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.

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.

Wesley seminary article:

The Rev. Dr. Mary Kay Totty, pastor of Dumbarton United Methodist Church in Washington, D.C., is passionate about using her artistic abilities to co-create with God. That’s what art symbolizes for her – a weaving of creativity and theology. And that is what ultimately led her to Wesley and its Doctor of Ministry in Arts and Theology degree program.

“Part of the way we are made in the image of God is to be creative,” Totty said. “In a society that calls us to be passive observers of life, there is something radical about creating something or engaging with people face to face.”
