GRACE SHELTER MEALS, May 26 & 27: On the fourth Sunday of every month, a loyal group of St. Dunstan’s folk provides dinner for the residents at the Grace Church shelter, and breakfast the following morning. See the signup sheet in the gathering area to contribute to this important outreach. Talk with Sue Lloyd or Joan Knudsen for more information. Thanks for your help!
CAN YOU SAY “HELLO”? Then you might be a great Greeter! To enhance our welcome for first-time visitors and guests, we are recruiting Greeters to serve regularly on Sundays. Each Greeter would serve one Sunday every 6 – 8 weeks, as your schedule permits. The Greeters’ job is to be at the doors into the Gathering Area 20 minutes before the service, to say “Hello!” and “Welcome!” and “We’re so glad you’re here!” to folks as they come in – strangers and ‘regulars’ alike. Greeters also help orient visitors and guests, and can help make connections at Coffee Hour. Please sign up in the Gathering Area or let Rev. Miranda know if you’d like to help out with this important and easy ministry!
LADIES’ NIGHT OUT, Friday, May 31, 6 pm: Come for food and fellowship! Talk with Kathy Whitt or Bonnie Magnuson to learn more.
OUTREACH COMMITTEE MEETING, Saturday, June 1, 8:30 am: All are welcome to join our conversations about how St. Dunstan’s can best serve the world with our resources and our hands. We begin with an optional potluck breakfast at 8 am.
