What's Happening

Over the years, there have been many rifts and divisions over important issues such as Revolution, Slavery, War, who could administer the Sacraments, Race Relations, and Women's rights to be ministers. And now the issue of equal treatment of all God's children. All have been debated at this very pulpit from various sides of the issue.

It’s been a while since our whole family went to church. All of us, but especially Ruby and Sam, were greeted with such love today. It reminded me of something Sam said about Dumbarton United Methodist Church when he found out there was a Pokémon stop at the church. I said, “Wow, that must be your favorite thing about the church.” He said, “No, my favorite thing is how loving the people are. The second is the Pokémon stop.” Hope you all experience a community that reflects God’s deep love for you just as you are.--Jennifer Coulter Stapleton
