The History of Resurrection Episcopal Church

On March 1, 1966 the first worship service of Saint David's Episcopal Church was held on this property.

The Rev. Frank Dearing was the first Vicar of Saint David's from 1966 to 1969.

The Dearing Chapel is named for him.  He also built the first altar.  The processional cross, the patten and chalice used were from his early ministry.  The altar cross and processional cross were a gift from Christ Church in Ponte Vedra.

The Building Committee consisted of Mr. Howard Harman, Chairman, Mrs. Frances Paul, and Mr. Earl Raye.

The Architect was Mr. Willis Stephens, and the Builder was Mr. William E. Cellar.

Most of the furnishings were from other churches in the Diocese.  All Saints' Parish gave the chairs.

When Our Merciful Saviour was destroyed by fire they gave us the Lecturn, the baptismal font, the prayer desk, the altar cross, the eucharistic candle holders, and the Bishop's chair.

The Dedication of Saint David's took place on the 4th Sunday after Pentecost on June 27, 1971 with The Right Reverend E. Hamilton West, Bishop of Florida, and The Rev. E. Boyd Coarsey, Jr., Vicar

In the early part of 1997 Saint David's and another mission church Celebration Episcopal Church, began to have discussions about their life and ministry.

As a result of those discussions they decided to merge and become one church.

The first combined service was on May 18, 1997 under our new name:  Resurrection Episcopal Church.
