Dumbarton United Methodist Church in Washington D.C.

November 13, 2022 Second Sunday Celebration

Second Sunday Celebration

Intergenerational Activity in person only
November 13th at 10 a.m.

—an all ages Sunday school and fellowship hour-

Each month includes refreshments and activities on a theme for many ages to share together. The hour begins with a brief Introduction to the theme of the day, maybe a 3-minute video, or listening to a poem,  or reading a story or scripture. Then participants move as they wish between three or four activity stations set up around the room.  Here are some examples of what might happen at a Second Sunday Celebration:

* make and share a beaded friendship bracelet
* have a cup of coffee or juice
* discuss the day’s theme with someone at  your table
* help a child with an activity
* fill a toiletry kit for distribution to new immigrants bused into DC
* munch on a muffin or a piece of fruit
* write names on paper leaves and hang on a prayer tree
* be surprised
* glue fabric pieces on a welcome banner
* feel welcomed
* contemplate on the day’s theme while coloring pictures of stained glass windows
* write note cards to friends
* enjoy warm fellowship
* decorate & fill gift bags or bake muffins to give to unhoused neighbors at our upcoming Pop-up Breakfast Cafe

All ages–small children, teens, adults, & seniors–share mindful tasks together to build community, find enrichment, and enjoy each other.
