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!

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.

Website Happenings
Last month, St. Dunstan's trusty old website stopped working, so our website team decided to quickly create a new one. The site was down for a month as we moved content from the old site to the new one, and last week, our new site went live. Though we are far from finished, we decided to go live because the website is vital in keeping everyone up-to-date on all things St. Dunstan's, especially during the holiday season.

This Sunday's Readings

Give us grace, O Lord, to answer readily the call of our Savior Jesus Christ and proclaim to all people the Good News of his salvation, that we and the whole world may perceive the glory of his marvelous works; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
