Bake Sale - Sept. 4th!
Once again, the infamous bakers from St. Dunstan's will be offering their delectable delights after the 9:00 and 11:00 services on Sunday, Sept. 4th. Dieting? No problem. Help support our missions by baking and donating something scrumptious, or purchasing a treat or two for someone else. Please deliver goodies by Friday, Sept. 2nd during office hours, if possible.
'Evangelism' simply means sharing the message of Jesus Christ in everything we say and do. It is the responsibility of every Christian! Unclear about how you can take part in spreading that message? Click here to learn how and be part of making the world a better place.
Did you know St. Dunstan's offers a variety of books for sale? From modern novels to old classics, these slightly used books are priced at much, much less than in stores.

Reading never goes out of style!

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.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS:
~ "SILVER AND TIN" SUNDAYS
The first Sunday of every month is designated "Silver and Tin" Sundays. Parishioners are encouraged to bring pocket change (the "Silver"); and canned, boxed or paper goods (the "Tin") to church to be presented and blessed for use with our missions. See more details in the 'Weekly Newsletter'.
~ MISSION SUNDAY
The third Sunday of every month is Mission Sunday with the focus on supporting some of the missions important to St. Dunstan's. Did you know we not only support people in our own neighborhood, but those abroad? Learn more about the numerous missions we support and how you, too, can help others.
~ WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?~ Have you wondered where the money goes when you donate your pocket change for our Silver & Tin Sunday, or when you buy goodies at our holiday bake sales? Here’s a breakdown of where your support goes:
Chuck & Joan Dewing (Port Missions International), St. George’s Church in Baghdad, the Smith Family in Chile, the Miller family in Honduras, and the Marentes family church plant in Los Angeles each receive $50 quarterly. Bishop George Pierce in Nepal receives $75 quarterly. Fr. Luis Gonzalez and Iglesia del Buen Pastor (Church of the Good Shepherd) in Davie, FL, receives $100 per month. We are also able to donate to our local missions as they request, and we are able to make occasional donations to mission needs in the Diocese.
