Christian Education Forum
Calling All St. Dunstanites!
On Sunday, January, 15th, the Saltshaker Class and the Drop-in Bible Study will NOT meet, so that all the adults from BOTH services may attend a special Christian Formation Forum in the Parish House.
In the surveys completed last spring, the majority of parishioners said they wanted educational classes at the church. To that end, we will be discussing on the 15th what kinds of classes and study opportunities we want, and when we want to hold these classes/studies.
It has been determined that the best time to have classes is on Sunday mornings. If we hold classes between the services, there is only a half hour available, which for any substantive study, is not enough time.
SO, please bring your ideas for possible alterations to the service schedule to the meeting. And what alterations, if any, are you willing to make, in order to make room for adult education classes?
BONUS: any lengthening of the education time on Sunday morning for adult study, would also lengthen the time that our children and teens can study together!
Youth Ministry Support Team Meeting
Happy New Year!
On Sunday, January 22nd from 9:10 - 9:45 a.m., there will be a meeting for our Youth Ministry Support team. This team consists of all parents of youth in grades 6-12, as well as other parishioners interested in supporting the spiritual development of our youth.
At the meeting, we will provide updates regarding our current SPARC program, plans for a new youth leader, and ideas about how you can support this ministry. Please let Mark Alcorn know if you can attend. He will send a follow-up message regarding a location for this meeting.
