Families & Fellowship

Support for families is an important ministry at Duluth First United Methodist Church.  Parenting classes with childcare provided offer help and support to families.  Activities for the family to do together are also a part of the church calendar.

A variety of events are offered for Christian fellowship for all ages – singles, couples and families.  Movie night, dinners, Trunk or Treat, and Christmas Caroling are just a few examples of the fellowship events at Duluth First United Methodist Church.

Vacation Bible School 2019 is June 17th – 21st:
Registration Is Underway!

Mark your calendars and save the date for “Roar! Life is Wild. God is Good.” The 2019 Vacation Bible School at Duluth First United Methodist Church is being held Monday, June 17th through Friday, June 21st. Registration is underway! Vacation Bible School, held from 9 a.m. to noon each day, is for kids going into pre-Kindergarten (age 4 as of September 1st) through rising 6th graders. The cost is $30 per child with a maximum of $70 per family. Each day participants will learn a new Bible verse as they go to Bible story time, sing songs, play games, make crafts, and eat yummy snacks.

In addition to registering participants, we are also registering adult and youth volunteers. We especially need shepherds. These are adult volunteers who are in charge of a group of 6-10 kids. Shepherds do not need to prepare anything in advance. They lead their group to the various activities where other volunteers are in charge. If you would like to help, but are only available one or two days that week, you can put your available dates on your registration. We often need substitute shepherds. Also, the nursery is available for the children of volunteers if you have a child who is not old enough to be a participant.

All Vacation Bible School participant registration forms, as well as volunteer forms for “Roar” Vacation Bible School, are available by clicking on VBS 2019 Online Registration.

This year Triumph Sports will be holding a sports camp immediately after VBS from noon to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday. For more information and to register for the sports camp, please go to www.TriumphSports.com/DuluthFUMC.
