Mission Trips & Outreach

Summer Mission Trip

Missionpalooza, July 2017

Rising 7th-12th graders are welcome to join our annual mission trip. July 2019 youth from St. David’s will join Episcopal Strong, a mission trip run by the Diocese of Texas, as they continue the much-needed work of Hurricane Harvey relief while connecting with youth and adults from the larger church.

Harvey hit the Gulf Coast of Texas on August 24, 2017 with catastrophic rainfall-triggered flooding in the Houston area. In the four-day period, many areas received more than 40 inches causing unprecedented flooding. The resulting floods inundated hundreds of thousands of homes, displaced more than 30,000 people, and prompted more than 17,000 rescues.
While not all of us have the time or energy to accompany the youth, you too can be a part of these missions. Will you prayerfully consider supporting our youth through purchasing “Building Up Our Youth” Builder Certificates? As a part of our Construction Team, you will receive periodical emails updating you on the Youth Missioners (what is happening on a Mission trip and their experiences after they have completed their mission trip) and you will be invited to a Construction Team event that will take place in the fall. You will also have the option to receive your own Builder t-shirt. Your name will be printed on the back of the mission trip shirts because your financial support is “Building Up Our Youth”!
Please consider being a part of our summer experience doing Hurricane Harvey relief by purchasing a Building Certificate and joining our Construction Team. Sign-ups will take place in the main lobby of St. David’s on April 14th. You can also pay by cash or check made out to St. David’s Episcopal Church with ‘Episcopal Strong donation” in the memo line at any time, or give online by selecting “Youth Trip Donations” and writing “Episcopal Strong” in the memo line.

Outreach

Day of Service @ Pease Park, April 2017

St. David’s offers many opportunities for youth and families to get involved. Aside from our yearly mission trip, we participate in Day of Service, a church-wide day dedicated to serving our community! Our 2018 date is April 14th. In 2017, we helped mulch, garden, and tend for Pease Park. And we did it all in our St. David’s uniform, tie-dye!

We are involved with service projects in and outside of the church. The youth play a major part in decorating for Trinity Center’s annual Christmas Party for Homeless Neighbors, in leading our Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper in February, and in shepherding children during Vacation Bible School the 1st week of June. If you or your child are interested in getting involved with outreach at St. David’s, contact Director of Youth Ministries Jenny Campbell to see what we’re up to next!
