SAVE THE DATES


·        Friendsgiving (our annual Thanksgiving potluck meal) will be Sunday, November 19 at 6:00 pm

in the Undercroft. Bring your friends and neighbors! Turkey will be provided; bring a dish to share.

Suggested: A-J bring a side; K-R bring a salad; S-Z bring a dessert. We need volunteers to cook the

turkeys, help set up the Undercroft, and help clean up afterwards.


·        Advent Lessons & Carols will be Sunday, December 3 at 5:00 pm, followed by a reception in

the Undercroft. December 3 is the first Sunday of Advent this year – a day which normally falls during

Thanksgiving weekend. Advent Lessons & Carols features glorious Advent music provided by the choirs

of St. David’s, interspersed with lessons from Scripture. This lovely, traditional service leads us into

Advent and reminds us that while we prepare for Christmas, we prepare primarily for the Second

Coming of Christ in power and great glory. 


·        Sunday, December 24 is both the 4th Sunday of Advent and also Christmas Eve. We will

observe the 4th Sunday of Advent at 8:00 am in the Chapel with a celebration of Holy Eucharist. We will

celebrate Christmas Eve later that day with celebrations of Holy Eucharist at 4:00 pm and 10:30 pm in

the Church. There will be no 9:30 celebration of Holy Eucharist that Sunday.

FAITH, FAMILY, FRIENDS

We are so grateful for the generous support that St. David’s parishioners provide. As the presentation

on Oct. 22 reminded us, St David’s depends on parishioner contributions for 80% of our operating budget.

Our parishioners are generous, and we have come to see that as directly linked to that sense of Faith, Family,

and Friends that permeates St. David’s, from young to old. It is a core part of our identity. Initiating,

maintaining, or growing your pledge is all about spiritual generosity. It reflects your personal gratitude

for God’s gifts AND makes possible our mission in Glenview and well beyond.

In short, St. David’s budget is so much more than dollars and cents. It’s a snapshot of who we are as

the Body of Christ. But we can’t ignore the dollars and cents. Just as every St. David’s family member

matters, every contribution to our operating fund matters.

If you have pledged before, we humbly request that you consider increasing it in 2018. If you have

not pledged before, we humbly ask that you consider what your pledged financial support can mean

to the life of this congregation.

St. David’s needs everyone’s support in order to sustain (and grow!) our mission and ministry.

Pledge materials have been mailed out to the congregation. We ask that you bring your completed

pledge card, sealed in the small envelope included in your packet, with you to church on

Sunday, November 12, where they will be offered at all 3 services.
