From the Pastor’s Desk

Virtual tours are a thing of beauty. We get the incredible opportunity to share about First United Methodist Church. And you, without any sales pitch from us, are able to see for yourself what our church has to offer! And…you can do that from the comfort of your own home, office, or laptop at the local cafe! So, thanks for the privilege to introduce you to the people and to the ministry of First United Methodist Church of Carrollton, Ohio.

First United Methodist Church is made up of a group of ordinary people who are headed in a common direction. We are a diverse group, with varying levels of education and from many walks of life. What we have in common is the direction that we are all headed. We like to tell folks we are “Following Jesus…Sharing His Love.” In order to do just that, we make use of a directional process to assist each of us individually, and all of us together, in our common goal.

The steps are:

COME to Christ in worship! We worship at 3 different times on Sunday mornings. Our 8:15 worship service is a blend of contemporary and traditional styles, leaning a bit toward the contemporary. Our 10:00 worship service at the Bridge, our satellite campus located at the Carroll County Fairgrounds, is casual and contemporary. And our 10:45 worship service is a blend of styles that leans toward the traditional. Come and see for yourself!

CONNECT with other Believers in fellowship. We have a variety of small group experiences available.

GROW in spiritual maturity through discipleship. Believing that persons grow in faith at varying levels, we are in the process of developing an intentional “discipleship pathway” to assist individuals at any and all levels to grow in the Christian faith and life.

SERVE others through ministry. Right now, we just want to serve you. If you discover that there are ways you would like to serve, we will be glad to help with that…down the road.

GO reach others with the message of Jesus’ Love. This website is just one way we encourage just that!

There are so many other things I could share with you, but I’ll resist that for now. I just want you to know that we will be ready when you get here, because we are expecting you! Hope to see you soon!

God Bless!

Rev. Dan Loomis, Senior Pastor
