Coins for Kenya

We had such an incredible response to last year’s Coins for Kenya endeavor, that here’s hoping you have been saving since last year’s collection. We raised $896 in coins last year, which pushes the bar really high, but what an opportunity to beat last year! That’s enough to send 2 boarding students to school for a year or provide seed and fertilizer for 5 farmers. Look for the special Kenya cloth bags in the Narthex and Undercroft or plastic Ziplocs work, also. The goal is to collect the bags anytime between now and the Kenya dinner on April 5, so start digging!

Beckmann’s Bike Brigade—Sunday, May 17th

An extraordinary experience marked by passion, inspiration, determination and fun. Feel the electricity at the starting line and the remarkable support throughout your journey as we unite in our mission to end MS.


Some of you know that parishioner Dan Beckmann was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2018. So much progress with medicine and treatment has been made, but there is still work to be done. The goal is to find a cure!


St. David’s is partnering with Westwood Professional Services where Dan works (as does parishioner Chris Carda) to participate in the Twin Cities Ride 2020 the morning of Sunday, May 17th. This event has options for the casual rider and the serious bikers (you can chose from routes of 10, 25, or 45 miles). The event starts and ends at the Lab Brewery in St. Paul.


By participating, we hope to demonstrate our love and support of Dan, to raise money for MS research and an eventual cure, and to build bridges outside of our church doors.


We know that not all can hop on a bicycle and join us. Please know that we also welcome your prayers of support.
