Welcome to St. David’s!
And thank you for your interest in our small-in-size but big-in-heart parish! Nestled in the rolling hills of beautiful Brown County, Indiana and only 20 miles from the college town of Bloomington, is a beautiful country church awaiting a part time rector to join us in writing the next chapter of our story. We hope to work collaboratively with our new rector to discern together what God is calling us to do, building upon all we have learned as a community.
We are a spiritually diverse parish–that is rich with agape love, unconditional acceptance for all, and an outreach orientation. We’re an active community that enjoys spending time together whether in worship, in planning for events, in caring for St. David’s, or in our monthly euchre games. We laugh a lot. St. David’s is financially sound, has no debt, and has active laity who both lead and participate in making our parish vibrant and engaged. We approach any challenges with heart, commitment, and trust.
St. David’s worships with Episcopal liturgy and our small but mighty choir have drawn new members with beautiful, spirit-filled music. Our members enjoy the challenge and stimulation of engaging discussions, special worship opportunities, and are committed to continuing the development of our leadership. Our parish has done a great deal of healing through healthy dialogue. We work through our disagreements for the good of the parish, and we are excited to discover what God has in store for our community of brothers and sisters in Christ. We look forward to a spiritual leader who will be captivated by the spirit of St. David’s and lead our congregation forward with joy and a vision to bring us nearer to God.
