As always, church members and friends are invited to purchase flowers in memory or in honor of a loved one, or to mark a special event, such as a birthday, anniversary, etc.
The cost for each arrangement is $100 for three vases (2 vases in the Sanctuary/1 vase in the Grand Hall. Flower designations will be listed in the church bulletin for the Sanctuary services, and displayed on the screens for worship in Hinton Hall.

Are you an encourager with a tender heart for helping people who are hurting or struggling with life’s challenges? Do friends and family often come to you when they need a listening ear, support and prayers? If you answered yes, perhaps God is calling you to serve as a Stephen Minister. Stephen Ministry at Duluth First UMC is looking for men and women with a desire to serve God by providing confidential one-to-one Christian care and support to people who are going through a crisis or a difficult time. No prior experience is needed. A training class will begin in October.
If you’re interested in learning about the role of a Stephen Minister, the training, time commitment and more, we encourage you to attend one of these Information Meetings: Wednesday, August 22nd, at 6 p.m. in room F-145 in the Family Life Center, or Sunday, August 26th, at 12:15 p.m. in the Chapel.
This is an opportunity to explore Stephen Ministry and to help you discern if this is where God is leading you. Completed applications (click on Stephen Minister Application to download a copy of the application) should be submitted to Rev. C. Kay Fuino by September 9th. For more information, please contact Cindy Bennett by e-mail at email@example.com.
We are pleased to offer for sale CD recordings of the weekly scriptures and sermons for both the traditional and contemporary worship services. There are also free mp3 audio files of each week's sermons available by clicking on SERMONS.
CD recordings are $5 each. Proceeds go towards the Homebound CD Ministry, which provides recordings of the scriptures and sermons to our church’s homebound members.
We cannot offer CD recordings or web broadcasts which include the music, as some of the hymns and many of the anthems are currently under copyright. Only by seeking separate permission for each song currently under copyright could we attempt to offer these musical recordings. And failure to comply with the copyright law could result in a fine of at least $250,000 per offense.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you, and thank you for understanding as we attempt to be good citizens and good stewards.
