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.

Enjoy a delicious dinner and amazing entertainment along with your church friends and neighbors. We ask for a $6 per person donation at the door to cover the cost of the meal.

    Our program this year will be a visit from the infamous Jezebel of Bible fame. You can read her story in 1 Kings 16:29-33; 18:1-4; 21:1-16; 2 Kings 9:30-37. Of all the bad girls of the Bible, Jezebel may very well be the “baddest”! We are honored to have Dee Brinson Collier from Ocala, Florida, return to bring Jezebel to life for us. Dee does amazing characterizations of many historical figures, including Cori ten Boom, Martha Washington and Sacajawea. So we are definitely in for a treat.

    Our Love offering will be going to Fugees Family, a ministry which helps child survivors of war rebuild their lives one step at a time, giving them the structure and support they need through soccer and academics.

    Sign-up sheets are in the Gathering Room and outside Hinton Hall. Please let us know you are joining us so our chefs are prepared. Our meal will include Watergate salad, pork loin with Jezebel sauce, sweet potatoes, green beans, homemade rolls, and a variety of trifles for dessert. (After all, Jezebel was trifling sort of gal!) This annual event is not to be missed. Please sign up TODAY! For additional information, please contact Terrie Adkins by e-mail at ttadkins@sprynet.com or call 770-476-7981.
