On this Martin Luther King Jr Day, our witness remains: Black Lives Matter!


This new video, "Art and Music,"  shows Roger Gilkeson displaying and describing his own art works and works by others in his apartment. It was  recorded in 2021 by an Iranian videographer/producer/director.  Roger's piano background music was recorded at Dumbarton in 1986.


Dumbarton stands with our brothers and sisters at Asbury United Methodist Church, where a "Black Lives Matter" sign was removed by a racist group.

JOB DESCRIPTION: Director of Music Ministry Music is an important part of the life of the Dumbarton United Methodist Church community.

The Director of Music Ministry collaborates with clergy, staff, choir members, other musicians, and members of the congregation in order to provide this important ministry to the congregation and the community. DUMC is a progressive, small membership church located in Georgetown, Washington, DC. It has strong lay leadership and lots of musical and sound technology talent.

We appreciate good music, love to sing, and understand music leadership not as performance but as a very important part of worship. The person in this position needs to be flexible, organized and enjoy working as a team member. This is a part-time position (15 hours/week). The annual salary range is $18,000-$22,000, commensurate with experience.
