Please take a look at some of the many exciting programs and the people involved that make up our St. David’s Fellowship.
Annual Potluck BBQ
You bring your meat (or other entree) and grill it up in the Rectory yard! We even supply the grills! The Stewardship Commission arranges for salads, sides, dessert, and soft drinks (you’re welcome to bring adult beverages). A great annual social event!
Fundraisers as Social Events
Just about everything we do at St. David’s centers around food, and whenever we eat together, everyone has a great time! Even when we’re raising money! For details on any of the following events, check our Events page and keep checking This Week at St. David’s.
- Annual Food & Wine Pairing Event – a favorite now in its 12th year! Our team of expert cooks and our resident, amateur (though highly skilled) sommelier develop a delicious, inventive five course menu, with each course paired with a different wine to delight the senses.
- Fish & Chips – a mini-fundraiser each year during Lent, we bring in one of the sought-after fish & chips caterers in the area for a delicious English tradition.
- The Thrill of the Grill! – following the success of the Food & Wine pairing events, our chefs and sommeliers work each year in the fall to present another, more casual event. Again, there are five delicious courses, but this time EVERYTHING is prepared on the grill – including salad and dessert! And each course is paired with a different beer to give the meal an entirely different experience.
- Beefsteak Dinner & Silent Auction – our biggest fundraiser of the year. While you’re bidding on all of the amazing prizes that have been donated, feast on unlimited filet mignon!
“Foyer,” according to the dictionary, is an entrance or welcoming area for meeting and greeting. The mission of the Foyer Groups at St. David’s is to provide small group fellowship so that people can become better acquainted. Each year, groups of three to five couples or family groups rotate meeting in members’ homes or the parish hall for a simple meal. The main course is provided by the host of the month, with the other group members providing the remaining courses. These communal meals provide an intimate venue for establishing or deepening relationships. If you can’t commit to being a regular participant, which includes hosting or co-hosting one dinner, then sign on the “Guest” list, and one of our hosts will invite you for a specific date.
Readers Circle Book Club
The Readers Circle Book Club consists of people who love to read and enjoy stimulating conversation when coming together to share their thoughts. This is a reading group with something for everyone’s interest: wonderful book selections, stimulating conversation, and friendship! The Readers Circle meets on the first Monday of each month, from October to June (not January) in the Skylight Room at St. David’s, 7:00 pm.. Newcomers are welcome to join at any time.
T’ai Chi Chih
St. David’s offers T’ai Chi Chih practice sessions every Wednesday afternoon, 2 PM, downstairs. Currently we meet throughout the year. Contact: Sondra Odian firstname.lastname@example.org Continue reading for more highlights and information about T’ai Chi Chih sessions.
Bring your knitting/crocheting! While the group doesn’t have a regular schedule yet, they are meeting periodically, and connecting informally around the church all the time. You’re welcome to work on your own project, or join in making something for one of our outreach projects. In the fall, the knitters are working on gifts for seafarers through the Seaman’s Church Institute. In the spring, the focus is on baby blankets to be distributed through The Linus Project.
