The Journey Continues with the Season of Advent

at St. David’s by the Lake

St. David’s is a warm and welcoming faith filled church family,

inviting you to join us for our Sunday worship.

An old CPR locomotive bell sits inside the church steeple.

Each Sunday, at 11:00, you can hear it being rung to call people to gather for worship.




All Sunday services include

·         Something special for the children each Sunday

often taken outside to enjoy the lake view at the picnic tables
