FROM THE RECTOR
Welcome! We are so glad you found us! St. Dunstan’s is a warm, active, and growing congregation. The people you will meet here come from all walks of life, from infants to elders in their mid-nineties. What binds us together is a love of God and our neighbors, a gratitude for all the gifts God has given us, the joy we find in creation, and a commitment to follow Christ.
St. Dunstan’s is a parish of the Episcopal Church, one of the daughter churches of the Anglican Communion. As Anglicans, we come from a tradition that is both catholic and reformed. That means that our roots are in the ancient church, but we also have the flexibility to correct our course when needed. The foundation of our faith is Jesus Christ, and we base our decisions on Holy Scripture, the traditions of our Church, and the reason with which God has blessed us. As Anglicans, we view creation, including humankind, as essentially good, although flawed. This “glass-half-full” attitude allows us to live a joyful life, fully engaged in the world, working, through Christ, to help move the world from where it is to where God means for it to be. One of the chief goals of the Church is to help those among us and around us to be reconciled to God and one another through Christ, and to encourage them to grow into the persons that God created them to be.
Our worship is central to our life together, and we invite you to participate fully with us. Just as Jesus shared the bread and wine with his first followers, he is present with us today in this family meal we call Holy Communion. Through communion, we share in the forgiveness of sins, the strengthening of our relationship with God, the participation in the risen life of Christ. All baptized persons, regardless of age or church membership, are welcomed to join us for communion. Additionally, any one at all is welcome to come forward and receive a blessing. If you are not baptized, and wish to be, please speak to a member of the clergy.
We hope that we will have an opportunity to get to know you in person. If you would like to know more about St. Dunstan’s, please contact the church office at 918-492-7140 or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
