New Newsletter Fall 2014 online

The congregation of the Presbyterian Church of Saint David’s is called to meet immediately following the morning service on October 5 to consider approval of the financial matters relating to the renovation of the Sanctuary space and related projects. This meeting should be very brief and yet is very important.

“Why not put your own spin on Nova Scotia’s time-honoured tradition of welcoming newcomers – one that dates back over 400 years to the Mi’kmaq providing early European settlers with food, shelter and survival skills. Share Thanksgiving is a program that matches established host families with new Nova Scotians for Thanksgiving Dinner in the host’s home.

 A family that prays together derives strength, solace, and inspiration from that act of worship.  A prayer group will gather in the minister’s study at 10 a.m each Sunday.  All are welcome to  join in this special time of fellowship.  If you have any requests for prayers, please pass them along to Rev. Stright or Valerie Macdonald.

The World Council of Churches maintains an Ecumenical Prayer Cycle website.
