St. David’s recognizes that there are times when you need prayers, and times when you can join with us to pray for others.
If you have needs that you would like for us to pray for, or if you would like to join with us praying for others, or if you have a pastoral concern, please contact the clergy at 615-352-0293 or by email.
In time of need or crisis when you need someone to talk to, let the clergy know that too. Pastoral care and prayer is always available to aid the healing process in a variety of ways.
Prayers of the People
During celebrations of the Holy Eucharist on Sunday mornings, we pray publicly for people in need of healing, for those who are hospitalized, for those requesting strength to deal with life’s problems, for the departed, and for those who mourn.
Please alert us to these and other needs that may arise. If you would like for us to include a person in the Prayers of the People, please contact us.
The St. David’s family is here to help parishioners who are in need. The Agape group ministers to members of the parish through phone calls, visits, and delicious meals delivered in times of trouble.
Daughters of the King
The Mary and Martha Bethany chapter of The Daughters of the King (DOK) is a Lay Order for women who are communicants of the Episcopal Church, churches in communion with the Episcopal Church, or churches in the historic Episcopate.
Our mission is to extend Christ’s Kingdom through prayer, service, and evangelism. St. David’s has an active Order of 15 Daughters who meet the first Tuesday of the month in Sanders Hall from 7:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. We welcome all women to visit and become members.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
This ministry began at St. David’s about four years ago, inspired by the original group from Hartford Seminary in Hartford, Connecticut, in 1998. The group works informally, knitting or crocheting shawls with intentional prayer for those in need of comfort and solace.
Several times a year the shawls are gathered for a special blessing by Father Rick, and congregational blessings as we go to receive the Eucharist. Blessed shawls are given to individuals in time of illness, need, or crisis, to enfold the recipient in love, prayer, and support.
