30 Days of Prayer
It's Not Too Late to Participate!
We are in our second week of the 30 Days of Prayer. If you haven't started yet, just jump right in! It is a wonderful way to focus on the joy of Advent and Christmas. Each day's reflection is also featured on St. Dunstan's Facebook page. If you have a Facebook account, please be sure to visit our page. Read More (and to download/print the Prayer Guide)
Christmas Pageant Time!
If your child is interested in participating in the Christmas Pageant, please see Jennie Morse or Michele as soon as possible!
Adults and youth as well, please pick up your empty mite boxes on Sunday after church. The full mite boxes will be collected in January at Epiphany. Please donate your change to help curb the Ebola virus in West Africa. Your money will go to buy such things as bleach and water purification devices to help the people help themselves to overcome this dreaded disease. Your "mites" are important! Thank you for your active participation in this outreach to others.
Please Return Your Pledge Cards
Don't worry if you haven't returned your pledge card! You may turn yours in this Sunday (or mail it to the church office!)
St. Dunstan's Music Series and the Parish Choir present an Advent service of Lessons and Carols on Sunday evening, December 14th at 7:00 p.m.
A simple and elegant service, it begins with a ceremony of Light, during which the choir enters accompanied by handbells. Then nine lessons are read, which span The Creation through the birth of Christ, with a particular focus on the Prophesies and the Annunciation to Mary. Each lesson is followed by a carol which has been chosen to reflect on the lesson just heard.
We have several obsolete vinyl banners that might be useful for covering firewood, toys, junk, etc. Please contact Roy, our Facilities Manager, soon if you are interested! Also, we need fine quality French Market and Silent Auction donation items for February's Mardi Gras. Exploit your creativity!! Look through your drawers, closets, attics, basements - look up, look around - many items worth an action are all around!!! See Roy if you would like to donate any items.
We greatly need snacks, bottled water, and other drinks for our after-school tutoring program. We have quite a few teens who come to tutoring very hungry and thirsty after a long day of school, and our supplies are running low. Thank you so much for donating to this impactful outreach program!
Scrip is always a winner, in fact a three-time winner! When you purchase Scrip on Sunday morning after each service, St. Dunstan's receives a percentage from your purchase, the company benefits from the use of your gift card, and you (or whomever receives the card as a gift) will enjoy using it and having the security of not carrying cash. Scrip is a win, win, win!
