We look forward to having her with us this week!

(Pastor Cyndi is away this week, but will return on Monday.)


New Church Directory being Finalized
Is your picture included?
Our new church directory will be finalized and on it's way soon and we want to make sure that everyone is included!

If you have not had your photo taken yet, there are still two options for inclusion.  
  1. You may have your photo taken by the Life Touch photographers when they are set up at another church in our area.  To find the nearest church and make arrangements, please call 1-866-756-0281 and tell them that Mt. Carmel's account number is 240782. The deadline for having your photo taken for our directory is Saturday, October 15th.
  2. Or, you may submit a personal photograph online to the church office at office@mtcarmel-umc.org.  The deadline for this option is Sunday, October 16th.
Please try to use one of these options - we REALLY want you to be included!
