Advent Offerings

Simple Gifts
Simple Gifts are Christmas gifts of charity that make a real and tangible difference in alleviating hunger, domestic violence, homelessness, loneliness, and fear in the Austin community. View the 2018 Simple Gifts Brochure or stop by the ministry table in Sumners Hall each Sunday during Advent to learn more and see how you can make a difference in someone’s life this season. It’s also a great way to finish your Christmas shopping!

Blue Christmas Service
Wednesday, December 19
Not everyone is up and cheery for the Christmas holidays. Dealing with a number of situations make parties and joviality painful for many people in our congregation and communities. All are welcome to St. David’s Blue Christmas Service, which will be a time of quiet reflection, prayer, and worship, accepting where we really are in life, while we seek healing and hope. 6 p.m. in Bethell Hall.

Caroling

Holy Grounds, Café Divine, and EYC go caroling! We will have our 3rd annual caroling event 9 a.m.-noon. Come in your Christmas gear ready to sing! We will leave for our first location at 9:30 a.m. Email Taylor Cloyd if you plan to attend or with questions.
