What can I expect when I visit? We want your visit to our Church to be a warm and welcoming experience. We believe that when you are our guest we are co-hosts with God, who has extended in invitation to each of us to share in the love we have come to know at St. David's. Please stop by our Welcome Center in the main entrance of the Church and a member of our Welcome Ministry will be there to assist you in any way possible. We would encourage you to fill out a Welcome Card, found in the Welcome Center or in the pew racks. The Welcome Card will enable us to send you information about our Church. It can be given to a greeter, member of the Vestry, dropped in the offering plate or the box located at the Welcome Center.
What can I expect as I enter the Sanctuary? As you enter the Sanctuary the ushers will hand you a service bulletin. The bulletin will guide you through all of the service and will give you page numbers for the hymns. The hymnals (blue) and the prayer books (red) are located in the pew racks. Please sit wherever you are comfortable. Some people will be quiet before the service in prayer, others will be eager to greet friends and loved-ones they have not seen since the week before. Make yourself at home in God's house. If you need anything after you've entered the sanctuary, please visit with an usher or ask someone sitting nearby. We'd all be happy to help. Our service is a mixture of very traditional elements, some of them 2000 years and some prayers, readings, or music that is relatively new. All of our worship services point most to our gratitude for God's redemptive love - we call our act of giving thanks together Eucharist, which is Greek for "thanksgiving".
How do I take Communion? The Eucharist culminates in Communion, a shared meal of bread and wine in remembrance of Jesus' death and resurrection. An usher will invited you to come to the altar rail. You may stand or kneel at the rail, though most parishioners kneel. Most parishioners hold their hands out with their palms open, and a minister will come to you to place bread in your hand. You may then take the bread to your mouth or some dip the bread in the wine which a minister will bring in a chalice. You may receive the wine directly from the chalice by guiding it with your hand, if you prefer. If you would not like to receive Communion, simply cross your arms across your chest like an "X" and a minister will offer a prayer of blessing instead.
