The Dumbarton All-Church Retreat will be held June 1-3, at West River Retreat Center near Deale, Md. Relax in a beautiful setting and enjoy the company of Dumbartonians. There's usually a campfire on Friday night, and there are Saturday morning programs for adults, children and youth and a delightful "Variety Show" on Saturday night!

Dumbarton UMC has been awarded a grant from DC's Dept. of Energy and Environment's RiverSmart Communities Program, an initiative administered by the Anacostia Watershed Society (AWS) that focuses on effective stormwater treatment and emphasizes community engagement and outreach which enriches the installation of stormwater projects.

This grant will allow Dumbarton, with guidance from AWS, to make church property improvements that that will reduce pollution to local waterways, reduce stormwater fees, and educate the public about water pollution.
