This summer at St. Dunstan’s we’re studying the Book of Tobit together, through Bible study, art opportunities, and our Evening Bible and Arts Camp. Tobit is a rousing story of faith, adventure, risk, romance, and mystery, from a part of the Bible known as the Apocrypha. Read the Book of Tobit online here!

Our summer Evening Bible & Arts Camp will run from Sunday July 31 through Thursday, August 4, from 5:30 – 7:30pm every evening.  Dinner is included. Our Camp is based on the book of Tobit.  Drama, art, and outreach will be integrated into our curriculum. Kids ages 3 to 10 are welcome to participate; need not be members of St. Dunstan’s. We ask a $10 donation per child, which can be waived in case of financial need. Registration forms are available at the church or by calling 608-238-2781, or download it here:

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 meets on the second Sunday of the month during the school year, and we have a children’s sermon on the fourth Sunday of every month. Nursery care is available from 9:45 – 11:30 in the summer, and from 9am to 11:45am during the school year.

We also gather every Thursday evening at 5:30 for “Sandbox Worship,” a smaller, more conversation worship service of song, prayer, and Scripture, followed by a simple supper. Guests and newcomers are always welcome.

Our Mission Statement & Statement of Welcome

Our Mission Statement: 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.

Wondering if you’d be welcome at St. Dunstan’s? In 2012, our Vestry adopted a Statement of Welcome. The short version? Everybody’s welcome, no exceptions! Read the full version here.

A Welcome Message from Rev. Miranda

mirabaptism

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.
