Where Can I Serve?

Our United Methodist Mission is to “make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.”  Church members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as greeting guests and members on Sunday Mornings to answering the phone in the office during the week. 

Mission Outreach

Carrollton First United Methodist Church recognizes the call of Christ to “go into all the world” (Matthew 28:19 for ministry. We agree with John Wesley that the “world is our parish.” We are actively involved in many missions that teach, preach, heal, train, house, and feed people. Our involvement helps to enable those in need to help themselves with dignity.


God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in the choir. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of our church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.

Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of this church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. We maintain an active Facebook feed for additional church communication. You can find us @carrolltonFirstUMC.

Prayer Partners

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. Our Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s grace and love. Throughout the week, volunteers from our Prayer Warriors team pray for their pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. 
“Special Operations”
There are various events throughout the year that require all hands on deck for a short period of time, regardless of your primary area of service (ie., Trunk or Treat, Easter Egg Hunt, 4th of July Singers, Hanging of the Greens, Rise Against Hunger). Watch for announcements during the year!
Weddings at Carrollton First UMC are worship experiences in which God blesses the union of husband and wife. Every element  of a wedding here is respectful of the sacred concept and because of this there are established guidelines. The beautiful sanctuary established in 1904 can accommodate 500 and is available for members as as non-members. Those interested in further information should contact one of the Wedding Coordinators: Melissa Shadrix (404-219-6967) or Ann Fletcher (770-328-9467).
