Give Up Plastic for Lent? Why — And How?
March 13 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC+0Free
Does giving up plastic just mean trying to avoid single-use plastics? Does it mean substituting glass containers and paper products? Okay, how can we do those things, and can we even think about living life without single-use plastics? At this Sunday’s 10:00 a.m. Adult Education session, we will start with an uncomfortable look at why plastic pollution is such a growing problem. We’ll hear the good news about a UN resolution to develop a legally binding treaty by 2025. Then in break-out groups — in Zoom and in person — we’ll discuss what we can do individually and together. Join us at ten in person or by Zoom by dialing 301-715-8592 and punching in Meeting ID: 823 2708 4830 and Passcode: 801277.
Dumbarton United Methodist Church, also the home of the Dumbarton Concert Series, offers its Adult Ed program to anyone interested on Sunday mornings except in August. Many of its sessions are devoted to current issues, local and national history, and new research of likely interest to those beyond its church-going community. A variety of topics and presenters keep the program interesting. Each session includes time for a generally lively discussion.
Located in Georgetown at 3133 Dumbarton Street NW, Dumbarton is an inclusive faith community that seeks, serves, and celebrates. Its congregation voted to welcome LGBTQ people and their families in 1987, and we have been celebrating their gifts and commitment to our community ever since. It is also committed to becoming a more anti-racist church. We are biblical Christians, but believe Jesus’s most important commandment is to love all our neighbors – to welcome the hurting, the doubting, the lost, and the intellectually curious, believers and non-believers alike. You are not alone. In God’s neighborhood, we all can belong. If you think Dumbarton might be a good spiritual home for you, come as you are! You can also join us at 11:00 a.m. on Zoom, where our in-person worship will be broadcast simultaneously, by dialing 301 715 8592. The Meeting ID is 898 3876 7270; the Passcode: 312148.
