Dumbarton UMC has several Discovery Groups that 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 Dumbarton’s office for the coordinator of the group in your area.
You see the people in church and talk to them at coffee hour, but do you really know them? The best way to become more acquainted with the Dumbarton community is through Discovery Groups, which normally meet once a month.
Group events vary, but they often start off with a potluck dinner, followed by a discussion. They’ll be at member homes or, in the summer, occasionally at a swimming pool. Expect members to share personal experiences during the month and to bring up faith issues. Often a prayer or a reading is part of the program. They generally meet on weekend evenings.
