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.


Pull Ups for a Party: May 23rd

Due to the rainy weather, the location has been changed for today's Pull Ups for a Party event for kids ages preschool through 5th grade and their parents! The new location is the Youth Center ("The Fish Tank"), located on the first floor of the Family Life Center. Join us from 5 to 6:30 p.m. for indoor games, pizza, and a visit from Toofpik the Clown!

Worship Service Schedule Change:

Begins 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.

    Hands of Christ Food and Supply Drive Contest: Through the Month of May

    Are you ready for some fun with food offerings for Hands of Christ Cooperative Ministry? Hands of Christ, a local missions ministry supported by Duluth First UMC, is a non-profit, faith- based ministry dedicated to providing emergency assistance to residents of Duluth, Georgia, by utilizing the resources of local churches, businesses and the community in order to provide effective ministry to our neighbors in need. They have some critical needs right now and you can help by stepping up as a group and winning an AWESOME award from the Missions Committee.

    We have assigned your group(s) an item that is needed. Your task is to see which group can create the biggest WOW with what you gather for the Hands of Christ during May. You are on your honor to track your donations in your group and at the end of May send a note to Rev. C. Kay Fuino by e-mail at ckfuino@duluthumc.org with the total of what you collected and donated.

    Place your donations in the bins marked for Hands of Christ at the back door to the Family Life Center, the Narthex inside the front doors, or the bins in the Fellowship Hall kitchen.

  • Youth – Boxed cereal – you eat this often so share your favorites.
  • Choir – Jelly – because you are so sweet and want to share your joy.
  • Children’s Sunday school classes – Canned fruit
  • UMW Circles – Tea, you loved it last month, share the joy this month.
  • 9:30 Adult Sunday School Classes – Coffee (drip or instant) – so you can help the families wake up bright and cheery like you.
  • 11:00 Adult Sunday School Classes – Rice- remember rice is a staple, just like y’all.
  • Church staff – Toilet paper – a much needed supply to finish the job.
  • If you aren’t a part of one of these groups then pick one to support, bring your donations and let me know how you supported the Food Drive.

    Blessings and joy for the fun!
