Reposted from Mary Kay Totty's blog,

Terence Crutcher. Keith Lamont Scott. Two more beloved dark-skinned children of God killed in the streets of US cities by law enforcement. Two more families devastated as they mourn loved ones dead too early, and dead unnecessarily. As I write this post, 706 people have been shot and killed by police in the United States in 2016 — and there’s three and a half months left in this year. That is more than two people per day! The Washington Post is keeping a count here. 

This cannot be ignored. We are being destroyed by racism and we must repent of the sin of racism and make bold efforts to dismantle racism.

Children at Dumbarton

Our dynamic children's program provides worship, education and special fun events for all ages. We have a full-time children's director who teaches the youth and leads special events such as a Halloween party, Christmas party and Vacation Bible School. On Sunday, we have friendly children's education classes before worship and a Godly Play program for younger children during worship.

Meet new people at Dumbarton’s Young Adult Group, which combines faith journeys with social activities.  You might find them at a book study session, a restaurant outing, a gathering at someone’s home or at Busboys and Poets. You’ll see them at the worship service, often seated in the right-hand back rows.
