Worship

Join Us. Celebrate!

The heart of our community is our Sunday morning worship. We gather together to sing and pray, to listen and share, to be inspired and challenged. All are welcome Dumbarton worship servicehere – young, old and inbetween; gay, straight and inbetween; male, female, and inbetween; believers, doubters, and inbetween; optimistic, pessimistic and in between; black, white and in between; hopeful, despairing, and inbetween; first time, life-long, inbetween – everyone! 
 

Sunday morning worship at Dumbarton is enriching, thought-provoking, challenging, and welcoming. Come as you are! During the school year, worship begins at 11 a.m. During the summer (from Memorial Day through Labor Day) worship is starts 10 a.m. Worship services usually run one and a quarter to one and a half hours. Refreshments follow in the Social Hall. 

Children.  A nursery is provided during worship for infants and children through age 3. During the school year, children aged 3-8 are invited to participate in “Godly Play” following the children’s message in the worship service. Children of all ages are welcome to remain with family during worship.
