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.
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.
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.
Registration is now open for the first Diocesan youth event of the year. This new event, ROOTED, for High School Students, grade 9-12, is being designed for youth who are in confirmation programs and those who are interested in growing in faith. Sue has been a part of the planning team and Tucker will be attending and assisting with the music for the event. Come and join us. September 18-20 at the Bishop Claggett Center. Information on registration is being sent to youth and parents this week.
Stayed tuned for other events and programs for all youth in the next few weeks. The Coffee House will reopen in September and plans are underway for parish and area-wide activities. These will be open to all in grades 6-12.
