Clue: Guess the sermon theme!
From the Amazing Race brochure:
Each week there will be clues to help you guess which story will be the theme for the upcoming Sunday. Clues will be found in the weekly bulletin, on the church website
www.carrolltonfirstumc.org, and on the CFUMC Facebook page. When you think you know the story, email Pastor Kimberly at firstname.lastname@example.org. (only e-mails will be accepted) The first team that guesses the story correctly will earn 1,000 points! Each additional team that guesses correctly will earn 500 points.
Please join us for our Maundy Thursday service at 7:00pm on April 6 at our Yellow Brick Location (253 S. Lisbon St. Carrollton.)
In lieu of a Good Friday service this year, we have decided to do a cross walk in downtown Carrollton. We will meet at the Yellow Brick location (253 S. Lisbon St. Carrollton) at noon on April 7. We will walk down to the bottom of the square, retrieve the cross, and carry it back to the church. As we walk, we will discuss what Jesus might have felt and saw as he made that journey so long ago. We will end at the Yellow Brick Church and conclude our time together with prayer and scripture reading. This will be an impactful gathering and we hope you will join us.
If you have Carrollton First UMC shirts or sweatshirts, please wear them! Be sure to dress for the weather as we will NOT be cancelling.
