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.

UPCOMING FELLOWSHIP EVENTS

The Roadrunners to Visit the Anne Frank in the World Exhibit: January 15th

The Roadrunners will visit the Anne Frank in the World exhibit in Sandy Springs on Tuesday, January 15th. The exhibit uses 600 photographs with more than 8,000 words to tell the story of Anne Frank, a young Jewish girl who kept a diary while she hid with her family from the Nazis in Amsterdam. Anne grew up in Europe amidst the events that culminated in World War II and the Holocaust. The powerful, moving exhibit provides visitors a chance to learn, explore, share and remember the history and lessons of the Holocaust and its continued relevance today.

The Roadrunners will leave the church’s front parking lot at 9:30 a.m. and return to the church by 4 p.m. The cost of the trip is $5 per person. The self-guided tour takes about 1.5 hours. Following the tour, lunch on your own will be at the Egg Harbor Restaurant located in the same area as the exhibit. Please make your reservation for this trip at the Senior Fellowship gathering on Tuesday, January 8th.
