United Thank Offering (UTO) to Kick Off June 26


The little blue boxes are back at St. Dunstan's! Join us Sunday, June 26 for our UTO kick off.
UTO is celebrating over 125 years of ministry within the Episcopal Church. It is a
long-standing grassroots tradition in many parishes for members to use the UTO
offering as a daily spiritual practice to thank God for His blessings. Participants put
a coin each day in their blue box as they reflect on how God is showing up in their
lives.
After collection, UTO offerings are then distributed via grants to worthy causes
across the Episcopal Church with many grants being awarded over the years to
groups in Maine.
Boxes and accompanying information will be available June 26 for us to use
over the summer. Our collection Sunday will be August 21.
Celebration! June 19: The last day of the Sunday School year.
Sunday, June 19 is the last session of Sunday School for this year. We will practice our song, "On Eagles Wings" to
sing when we join the service upstairs and we will have a party for the children with games and treats. At the end of
the church service we will make a special presentation to each child. We hope all the children, their parents and all
teachers who have attended Sunday School this year can be with us.

Summertime and The Livin' Is Easy - EZ Coffee Hours


To celebrate the ease of summer, we are introducing a lighter approach to our coffee hours. Gone are the
sign-ups to host or cohost. Retired is the idea that one or two people sponsor an entire coffee hour on a
weekly basis. Instead, if you have something you wish to bring in to share, please do so on any given Sunday.
Anything brought in will accompany our coffee, tea and juice which will always be provided by the church.
Some weeks we may have much and some weeks we may have little, but we will give it a try through June and
see how this works.
If you wish to be a "barista" and help put the coffee on, come around 930 a.m. any Sunday to join in the fun
in the kitchen and help with light set up. Please note that the juice cups we use during coffee hour are
recyclable. Please place them in the recyclables bin. Thanks!
Our Sexton, Lori, offers excellent cleaning services. She is looking for new clients. Please call her
at 404-3205.
Our work during the month of May at the Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry is
completed. We served 238 families on the 12 open days. 32 members of our
parish participated, including folks from 7 to over 80 years old, making this a very
successful effort. Thank you all for your fantastic support.

Rectors Discretionary Fund
St. Dunstans has a Rectors Discretionary Fund (RDF) for the use of our priest. These funds are used for
outreach expenses deemed appropriate. Your donations by cash or check to Mother Johannas RDF are
welcome at any time. Undesignated cash donations from the offering the first Sunday of each month will be
directed to the RDF. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Remember to wear your nametags each Sunday!
