Heart Garden Planted at Saint Davids
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.
