The Feast of Pentecost
One of the simple traditions of this feast has become the wearing of red by all who attend worship on this day. So dig in your closets and find something red. A great way to participate in the coming of the Holy Spirit and being on fire for Jesus!
Adult Formation
Sunday, May 15St. Dunstan's Growth Group
This will be a great opportunity to hear from members of the Growth Group about initiatives 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 that kind of number, 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. We need everyone's participation and enthusiasm to reach our goals for growth. 
Children's Formation 
This Sunday, May 15 marks the end of our formal formation classes for the year. Children will learn about the Day of Pentecost and celebrate the birthday of the church. Children will gather in the youth room to watch a video about this feast day and participate in some fun projects together. Please come and join us!. 
We celebrate on May 22, with an all Parish Eucharist at 10:00 a.m. (using the style of our family service) followed by the Parish Picnic. It will be a great day with good food and fellowship - including a blow-up obstacle course! If you'd like to help with the festivities - please email Sue.
Youth Formation
This Sunday, May 15, youth will help lead the fun projects of Pentecost with the children in the youth room.
Graduate Sunday  
Is anyone in your family graduating this year? That could be from high school, college, or graduate school. Please let Sue know. We plan to honor all graduates on Sunday, June 5 at both services.
