Combined Service & Pot Luck Lunch
on September 30 - 10:30 a.m.
This Sunday, September 30, the Stewardship Committee will Kick-Off the 2018 Stewardship Campaign!  

We will have a combined worship service beginning at 10:30 a.m., followed by a Pot Luck Lunch in the Fellowship Hall.

Please bring a dish or two to share and come enjoy lunch with your Mt. Carmel friends!


The Fall BBQ and Sweet Shop 
are just around the corner - Oct. 5 & 6! 

Lots of volunteers are needed to make these event happen, so please check the sign up boxes on the back of the Connect Card in your Sunday bulletins to see where you can help! 


Sweet Shop Note: If you plan to donate baked goodies for the Sweet Shop, PLEASE make sure to deliver them cut into individual servings, wrapped, and marked so that everyone knows what they are.  (Nuts, no nuts, pound cake, lemon cookies, etc.)

Flyers with dates and prices are available in the sanctuary and outside of the Fellowship Hall, so take a few and invite your family and friends too!  (Or contact the church office for an electronic version.)

There are new things in the air for our Mt Carmel kids! We will hold a meeting regarding Fall Festival and the Christmas Pageant on Sunday October 7 at 10:30. Details about the Children's Choir will also be presented. Please join us in the Double Classroom for coffee and donuts. 1. We will be initiating our new Children's Choir on Sunday, October 14th. Practices will take place in the Double Classroom from 10:30 to 11. 2. Fall Festival this year will include a church wide picnic due to the need to reschedule the September 23rd Berkeley Lake picnic. Children's Ministries is responsible for Trunk n Treat, Kid's games, and a bounce house. 3. This Christmas season, we are planning to have our Christmas pageant on December 16th during the 10:30 worship service prior to Down Home Holidays. It will be wonderful to have our pageant as part of Sunday Morning worship!


Children's Choir to Begin Soon!
Exciting news - a new joyful noise will soon be heard at Mt. Carmel! Children ages three and older are invited to join us for A Joyful Noise, a music and arts time.

Our first meeting will take place on Sunday, October 14 at the 10:30 am service (when the children are dismissed after "children's time"). We will gather in the Double Classroom to learn about sharing our musical gifts with others, make crafts, and even meet an occasional surprise guest! 

Our first worship service appearance will be during the 9:30 am and 11:00 am worship services on Sunday, November 18. 

If you have questions about A Joyful Noise, please contact Marianne at (770) 263-7125. We look forward to singing with you! 

Marianne Thompson, Phil Griffin and Lori Anderson

  Kid's Corner: Thank You!

The Children's Department would like to say a BIG Thank You to everyone who contributed to the Flood Buckets that they packed on Sunday for Hurricane Florence Relief!

We were able to pack 15 buckets, with several partial buckets to be completed soon.  And there were still some extra supplies that went into the NCM tub to help local families! Thank you all!

Are You a "Cat Person?"

Are you a cat person who needs a cat ... Or needs another cat?  If so, this nice fellow would really love to come to live with you!

He decided to visit us at Mt. Carmel a couple of weeks ago.  He has obviously been a pet, as he is very friendly!  One of our wonderful Preschool teachers, Ms. Beth, has taken him to Planned Pethood and had him neutered, gotten his shots and he's had a good check-up ... now he just needs a good home.

If you're interested, please contact the church office or the Mt. Carmel Preschool
