Refugee Outreach

Posted 7:23 PM by

 
REFUGEE OUTREACH

Refugee Welcome Kits:  We have a very generous response and the welcome kit items (e.g., household necessities like linens, table ware, kitchen equipment, cleaning and toiletry items and baby supplies) are collecting in the foyer.  We hope to take the first wave of kits to Lutheran Social Services within the next week or ten days.  We will continue collecting Welcome Kits for several more weeks. (Flyers itemizing the kits are available near the Refugee Kits sign on the table).   Additional participation opportunities are on the horizon with Lutheran Social Services, St Columba's and International Rescue Committee.  

Also, thanks to all of our neighbors and friends (who don't attend St Dunstan's) who are participating and also spreading the words to their friends and congregations.  Good News is contagious!

For further information, contact Ray Donnelly (301-320-6146).

Formation 1/22/2017

Posted 7:11 PM by
Children's Formation ...
 
Follow Me: would we stop what we are doing and follow?
 
This Sunday, January 22 we hear one of the stories of Jesus calling his disciples who were fisherman. In this version he calls two sets of brothers, Andrew and Simon (Peter) and James and John. They are doing their daily work, probably sorting and fixing their nets after an early morning out in their boats. All Jesus says is follow me, and off they go leaving their nets, boats and even their father. 
This week our children will learn about not only how Jesus called the fishermen, but others to follow him and how he asked them to fish for people. Please ask your children what they learned in their class today. 
 

Youth Formation ...

Dunstan's Youth Group - Thursday, January 19
All 5th through 12th graders!
Dinner 6:30 p.m.
Program 7:00 to 8:00 p.m.
 

What do we believe?

Over the next couple of Thursday evenings we will begin to look at the Creeds, what the Episcopal Church believes and how we as individuals make choices about what we believe. Then we will look at how our beliefs help us to make day to day decisions. Decisions like - How do we treat others? Will we cheat or lie or steal? Who are we called to love? All of these decisions and choices are formed by our faith.

Did you ever wish you had a better grasp on the Bible - the big picture - main events in the story of God's people through the ages? 
 
This Sunday, January 22, we'll continue to explore the "big" Bible narrative through five major acts or moves that define our faith: Creation, Slavery/Liberation (The Exodus), Learning How to Live (the prophets), Jesus Changes Everything, New Creation in Christ. Please join us in the Parish Hall

HELP ST. DUNSTAN'S HELP REFUGEE FAMILIES
 
Many members of St Dunstan's and many of our neighbors have begun to collect "Welcome Kits" for refugee families coming to this area. You can help these families get started with their new lives by providing "welcome kit" items for their households. Kits of these types are needed: Toiletries, Cleaning supplies, kitchen set up, baby supplies, household linens and tableware. 
 
For details, see the "Sign-up Genius" at the website
 
 
and choose the items you can supply. There, you can see what has been pledged and what is still needed.  Remember, we will be making more than one of each kit, so duplicate kits are welcome. (Thanks to Jessica Ault for setting up this service.) 
 
Just bring your items to St Dunstan's and leave them under the table in our foyer, near the stairway.  We will be delivering accumulated items to the refugee agency (Lutheran Social Services) periodically. 
 
Join the mailing list for this project: Call or email Ray Donnelly at 43raydon@gmail.com or 301-320-6146.
