Baby Recognition Sunday at Duluth First UMC will be held on Sunday, May 7th. The United Methodist Women (UMW) will welcome and recognize all new babies born to our church family during the past year. If your family (immediate or extended) has welcomed a new addition between March 2016 and March 2017, please click on Baby Recognition 2017 Form, download the form, complete it and returning it to the church by April 30th. Please provide complete information so that invitations may be sent to the parents. All babies will be honored and welcomed at the 11:00 Traditional Worship service. A luncheon will follow for the babies and their families. A donation to missions may be made in honor of a specific baby or in honor of all new babies collectively.
This time of recognition is open to all our church family and parents do not have to be members of our congregation. Jesus said, “Let the little children come unto me..” We want to echo that invitation. The JAM (Jesus Among Mommies) Circle sponsors this special ceremony along with the entire UMW unit. All babies signed up will be honored, and a donation is not required. Please complete your form and put it in the Baby Box in the Gathering Room, in the Grand Hall or in the collection plate on Sunday mornings. The final day to submit names is Sunday, April 30th. Please contact Jennifer Taylor by e-mail at email@example.com for additional information.

Our Flower Guild will be arranging flowers for worship services in both the Sanctuary and Grand Hall. Seven teams of talented, eager-to-serve Flower Guild members will create beautiful arrangements each week. 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 $35 per vase or $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 the Grand Hall.

We are pleased to offer for sale CD recordings of the weekly scriptures and sermons for both the traditional and contemporary worship services. These are also available for free on the church website - www.duluthumc.org - under the RESOURCES tab.
However, 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.
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.
