Upcoming events & Announcements
new study: Discipleship Explored
At the beginning of the summer with the help of a prayer and discernment team, we identified an amazing study that we feel speaks to every believer and to us as a whole at Carrollton First UMC. The study is called Discipleship Explored based on Paul’s letter to the Philippians and focuses on finding a deep union with Christ through which we can find joy in suffering and strength in unity, the value of contentment, and much more. We felt it would be extremely beneficial and powerful to do this as a church wide study. We would love for each and everyone of you to join us.

Volunteers Needed for Children’s Message
Plant the seeds of Christian love in the hearts and minds of children with brief messages during our Children’s time. Help needed at both locations. Please do not feel that you have to create the message or prayer from scratch. Messages can be created on your own, from a book, provided with help from the pastors, etc.
Please contact the office if you feel led to help or would like more information.
