Creekside Service August 19th

One Service Only at 9:30 am

Sunday, August 19, at 9:30 am we will be gathering at the creek for one outdoor service of Holy Eucharist with Baptisms. Plan to join us! If you are able, please bring chairs and blankets to sit on. We will be renewing our baptismal vows with water from the creek—wear water shoes if you are interested in getting into the water. We will also have basins of water on the lawn for those not interested in getting into the water. Parking is available in the St. David’s Center Parking Lot next to the creek. NOTE: There will be no Nursery this Sunday.


Creekside Photo Contest

Here’s your opportunity to use your photography skills and possibly win a $20 gift card. Bring your camera or phone and take photos of the
Creekside Baptism service – all aspects – and submit your best pictures to Beth at bharvey@stdavidsparish.org. Then Beth, Peg Woellner and Basil Owen will judge the best photo.

Also, if you took a great photo or two in the last year and haven’t sent it to Beth, please send a high resolution version to her. If possible, please provide names of those in the photos.

 

What’s the Vestry Up to These Days?

At its regular July meeting, the Vestry began the processs of developing a “Safety Plan” for St. David’s. When finished the plan will provide guidelines for emergency situations. We also approved the concept of re-keying the church to improve security and support our Safe Church guidelines. We approved an application by one of our boy scouts to provide a bee habitat in the woods on the west side of our property as an Eagle Scout project. The bees will not be a nuisance and are a variety that does not have stingers. We previously reported that May was a tough month financially. June treated St. David’s much better, and we thank all of your for keeping your pledges on schedule during the summer months. The next vestry meeting will be held on Monday, August 20 at 7:00 pm in the Library. Vestry meetings are always open to all St. David’s members.


Save the Date! St. David’s Gala will be November 10th

The Gala Committee is looking for large dollar items that would make a great item for the live auction. Examples: Use of a recreation home or resort time-share, sailing or a boat cruise, professional sport tickets, concert tickets, or a hosted dinner. Other ideas are welcomed. Please contact David Pearson, 952-412-7678.


Some of the committee members have served many years and would like to volunteer in other areas of St. David’s. If you are interested in helping with the Gala you would be mentored by the volunteer who has been doing it. Please contact David Pearson, 952-4112-7678. This is the opportunity to be a part of the church’s largest fundraiser of the year.
