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.


Young Adult Gatherings:  Sunday Afternoons

Have you graduated high school/college and are 18 to early 30’s and trying to figure things out? Do you know someone who is 18 to early 30’s and is trying to figure things out? If you answered “YES” to either of these questions, we want to get to know you!

Join us on Sunday afternoons at 3:30 p.m. at Break Roasters on the Duluth Town Green (3122 Hill Street NW) for some get acquainted time. Come get some coffee and meet other young adults trying to figure life out just like you are. Invite your friends to join us. If you have any questions, please contact Rev. David Burchett by e-mail at dburchett@duluthumc.org, or call 770-476-3776, ext. 124.

“Stellar” Vacation Bible School is June 12th – 16th:

Online Registration is Underway!
Mark your calendars and save the date for “Stellar – Shine Jesus’ Light.” The 2023 Vacation Bible School at Duluth First United Methodist Church is being held Monday, June 12th, through Friday, June 16th. Vacation Bible School, held from 9 a.m. to noon each day, is for kids going into pre-Kindergarten (age four as of September 1st) through rising 6th graders. Registration is FREE this year. Each day participants will learn a new Bible verse as they go to Bible story time, sing songs, play games, make crafts, and eat yummy snacks.

In addition to registering participants, we are also registering adult and youth volunteers. We especially need shepherds. These are adult volunteers who are in charge of a group of 6-10 kids. Shepherds do not need to prepare anything in advance. They lead their group to the various activities where other volunteers are in charge. If you would like to help, but are only available one or two days that week, you can put your available dates on your registration form. We often need substitute shepherds. Also, the nursery is available for the children of volunteers if you have a child who is not old enough to be a participant.

All Vacation Bible School participant online registration forms, as well as volunteer forms for “Stellar” Vacation Bible School, are available by clicking on STELLAR VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL.

Everyone who registers by May 21st is guaranteed a VBS t-shirt and a copy of the music.
