  •  On May 17, members of the Carrollton United Methodist Church are returning to where it all began in honor of the 225th anniversary of the congregation. In 1790, Methodists began meeting in the home of Richard and Sarah Masterson for worship. Little did they know that their gatherings would continue unbroken for more than two centuries. In celebration, the church’s May 17 Sunday service will be held outdoors at the Masterson House at 10:45 a.m.

  • I have never been good at roller skating (or anything that requires balance for that matter).  However, when I was a children’s pastor in another part of the state, I did take a group of church kids to the local roller rink.  One of the boys who went was named Will, and he skated like I remember skating.  He probably fell at least ten times and when he hit the ground, he hit hard.  In fact, he fell so hard that the tops of his shins, right below his knees, were completely bruised.
