Worship Services at Duluth First United Methodist Church

Current COVID-19 Policy

We are now back to our base-level COVID policy:

Based on the latest guidelines from the CDC, Duluth First UMC’s COVID protocol applies to worship and all other church events and to all areas of the campus:

  • For those who have been fully vaccinated, masks are not required.
  • For those who have not been fully vaccinated, masks and social distancing are required.
  • The church will continue to make masks available for all.

Many thanks to everyone for working together so graciously to be the church during this pandemic--from the time we went to online only on March 15, 2020, through our re-opening with masks on June 28, 2020, and into this next phase going forward.


Your cooperation in loving your neighbor as yourself is helping us to help people follow Jesus.


Terry Tippens,

Senior Pastor

Our Worship Services & Authentic Worship

Church can be an intimidating place to visit — especially if you don’t know what to expect. Our Sunday morning worship services are the beginning for most people at Duluth First United Methodist Church. We invite you to experience what the gospel means both intellectually and relationally at one of our three Sunday worship services.


Our greeters will warmly welcome you and answer any questions about Duluth First United Methodist Church that you may have. Engage with others as much as you want, or remain anonymous if you prefer. We hope that through visiting with us, you will experience the hope, love and joy that comes from a community of people who love Jesus.


At Duluth First United Methodist Church we look for God’s love in our lives as the evidence that we have been truly worshiping Him. Authentic worship, central to everything, means learning to recognize God’s goodness while delighting to deepen in our responses.


It is our goal, as individuals and as a community, to unite our actions, intentions, and emotions in loving response to God. It means transforming the ways we think so that what we do and who we are become one—in, for, through, and to the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.
