Fun Pasta Fundraiser


A new Fun Pasta fundraiser is live now! There are new fall items in this campaign plus many of the ones we sold before. This is an online fundraiser with the items being shipped directly to your home. They come within just a few days after you place your order. The church will earn 40% from each sale. You may order from any device using this URL: https://www.funpastafundraising.com/shop/carrollton-first-united-methodist-church_1627658084062.

There are paper brochures available at both locations, also, and Cindy (our wonderful secretary) will place your order online if you would rather have her do it. Our fundraiser will end on Oct. 10th. I can say from experience that the pasta is delicious and it makes good presents. I’ve been polling my grandchildren whom all received a bag last year for Christmas! Thank you for your help!

Summit Groups

Summit Groups are specially designed small groups developed around our UP, IN, and OUT discipleship culture. UP in our relationship with God while encouraging and supporting others in their walk with Christ. IN-to fellowship and support with one another. OUT missionally into the world by sharing Christ through our words and deeds. 

Summit groups are a small group of believers at all stages of their walk, that come together for the purpose of being transformed fuller into the image of Christ as we help one another through life and faith. One can expect to enter into a warm and hospitable environment where the Word of God is read and reflected upon for personal implications and applications, prayers are raised, support and compassion is shared, and hope, peace, and encouragement is found.

Groups will seek to meet 10 weeks each semester. There will be three semester per year. 

  • Semester 1: Week of Sept.12 – week of Nov.14 
  • Semester 2: Week of Jan. 9 – week of Mar. 13 
  • Semester 3: Week of April 24 – week of June 26 

Summit Groups are not only where faith and relationships are deepened, but where the church is grown through multiplication. We hope you will connect with us on for the journey ahead. Please sign-up on the sheets outside the worship space and one of our leaders will be in touch.

June and July will be at Wesley Community Church on 12th Street.

Grief Support Group

The Grief Support Group will be meeting the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month at Yellow Brick Church. The 1st Tuesday meeting will be at 10am; the 3rd Tuesday meeting will be at 6:30pm.

Please join with the understanding that grief does not just come from the passing of a loved one – grief can be an emotion we feel from the loss of a job, family pet, moving to a new location, change in life circumstances, etc. This group will assist us in our mutual healing.

*This group is open to everyone in the community; please share if you know of someone who may benefit from joining us. Social Distancing and Masks will be required

Africa University

Africa University is the first and only fully-accredited institution of higher learning established on the African continent by action of the General Conference of The United Methodist Church. It was founded in 1992 in Mutare, Zimbabwe, at the request of African Bishops who wanted a university for the whole of Africa to foster intellectual, moral, ethical, and spiritual growth in its students. Because of the lack of on-campus housing, many students walk very far every day in remote areas to come to Africa University. Female students become targets for human trafficking and prostitution.

Our East Ohio Bishop Tracy Malone has the vision of East Ohio churches building a women’s dorm to house 90 students which will provide a safe, secure environment and a community of support. Our church’s Discipleship Board in Jan. voted to participate in this project. In 2 years time, we hope to raise $20,000 to pay for 1 student room which will house 2 female students.  Any extra money will go to finish the room inside. Checks can be written out to our church with “AU” on the memo line.
