. We specifically seek to help organizations that involve St. David’s parishioners in hands-on ministries.
World Gifts Giving
Every financial contribution you give with World Gifts brings a smile to children in Cuba, Guatemala, and Uganda, and can change their lives forever. Our alternative giving program allows you to make a direct donation to our outreach missions for yourself or a loved one, while giving the gift of hope to others.
