NEED SHELTER IN A STORM?
Fr. Derbyshire has authorized the use of the parish hall to church members who may need to evacuate their homes and have no evacuation destination. If you need to take refuge in the church, you MUST call Fr. Derbyshire, so arrangements can be made. You will need to bring with you all items you will need for your own comfort.
HAVE YOU CHECKED THE WEBSITE TODAY?
In an effort to add to our church family, it is important that our website is viewed regularly. Not only will you find the most up to date news of the church, but you'll increase our visibility in search engines. By simply viewing different areas on the website regularly, you add to the numerical tally of 'hits' which in turn, helps us get to the top of the list when someone goes online to search for a church.
Also, while it's easy to sit home and be proud of the place in which you worship, you can help the church flourish by going to the 'SERVE' section on the website. To find more ways in which you can help, look for 'How You Can Help' and see if any fit with your capabilities. The list is ever-changing and oh, so needed.
We want to hear from visitors and members, alike! The cards, found in the racks in every pew, are designed to help communicate with each other. Visitors can let us know about themselves and their wishes on the 'VISITOR' side of the card. On the reverse side, MEMBERS can request adding people to the prayer list, requesting visitation, notifying the office of address or phone number changes, or just make suggestions and comments. The cards are to be placed in the collection plate to be given to the appropriate staff member.
NEW & IMPROVED WEBSITE!
In case you've been on vacation and missed using the website to see what's happening in the world of St. Dunstan's...the website has evolved! Content has been moved around, and more information is available than ever before!! You may need to peruse all the drop down titles to find what you're looking for, but it's there. Be sure to check the featured events scrolling across the top of the page. Clicking on a featured event often takes you to the appropriate link.
~ Before you put your envelope in the offertory basket, please be sure to write the number from the lid of the box, on the envelope. Otherwise, the office has no way of knowing from whence it comes.
