Posted 6:39 PM by

HOMECOMING SUNDAY IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER!

Mark your calendars now
Sunday, September 13!
 
                                  9:00 a.m. Family Eucharist
                                  10:00 a.m Brunch for all in the Parish Hall
                                  10:45 a.m. Traditional Choral Eucharist

Both liturgies will include the Blessing of Backpacks.

All members are encouraged to bring your backpacks, briefcases or school bags to receive a special blessing this day. We will also be collecting school supplies for The Bishop Walker School and these will also be presented and blessed on this day. So while your out shopping in the next few weeks, even if you don't need to fill a school supply list, pick up a few items for the boys. A list of items desired by the school will be available next week.

Children & Youth Formation ... on-line registration  

Please be sure to fill out these forms so that we can adequately prepared to received your children in our formation programs which begin in September.

If you have children who are infants through grade 5, please use this Form

If you have young people in grades 6 through 12, please use this Form

Youth and their parents will also need to complete the Year-long Permission form to participate in any activities that will take us off the grounds of the church.  Because this form requires a signature, it is in paper format.  Copies are available in Founders' Hall and on the youth page of the website via this link.

Faith Formers Needed

Are you called to spend just a couple hours each month with the children of St. Dunstan's? The requirements for this ministry are a love for children and/or youth, a willingness to grow in faith with them, and the gift of your time and talents. And yes, there is an expectation of participation in a one-time class on Safeguarding God's Children. But the benefit of this ministry and how you will grow outweighs the concerns you may have. Please talk with Sue if you are interested in joining the formation leaders for this coming year. We would especially like a few of our men to join this group. 
Time commitment is only a few hours each month, as we do not have classroom activities each week.
 
LEGOS
Do you have any Legos filling up plastic bins around your house? Have your children grown out of these wonderful plastic blocks? We know just the place that needs them - St. Dunstan's!
This year our older Children's Formation group will be using a new curriculum called - Building Faith Brick by Brick. This curriculum tells bible stories and encourages the children to create a portion of the story with Legos. Any and all types of Legos are desired - figures, blocks, and platforms to build on. A bin will be in Founders' Hall to accept your donations.

Quito Reflection

Posted 5:25 PM by

Experiencing  Hospitality in a New Way

Over the 10 day trip that Sue and I took, we found one commonality between all households over in Quito. They were all naturally hospitable. I don't mean the type of hospitality like we are used to here such as we all get served food and then grab seconds after everyone has had firsts. I mean the type of hospitality where the guest gets all the food they can eat and then the others get fed. 

This really ties into something that I have tried to bring back - trying to go beyond the type of hospitality I'm used to and be even more welcoming. 

This is just one observation that Sue and I noticed while in Ecuador.
