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.

    "Blessing of the Animals" Service: October 7th

    Sunday, October 7th; 3 pm, Fellowship Terrace

    Bring your pets to the annual Blessing of the Animals service on Sunday, October 7th. This service will be held at 3:00 p.m. on the Fellowship Terrace, located in front of the Fellowship Hall. In case of rain the service will be held under the back portico entrance of the Family Life Center.

    Blessing of the Animals witnesses to God’s and the Church’s love, care and concern for creation. St. Francis of Assisi, the author of the hymn All Creatures of Our God and King was an important person in reminding us of honoring all of God’s creation. October 4th is the Feast Day of St. Francis and Blessing of the Animals is often celebrated on the Sunday nearest that day.
