DUMC Thanksgiving breakfastFellowship in a Caring Community

Join us for the many social events we have over the year to make new friends and catch up with old ones. Often the gatherings are to support worthy causes, as well as to mix with people.There are send-off parties, informal celebrations of births and weddings. and fund-raisers for Latin-American causes. 

Dumbarton has a tradition for many decades of having breakfast in Turkey Run Park on Thanksgiving morning. People come to share in pot luck fashion with friends who feel like family.

There are gatherings called Discovery Groups organized geographically that meet monthly in homes for fellowship and food.  In addition there are groups organized by interests, such as families of young children, and single young adults.  Groups sometimes form spontaneously, such as one bringing together women interested in fabric arts.
