Most people would call the information on this page ministries and that is correct, but we could also call them “reaching out”. Most churches do reach out to their communities and to the world, and we are no different. It’s what we believe, it’s what is in our hearts, it’s our calling – it’s Following Jesus…Sharing His Love. Church updates on Facebook Carrollton First UMC.
Wild Wednesday is where we’re “Wild about Jesus”. Anyone is invited to come during the fall and winter for supper, singing, Bible stories, games, crafts, and fun! We meet from 6:00-7:30pm. Classes begin at age 4, and continue through 8th grade. Youth in grades 6 through high school are also invited to the Church Youth Group 6-7:30pm at The Bridge or BASIC Youth Group on Wednesdays from 6-8pm at the One Way Youth Center. For parents who attend, there is a nursery available for your little ones. Wild Wednesday is from September through March!
Wild Wednesday is all about Jesus and developing friendships with others in our community. We start in September and continue until springtime.
One Way Youth & BASIC Youth
The Youth Ministry at Carrollton First is all about forming committed relationships. Our primary focus is to look at how God would want us to handle relationships. This includes every relationship that we face in our daily lives, from family and friends to God and the church. Secondly, we hope to broaden the youths horizons, on what is out there in the world. We do this by providing several local mission trips, as well as having videos from all over the world to add to each lesson. These focuses are encouraged by purposeful fellowship and teaching/discussion that is relative to teenagers while simultaneously being filled with God, the Bible, and Christian fellowship.
BASIC (Becoming A Soldier In Christ) Youth Group for Youth in grades 7-12 is an extension of the One Way after school program. The group meets Wednesdays from 6-7:30 p.m. at the center. Questions? Contact Olivia Coil at 330-627-7751

Keep In Touch
There are people in our church family who have been coming to this church for a great many years. But suddenly, they may have stopped coming and we are left wondering what happened to them. As we age or perhaps our health becomes less than what it was, it can be difficult to get out and do the things we used to. And that includes coming to church on Sundays.
So why not bring the church to them – or at least some of it? The idea is to ‘keep in touch’ in ways that work best for those who can’t be with us on Sunday mornings. A ‘visit’ some days may consist of a card or phone call. On other occasions, a special delivery from our church family will be made.
Keep In Touch is a team of people who go and regularly visit those who cannot get out. It’s about keeping these people connected with their church family, and letting them know we care.
