“Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.”
Worship is at the heart of all we do at St. David’s. From the multiple regular services on Sundays to the great services of the church year, we are a worshiping community who come together to offer our praise and prayers to God and to grow in community in the presence of the Lord. We encourage you to join us often to enter more deeply into the worship of God.

Ushers to Help
Please see any of our ushers for assistance when you come into the building. There is also a greeter at the Welcome Table located near the front doors of the Narthex.
All children are welcome during our services. Adults guide children Pre-K through 5th grade to the Choir Room for the Children’s sermon during the 9:15am service. Our new Family Worship service takes place on Sundays at 9:30am. Childcare is also available for ages 3 months to 5 years from 8:30am to 12:15pm for those attending the 9:15, 9:30, and 11:30am services.
All Baptized Christians are welcome to take communion. If you would prefer not to take communion, you can remain seated, or come forward with your arms crossed to receive a blessing.
St. David’s follows the services outlined in the Book of Common Prayer 1979. The services include Old & New Testament reading, a reading from the Gospel, a sermon, and traditional communion.
Formation for all ages takes place immediately following the 9:15am Chapel service. See the formation page for locations and topics. Stay tuned following the service for a livestream of the Rector’s Forum.

Acolytes (Grade 5 and up)
The Acolytes of St. David’s serve the clergy and congregation during services as crucifers, torchbearers, Gospel bearers, and banner bearers.
The Altar Guild prepares the sanctuary for worship, and cares for the vessels, linens and vestments used in worship.
The Flower Guild arranges flowers for the altar during our Sunday worship services and Holy Days.
Lay Assistants support our worship services by offering selections from the Bible as Readers, leading our weekly Prayers of the People as Intercessors, and serving the Blood of Christ as Chalicists
Prayers of the People
The Prayers of the People writers prepare the prayers for weekly services and special events.
Ushers offer hospitality to those who enter our doors, assist those needing to find a seat for worship and provide guidance at communion.
