St. David's offers many opportunities for members to get involved in the life of the church to build relationships with one another and grow deeply into their spirituality. Below is a list St. David's current opportunities to engage in ministry.
Some ministries are suitable for individuals, some for teams, and some might even work for a whole family. Get together and make it fun! We hope you will find something that makes your heart sing.
Sinclair House Clean Up Saturday, October 22 10.00 a.m.
Join the St. David's Vestry for fellowship, fun and... yes, some cleaning too! Saturday, October 22, the Vestry will host an indoor-outdoor clean-up of the Sinclair House! We have recently completed an outdoor renovation of the Sinclair House with new siding, gutters, and paint so now it's time for the finishing touches.
Bring your yard tools! Bring your gloves! Bring your hammers and screwdrivers! Bring your family and friends!
If you can volunteer a pickup truck, please contact Tom Erdmanczyk. We will gather at 10:00 a.m. at the house, complete our various tasks, and regather for lunch at 1 PM. This is an opportunity to spend some time with fellow Saint David’s members, and to get a good look at the improved Sinclair House!
If you're looking for a great way to get involved in our services please consider becoming an usher. You'll serve at only one service a month, so the commitment is minimal. This is a ministry of hospitality, as your main role is to make your fellow parishioners comfortable. No previous experience needed. Please contact Thomas Nolfa, Head Usher, email, to be added to the existing teams. Thank you in advance for making St. David's that special place!
Do you like taking pictures? Are you interested in learning more about videography and Livestreaming? If so, we are looking for a team of people to help join this Ministry to help with St. David's Social Media, Website, Livestreaming, and digital media presence. Please contact Rebecca Cline, Parish Administrator, to learn more.
Studies have shown first-time visitors to church make up their minds whether they’re coming back in the first 10-15 minutes of their visit. The Welcome Ministry reflects the heart of our St. David’s community by making all who enter our doors feel wanted and cared for. The time commitment is small…the rewards are great. We would love for you to join this ministry. Questions? Please contact Nicole Highsmith or Robert Malpeli.

Flower Ambassadors is a Pastoral Care Ministry that requires a minimum of your time, yet brings a great deal of comfort to the parishioners you deliver flowers to.
