Upcoming Youth Events

Posted 5:43 PM by
Fall Formation Programs for All Ages
 
This fall there will be a variety of formation programs offered on Sunday mornings between the services from 9:50 to 10:35 a.m. One Sunday each month we will build relationships within our community through Second Sunday Socials. We will be formed through hands-on-ministry as we make sandwiches for Martha's Table on the last Sunday of each month. Seasonally we will have special events that are Intergenerational with special speakers or activities, like the Painting Table last year. On most other Sundays the focus for all ages will be the basics of the Christian Faith and how we as Episcopalians live out that faith in our world today.
 
Get Involved in Forming Faith - Teachers NEEDED!
 
Would you like to be a part of a planning team for adult, youth or children's formation? Do you like to tell stories, or make crafts, or play games? Maybe you'd like to lead some of our children's programs. Are you someone who likes to discover or work together to find the answers to questions? Sounds like walking with our youth in their faith journey might just be the right place for your ministry. Have you have been on a study tour, or taken a class on prayer, or been involved with a great ministry program? Consider being a presenter for one of our adult forums. Email or talk with Sue!
 
 
 
Children's Formation Programs
 
We begin formation programs for children in September with a focus on what we believe, how we pray, and learning the stories of Jesus. We hope your children will join us for learning, fun, games, activities and growing in faith. Register your children here.
 
Youth Programs for 2016-2017

New Creation: A musical story of Genesis and Easter

Posted 4:12 PM by

 

A musical play based on the biblical stories of Creation and Resurrection will be presented at both services on Sunday, July 24. Longtime St. Dunstan's members will remember the many plays performed by our Junior Choir some years ago. We're delighted to renew this tradition, with some former players (now in high school and college) and some new, younger players. 
 
Please come to see and hear their production of "New Creation" in place of the sermon on July 24.  Jessica Ault and Jeff MacKnight will be assisting.

Children's Formation - Parents' Meeting - this Sunday
On Sunday, June 5 Jeff and Sue will be meeting with the parents of our children to discuss our formation programs. This will take place in the  parish hall from 9:50 to 10:35 a.m. Please join us as we share our hopes and dreams for raising young Christians in our world today. 
 
Graduate Sunday - June 5 at both Services
 
St. Dunstan's has may graduates this year from High School through graduate school. While all of them will not be present this coming Sunday, we hope that when you see them you will wish them well on their next adventure.
 
Our High School graduates include:
 
Alex Berger 

Alex graduated from Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School on June 1 after attending there for four years. Next year she will attend Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut. At Wesleyan, Alex will swim for the cardinals and she plans on doing premed.
 

Elizabeth Douglas

Elizabeth graduated from the Cate School, a boarding school near Santa Barbara, California on May 29 and will be headed back to the DC area. She will attend Georgetown University in the school of foreign service in the fall.
 
 
Tucker Hemphill

Tucker has been attending The Field School and will graduate from there on June 10. After visiting and assessing musical programs and communication programs at various schools, Tucker will be taking a gap year here in DC. He plans to work, develop his music, and do some traveling.
 
Those graduating with their bachelor degrees include:
 
Beau Gomez

Beau is the son of Tony Gomez and he graduated from the United States Naval Academy on May 27 with a Bachelor of Science. He was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps. Beau will report to Quantico, Virginia in September to continue his officer training at The Basic School. 
 

Nathan Hull

Nathan spent four years at Towson University studying applied physics. He is currently applying to the officer program for the Marine Corps and hopes to be accepted into that program this summer.
 

 

 
Those receiving masters degrees include:
 
Jessica Ault

Jessica graduated with a Master's Degree in Library Science with a specialization in Archives and Digital Curation from the University of Maryland's College of Information Studies on May 20. She'll be taking some time off for travel and relaxation before starting a job at Better Markets, a DC-based nonprofit organization dedicated to financial reform, to work as a records and information manager. In this job, she'll get to organize, develop strategies for knowledge management, answer reference and research questions, and develop policies for the organization.

 
Colin MacKnight

Colin just received his Masters of Music degree in organ performance from The Juilliard School in May. He will begin his Doctorate of Musical Arts as a C.V. Starr Doctoral Fellow at Juilliard this fall. (And yes, he, not his father, selected this picture.)
