There is always something to be done in your home so you can imagine how long the to-do list for is for ST. David's. There are many things needed to keep our Church running smoothly. There are so many ways to serve our community. So whether you have an hour to give, one day a month, or more, we have a job for you!
Below is a list St. David's current opportunities for 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!
Children's Christian Formation
St. David's is currently seeking Children's Sunday school teachers for ages two years-5th grade. Whether you are a St. David's parent, grandparent, or teenagers, would you prayerfully consider sharing your gifts and time serving as a Sunday school teacher or in a support role? Teaching is a wonderful way to connect in faith, fun, and fellowship with the children, with others at St. David's, and with the child in you! We pray, play, and learn the stories of Jesus and the Bible together.
The Pew Crew is looking for additional members. The Pew Crew helps restock and straighten the church's pews with pens, Hymnals, Books of Common Prayer, Visitors Cards and more! If you are interested please call the church office.
Ushers-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 in the Lord's house. No previous experience needed. Please contact Thomas Nolfa, Head Usher, at church, or email, to be added to the existing teams. Thank you in advance for making St. David's that special place for so many of us!
The Altar Guild, the behind-the-scenes ministry which makes sure that the worship space is ready before and after services, is currently seeking new members and a new Ministry Head. Please reach out to Michelle with any questions or with interest.
The Welcome Committee - 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. Before they hear the first note of music, before they hear the first word of a sermon or before anyone stands up and says “welcome” in the service, most first-time guests have already made a conscious or subconscious decision about whether they’re interested in coming back. Think about that. 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 Janet Haldeman or Alison Smock.
