St. David’s is a youth-friendly church in which we continue to strive for the youth to have a conspicuous presence in parish life. Our church treasures young people – welcoming them into our midst; listening to them; responding to their needs; empowering them for the ministry of the baptized, supporting them with prayer, time, facilities, and money. Our young people assist with a variety of ministries during the 10:15 am service.
Currently youth are encouraged to come to Joyful Noise, our praise and worship band which meets Sundays at 11:45 am and to participate in various outreach programs.
A new program begins in the Fall called “Kids’ Time.” The Rector meets with elementary school-age children from 4:30 – 5:30 on Thursdays, teaching them about Jesus with snacks, prayers and music. A youth confirmation program is being planned for the Fall of 2015.
