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.

Red is energizing, excites our emotions and motivates to action.

Red signifies determination.

Red is a strong color that gives confidence.

Red is noticeable and radiates.

Red means love and red means stop!

BE BOLD IN RED!
