Celebrate Loudoun Pride after the Community Picnic on June 4th
We are excited that this will be the first time St. David's has had a presence at a Pride event. It's a great opportunity to connect with the community, welcome people to St. David's (it's only a 14 min drive from the Church) and celebrate the diversity of our St. David's family. Come by after the Graduation Sunday Picnic! All are welcome! For more information about the Loudoun Pride Festival, click here.
Discernment Committee Survey ReminderThe Discernment Committee is delighted with the response so far from those who have completed the parish survey. You have provided the background to the story of St David’s to be shared with candidates for Rector.
If you have not filled out the survey, or you have started but not completed it, there is still time left and we encourage you to do so as soon as possible. It is difficult to over-emphasize how important this exercise is because we want to go forward confident that we have captured from the congregation those aspects we hope to see in our next rector. It will be a major component in the parish profile to be shared nationwide with all Episcopal churches. Potential candidates will review and form an opinion about St David’s that will influence their decision to apply or not.
Please set aside 30 minutes to express your preferences so we can include your thoughts in this process and move ahead with the search for our next spiritual leader.
Thank you for your support and your commitment to St David’s.
Have you been interested in joining our Music Ministry, but don’t have the time or can’t make the commitment? Our Summer Choir welcomes singers of all ages, even if you’ve never sung in a choir before! Each Sunday morning from June 11th to August 20th, we will gather in the Music Section of the Sanctuary at 9:00 a.m. to learn a piece of music to sing in worship. The songs are fun and easy, and singers of all skill levels are invited. Children of reading age and above are also welcome! No commitment is required; come any Sunday and give it a try! Bring your whole family and join your voices with a friendly, inclusive group of singers.

Join us for in person Sunday School classes Sundays after the 10am service in the Annex.
Together we can foster a love for Jesus and an understanding of God's world. It is our goal to support and encourage children through God’s love, one child at a time. Classes are fun and engaging, with a focus on learning Bible stories through hands on experiences such as arts and crafts, songs, and games through nature. Classes meet both outside and in the Sunday School classroom in the Annex, which is the building located outside the church.
Volunteer for Sunday Service
At St. David's, joyful worship nurtures the covenant relationship we have with God and our neighbor. We continue in that spirit as we intentionally plan each component of our new 10am Worship Service. We invite each of you to consider taking an active part in supporting our Sunday service as: Virtual SD Ambassador (on Facebook), Ushers (2), Greeter, Reader, Acolytes (2), and Crucifer. We would sincerely appreciate your time. If you are interested in serving our community in joyful worship, please sign up by Thursdays: Sign-Up Genius.

Realm Application Launch
The church is moving to a new kind of record keeping solution called Realm. It primarily serves the administrative needs of our staff, but it also offers some exciting opportunities to support the way you are involved. Not only will this improve work life for our ministry staff, it will make it easier for our church family to connect with each other, keep up with what's going on, and grow as a connected community of believers. Please check your email for an invite. If you don't see an invite or have questions let us help answer! Visit here to login! Visit here for more information on the Realm launch.
