New Horizons


New Horizons will meet on Thursday, May 23rd to have lunch and visit the American Toby Jug museum in Evanston. We will meet at St. David's, stop somewhere for lunch and then on to the museum. Watch the Sunday bulletins. Please tell Donna Chandler or Ruth Berdick know if you will join us or if you want to know about Toby Jugs.


 

 

GIVE AND TAKE OFFERING

 

Beginning June 2, and continuing each month on the first Sunday, St. David’s will support the Northfield Twp. Food Pantry with a Give and Take Offertory. As you give your monetary

gift into the offering plate at the Offertory, you will also be encouraged to take a slip of paper

from the usher. Each slip will identify a staple food or paper product item. You will be encouraged to take that slip home, attach it to your grocery list, purchase the item when next you go shopping, and bring the item to church with you the following Sunday for distribution to the Northfield Twp. Food Pantry.

 

For those who make their pledge offering to St. David’s monthly, quarterly yearly, or electronically and thus often by-pass the offering plates, this is also an opportunity for you to participate fully in the offering liturgy on Sundays.  

 

We will do this at both the 8:00 and 9:30 services on the first Sunday of every month. 

 

 

KNITWITS 

 

The KNITWITS (aka, needlework guild) meet Thursday nights from 7-8:30 pm.  We typically meet in the Rector’s office. Some of us are working on caps or scarves for use by mariners (via Seamen’s Church Institute Christmas on the River project) or by homeless people via Connections for the Homeless or Night Ministries. One of us is crocheting sleeping mats for homeless people using plastic grocery bags (aka “plarn”) and a giant crochet hook. Still others of us are working on projects for friends and family and are enjoying the sociability of the Guild.


If you’d like to knit caps or scarves, the patterns we are using call for US Size 6 or 7 knitting needles (straight or round), and worsted weight yarn – preferably acrylic or acrylic-wool blend. (Michael’s or JoAnn’s are good resources for inexpensive yarn). 


Whether you are a novice or an expert, come and join us! Trouble-shooting and tutoring are available.
