The Worship Committee invites you to remember or honor a loved one by purchasing a lily on Easter. The cost per plant is $20. The lilies will be used during our worship services Easter morning, April 12th, whether we worship in person or online.
If we are not able to worship in person, they will be placed around the butterflies that will be used to decorate the church’s front lawn for Easter. You may pick up your lily/lilies from the front lawn, and any leftover plants will be taken to our homebound members.
All proceeds go to Seeds of Hope, whose funds are used to help meet the needs of God's people living in Duluth and Suwanee--often strangers, widows, orphans, homeless, those who are lost, and those who are without hope--who come to Duluth First United Methodist Church seeking assistance.
You can place your order for lilies online with a credit/debit card payment. Anyone wishing to pay by credit/debit card must complete your order form online. To place your online order, please click on Easter Lily Online Order Form.
If you wish to pay by check or cash, order forms are available for download by clicking on Easter Lily Order Form.
Please mail your form/forms, along with a check made payable to "Duluth First United Methodist Church" and marked "Easter Lilies" in the memo section, to Duluth First United Methodist Church, Attn. Ken Willi, P.O. Box 699, Duluth, GA 30096, or place them in the Staff Drop Box, which has been moved to the 1st floor of the Family Life Center, inside the double doors near the 1st floor offices.

Do friends often come to you to share their feelings and confide in you? Are you an encourager with a tender heart for helping people who are hurting or struggling? If you answered yes, you may be a great candidate to serve as a Stephen Minister.
Duluth First UMC is looking for men and women Stephen Minister candidates with a desire to serve God by providing confidential one-to-one Christian care and support to those in our church and community who are going through difficult times.
The role of the Stephen Minister is to journey alongside their care receiver for as long as needed, providing support, encouragement and prayers for him or her every step of the way. Stephen Ministers are not problem solvers; they focus on providing care and look to God to provide the healing.
The training for Stephen Ministers is excellent (50 hrs) and equips Stephen Ministers to provide emotional and spiritual care for people in the midst of a crisis or struggling with life challenges. The training for new Stephen Ministers will begin in October. Applications can be found in the Atrium or can be downloaded by clicking on 2019 Stephen Minister Application.
Completed applications are to be submitted to Rev. C. Kay Fuino or Ann Fleming by Sunday, September 22nd. For more information about Stephen Ministry, contact Rev. Fuino by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 770-472-3776, ext. 117, or call Ann Fleming at 678-644-9108.
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.
