Lenten Offerings 3/22

Posted 5:00 PM by

Lenten Offerings ... 

We have reached the final week of Lent and move toward the journey of Holy Week. If you have been keeping a Lenten discipline, stay with it for another two weeks. If you haven’t even begun  there is still time to choose something and work that plan for another two weeks or make a decision to engage the liturgies of Holy Week in their entirety. You will be changed in any choice you make to deepen your relationship with Christ and become a better disciple. Read more.

Thursday Evenings


Our last evening of children’s choir rehearsal, simple supper for all and Goodnight God Prayers is tonight, March 19. There is still time to be present as we always have room for more.

  • 5:45 p.m. Children’s Choir and Adult Conversation
  • 6:30 p.m. Dinner for all
  • 7:10 p.m. Good night God Prayers


The following programs continue for the next two Thursday evenings.


Adult Choir Rehearsals 

7:30 p.m. each Thursday evening in Lent. All are welcome to join the choir and those who wish to sing for Easter services are encouraged to come for the first 30 minutes of rehearsal time.


Evening Bible Study ... Living Well through Lent

Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m.  A facilitated conversation using a devotional booklet that focuses on the Sunday gospel reading and with daily reflections on practicing resilience with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind.  Living Well booklets are on the table in Founders' Hall.


 Daily Lenten Morning Prayers

At 8 a.m. each weekday in Lent St. Dunstan's offers parishioner-led Morning Prayer, a brief quiet service with scriptures and psalms. Why not consider stopping by one morning a week on your way to work or after dropping off the kids for a few moments of candle-lit peace and prayer at the back of the church. Enjoy 20 minutes of peace before stepping out into the world.


Other Lenten reflections and growing opportunities ...

Lent Madness - were heading into the stretch run for the Golden Halo for this year.  Vote each day for your favorite saint. Find out all you need to know to make an informed selection.

Two great devotions sites for youth: d365 produced by Passport, Inc. and sponsored by the youth offices of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, the Presbyterian Church (USA), and The Episcopal Church. Videos for your Soul are particularly posted for youth and young adults, but can be used by people of all ages.  You may visit the site daily or just once, and subscribe to receive a daily email with the video of the day.

Lenten Daily Calendars are a great way to keep track of the 40 days and participate in various prayer practices and giving. These are available in Founders' Hall.
