Church News & Announcements

Here's a quick look at what's going on at First Methodist Carrollton!

Celebrating Riley Bowles' Ministry

This Sunday, between the 9:00 and 10:30 a.m. services

Sunday is Riley's last with us, so we're celebrating his time of ministry as our Children & Families Director between the services with cake in the Fellowship Hall. Give him a hug, say thanks, wish him luck on his seminary journey or just introduce yourself and say "I didn't know you were on staff!" 

Personally, I hope y'all do the last one and blame me so Riley texts me angrily about it later, but do whatever feels right.

Blessing of the Backpacks

August 7, both services

This week we have the privilege of praying over anyone and everyone related to the education field, from students to teachers, administrators and beyond. Recent events can make going places feel intimidating, but I'm so encouraged by this opportunity to pray for everyone involved in this vital industry. Students are encouraged to bring their backpacks to service.

I'm inviting you to take a tag if you know someone (or you are that someone) who needs to be reminded that they are covered in prayer going into the school year.

Back to School Brunch

August 7th, from 8:30 – 11:00 a.m.

That same Sunday, we'll have pancakes and bacon available to anyone in our community who wants it! This is a great, low-commitment way to invite a friend to church and a way we are intentionally doing what we can to show we care for our local community.

Thanks to the Boy Scouts for partnering with us to make it happen!

Pool Party!

This Saturday at Rosemeade Rainforest!

Come hang out with us on Saturday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. even if you don’t want to swim or slide! Bring a picnic dinner and join the fun! This is a great chance to connect with church members and guests who joined us for VBS and Explorers.
(Note: glass containers are not allowed.)

In Other News...

VBS is happening on campus this week and it's really awesome to see such a diverse group of people come together and build relationships! Also, thanks to Guy Terry for taking this photo and passing it along!

If you'd like to be a part of creative storytelling here at FMC, let me know! I'd love to dream with you about how we can tell God's story and God-Stories happening in the lives of our church.
