Worship Service Schedule Change: Begins May 27th

Beginning Sunday, May 27th

Beginning Sunday, May 27th, we will have a new schedule for our worship services. We will be combining our two Traditional Worship services into one service at 11:00 a.m., continuing our Contemporary Worship service at 9:30 a.m. in Hinton Hall, and adding an abbreviated Traditional Worship service at 8:30 a.m.

The schedule will be as follows:

  • 8:30 a.m.—abbreviated 45-minute Traditional Worship service in the Sanctuary.
  • 9:30 a.m.—Contemporary Worship service in Hinton Hall.
  • 11:00 a.m.—full Traditional Worship service in the Sanctuary.
  • The purpose of this change is to make our worship services more inviting, and to deploy our staff more effectively at Traditional as well as Contemporary Worship. If you have any questions, please contact Rev. Terry Tippens, Senior Pastor, or another member of our church staff.

  • Our contemporary worship is a place for an organic and personal experience with music and scripture for all ages. The service includes music, prayer, scripture, preaching and monthly communion. You’ll hear songs you know from contemporary Christian artists from our praise band. We use videos and graphics to enhance the worship space in Hinton Hall, part of the Family Life Center.

    Our goal is not to perform but to enrich your worship by your participation. The children’s and youth choirs perform on a regular basis and our youth are often included in the service. All are welcome and we have a special time and place called Kids Corner to include children in our worship time to make it a full family experience.

    Come as you are, join us for a cup of coffee and receive a warm welcome and a smile.

    Children, newborn through two years of age, are eligible for group care in the Duluth First United Methodist Church nursery during the 9:30 & 11:00 a.m. worship services.
