Community Outreach

Join us as we build bridges from St. David’s Episcopal Church into the world beyond our walls with a variety of volunteer opportunities. For information on Outreach, visit our Bridge Builders Facebook Page and email us at outreach@stdave.org.

Immigration

The topic of immigration has ramifications at our city, state, national, and global level. In response to this, members of St. David’s have already found ways to serve as Christ has called us. Visit our Immigration page to find opportunities and resources to help you get involved. Please feel free to contact Cameron Spoor if you wish to inquire about any of these endeavors.
