All Saints' Day
All Saints' Day, on Nov. 1, is observed in worship on the Sunday before or after. This is a time of remembering loved ones who have died during the year. Worship will include a ritual of remembrance and the lighting of candles.
Every year Dumbarton marks the anniversary of becoming a Reconciling Congregation with a special worship service on the last Sunday before Lent. This time of celebration weaves together our commitment to full inclusion of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered persons with the fun of Mardi Gras. On this Sunday, a pancake brunch follows.
Inter-America Sunday is typically held on the Sunday closest to the anniversary of the assassination of Archbishop Oscar Romero. We remember the struggle for justice and freedom in Central and South America. We celebrate the international connections that our congregation has with Nicaragua, Honduras, Uruguay and other Central and South American countries. Many of these relationships have their roots in the congregation's commitment to the Sanctuary Movement, when we provided shelter for America Sosa and other refugees.
Middle East Peace Sunday
Dumbarton longs for, prays for, and works for peace in the Middle East -- particularly for Palestine and Israel. A Sunday dedicated to this ministry is observed the week following Easter. Our "Holyland Pilgrims" committee works tirelessly throughout the year advocating for peace and justice for all persons in Palestine/Israel.
A Reconciling Congregation
Sunday worship is held at 11 a.m. in the sanctuary.
Youth and intermediate grades Sunday school are held at 10 a.m.
Godly Play and Children's Fellowship take place during much of the service.
