Welcome to Carrollton First UMC

1 Church, 2 LocationsHello and welcome to the First United Methodist Church here in Carrollton, Ohio. You’re probably wondering what we mean by our slogan “Following Jesus…Sharing His Love”. Well, we’re a group of ordinary and imperfect people who agree that this is the simplest way to describe what a Christian ought to do. It’s not always easy and none of us get it right all the time, but it’s a journey we choose to take. And there’s a place waiting for you right here, so come and take this life-long journey with us.

Scripture Lesson: Luke 1:67-79

Zechariah’s Song

67 His father Zechariah was filled with the Holy Spirit and prophesied:

68 “Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel,
because he has come to his people and redeemed them.
69 He has raised up a horn[a] of salvation for us
in the house of his servant David
70 (as he said through his holy prophets of long ago),
71 salvation from our enemies
and from the hand of all who hate us—
72 to show mercy to our ancestors
and to remember his holy covenant,
73     the oath he swore to our father Abraham:
74 to rescue us from the hand of our enemies,
and to enable us to serve him without fear
75     in holiness and righteousness before him all our days.

76 And you, my child, will be called a prophet of the Most High;
for you will go on before the Lord to prepare the way for him,
77 to give his people the knowledge of salvation
through the forgiveness of their sins,
78 because of the tender mercy of our God,
by which the rising sun will come to us from heaven
79 to shine on those living in darkness
and in the shadow of death,
to guide our feet into the path of peace.”
