Adult Formation
 
May 1 & 8: Conversations on Religious Diversity
On the first two Sundays in May our Adult Formation will focus on both religious diversity and tolerance. We shall begin with an overall program and conversation with Eva Cavaleri, the chaplain at the National Cathedral School. Eva and her family have been attending St. Dunstan's since moving to the DC area in August. In our second week we shall welcome Salih Sayilgan,who teaches Islamic Studies at Catholic University in DC. It should be a great two weeks of learning about the many people who live and work around us.
 
May 15: Growth Group
On this day we hear from members of the Growth Group about initiatives that they are developing for St. Dunstan's. On the day of Pentecost, the birthday of the Church, there were over 3000 new Christians added to the community in Jerusalem. While we are not expecting those kind of numbers, we do hope to grow our parish by 10 families each year. Come and hear how you can be a part of this exciting time for our parish.

Five Talents

Posted 6:14 PM by

 
Many of us want to help the world poorest people, but we don't know what will really make a difference. Now, we do: our own Anglican organization, FIVE TALENTS, changes lives in 8 countries by lifting up women who want to support their families.  
  • 80% of participants are women. 
  • 100% receive business training to run a small business. 
  • 95% of small loans are repaid. 
  • Each small loan benefits on average 7 people.
 With its 1000 Friends Campaign, FIVE TALENTS can improve the lives of 70,000 people over the next three years, in three countries: Kenya, Burundi, and South Sudan. A monthly commitment of $85, from 1000 Friends, over 3 years, will make all the difference. 
 
This Sunday 4/17, is FIVE TALENTS SUNDAY at St. Dunstan's.  Come to either service, and hear the presentation at 9:50 a.m. by FIVE TALENTS board members and staff, with videos from recent work in Africa. Is God asking you to change a life in East Africa? Please prayerfully consider joining me in this commitment of $85 per month for 3 years.
Peace, Jeff MacKnight

Children's Formation
This week, Sunday, April 10, the children will be playing outside (weather permitting) or watching a video in the youth room, having their own Spring Social, the youth will be supervising.
 
On Sunday, April 17 all will learn about the Lost Sheep.

This Sunday, April 10 the youth will be supervising the children during the formation time - weather permitting out in the playground or watching videos in the youth room. Either way there will be treats and fun involved.
