Dumbarton offers many ways to serve the congregation, the community, and the wider world. You can learn more about our work outside the church by browsing the Ministries sections in our main menu at the top of the page.
The church also welcomes the involvement of its lay congregants in planning and leading worship services. If you would like to be the liturgist or a reader, lead the “A Time for All Ages” moment, offer special music, be part of the guitar team, or be on a planning team for worship, please let the church office know by filling up the contact form here.


Connect With a Group

Several Discovery Groups meet monthly in different areas of the DMV and online. Their activities vary, but often start with a potluck dinner, followed by a discussion. Expect members to share personal experiences during the month and bring up faith or life challenge issues. A prayer or reading is often part of the program. Discovery Groups meet in: Northwest D.C./Bethesda; Arlington/Alexandria; Northern Virginia West; and Silver Spring/Prince George’s County/Northeast D.C. We also have a Discovery Group for Families with Children and our Online Discovery Group is made up of folks from across the country. Contact the church office for the coordinator of the group in your area.
