Our Reaction to General Conference

Regardless of the damage done by the United Methodist General Conference in February, Dumbarton United Methodist Church will stick to its core values. We will continue to practice full inclusion. We will continue to offer our building and our clergy for same gender weddings. We will not obey unjust rules.

Dumbarton has been at the forefront of support for LGBQTIA+  people. We were one of the first United Methodist churches in Washington to join the reconciling movement and the first to conduct same-gender weddings. We are not about to stop now. LGBTQIA+ people are beloved children of God, created in God’s image, and wholly worthy of affirmation, ordination, and marriage in the United Methodist Church.
