Welcome

A view up the center aisle of the torch, looking toward the altar, with two acolytes in the foreground.St. Dunstan’s is a warm,  lively Episcopal church whose hallmarks are welcome of all who seek a spiritual home; the nurture of intergenerational community and the active participation of children; the use of art, music, and drama in worship and faith reflection; practicing care of Creation, with our church grounds as a resource; and service and advocacy for those in need.  Visitors and newcomers are always welcome at worship or any other parish event.   Read our official Statement of Welcome here. The short version? Everybody’s welcome, no exceptions!

With the larger Episcopal Church, we affirm and celebrate the lives, marriages, and vocations of LGBTQ+ people. We recognize that Christians and churches have caused deep wounds, and we desire to be a place of safety and healing.

Regular Worship Times

We celebrate the Eucharist on Sundays at 8:00 & 10:00 am. Kids are always welcome in our worship. Our Sunday school classes gather twice a month, usually on the second and third Sundays. We also gather every Thursday evening at 5:30 for Sandbox Worship, a smaller, more conversational worship service of song, prayer, and Scripture, followed by a simple supper.

Recent sermons and announcements are posted on this website every week. Check the links on the left of this page for recent posts.

In response to Christ’s divine humanity, St. Dunstan’s strives to seek, love, and serve God, welcoming all to gather in worship, serve those in need, care for the environment, and listen and respond to each other.

A Welcome Message from Rev. Miranda

Rev. Miranda blessing the waters at the Baptismal Font, with kids gathered around in the foreground.If this is your first encounter with St. Dunstan’s, welcome! We hope you will consider joining us for worship soon. I would love to meet and chat, and to answer any questions you may have about St. Dunstan’s parish or the Episcopal Church. You will find we are a warm and lively parish family, with lots of opportunities for engagement and shared ministry – and an equally warm welcome for those who simply want a place to worship on Sunday morning, without seeking more involvement at this time. I am available to make pastoral calls to anyone who is ill or going through a difficult time – or to have coffee with someone who’s struggling to make sense of it all – or to share conversation and prayer with someone seeking God’s guidance in their life – or to get down on the floor and talk about Jesus with kids. Please be in touch, and let’s explore where our mission as a parish connects with your life, your needs and your hopes. May the grace, love and fellowship of God be with you always.
Rev. Miranda+
