TRAFFIC UPDATE: Access to our main drive from the westbound lane of University Avenue has been cut off due to road construction, and will likely stay that way through early summer. We recommend approaching from the west (Middleton direction). We also have a gate that allows access to our parking lot from Countryside Lane, off of Old Middleton Road. Please drive slowly on Countryside Lane to respect our neighbors. If you are approaching from the east (downtown direction), you can't turn left until Maple Street.

This event is free and open to the public; goodwill offerings will all go directly to Voces de la Frontera.

My Immigrant Story...: "You shall love the stranger living among you, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt." (Leviticus 19) Our Scriptures and our God call us to treat immigrants with kindness and respect - remembering that we or our ancestors were once immigrants seeking a new home. To help us understand the lives, needs, and fears of our immigrant neighbors, members of St. Dunstan’s will be sharing their own “how I got here” stories in the weeks ahead, during our Announcement time. This Sunday we’ll hear from long-time members Peter and Nana. If you have a story to share, talk to Rev. Miranda.
