Zoom Meeting: Sunday, January 24, 2021, 10am
For the 2020-2021 school year the Backpack Buddies program at St. David’s is currently handling 130 students for the program this year. We have set up a link to a Wishlist on Amazon for donations for the program, any items ordered will be shipped to Discovery Elementary, we will pick up and bring them back to the storage location for packing and sending back to the schools. The 3 schools this year are Cedar Lane Elementary, Discovery Elementary and Broad Run High School. Please share the link with friends, family and colleagues so we can help fill the pantry.
The Alleluia Ministry is so appreciative of the generosity of the St. Davids' members. The Alleluia Ministry is receiving donations on Mondays at the Annex from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. A complete list of items needed can be found here.
International Outreach Opportunity
A new, international outreach opportunity is taking shape at St. David’s. Last February, two teams of volunteers - including a ‘scout team' from St. David's - travelled to Santa Rita, Honduras with the Partnership for Clean Water and Education (http://www.PCWE.org). PCWE and its Honduran partner/host, Agua para el Pueblo (http://www.apphonduras.org) cooperate to build and gift sustainable, gravity fed water delivery systems to some of the most deserving communities in the world. While plans for a return trip in 2021 are uncertain (COVID), our spiritual and financial commitments are unwavering. For more information, feel free to reach out directly to Tim Vorce or Jeff Grimm.
Together in Spirit - Distance Learning Support Community
After several planning meetings among members of St. David's who wanted to help support families in our community struggling with the challenges of distance learning for Loudoun County Public Schools, we decided one of the most effective ways we can connect and support each other is by using a Facebook group. If you know of someone who needs support or wants to help but does not participate in Facebook, feel free to share the link to the Needs and Resources survey here, and a member of the working group will follow up individually.
Parent/Child Service Reading Teams
Our online services continue this summer adding creative ways for more participation. You and your child/children are invited to read the Psalm or the Prayers of the People together.
