Sassabration! Carson City UMC joins pride celebration


On September 17, Carson City First United Methodist Church participated in Sassabration, the annual Pride event held in Carson City, Nevada. 

Though the forecast was for skies hazy with wildfire smoke, volunteers staffed the Carson City First UMC booth all day, passing out bottled water, fans, Hershey Kisses and Hugs, all while sharing the good news that God's love is for all and all are welcomed, loved, and celebrated at Carson City First UMC. 

Pastor Kevin was one of four speakers to open the festivities with a brief witness and prayer and was also interviewed by our local radio station.  

This was Carson City First UMC's first time to participate in the event, and our church volunteers were humbled and blessed by the responses of folks who passed by to talk. 

We are so excited to move forward in being a part of the diverse community in our growing town.
