Homecoming / Heritage Sunday
August 20 - Combined Service

Mark your calendar for Homecoming/Heritage Sunday on August 20 at 10:30 am. 

We’ll journey back in time as we listen to “Voices From The Past” and meet church members from the 1800's to the 20th century sharing tales about Mt. Carmel’s history. 

After the service, everyone is invited to our traditional “covered dish” lunch in the Fellowship Hall.

Please bring a dish or two to share, and we’ll continue the day of celebration of Mt. Carmel!


Norcross Cooperative Ministry Needs

Currently the NCM is in special need of boxed cereal, spaghetti sauce, and jelly (plactic jars please).

Donations may be dropped off at Mt. Carmel, in the NCM tub near the handicap entrance.  Thank you!

Kid's Corner

There will be a single service on Homecoming Sunday, August 20th, so no Sunday School. Younger children (Pre-K through 1st grade) are invited to come downstairs after the Children's Sermon, older kiddos are asked to stay in church for the Homecoming service. 

Regular Sunday School will resume on Sunday, August 27th.

Sunday School Teachers and
Nursery Volunteers Still Needed

We are still in need of a couple of Sunday School Teachers for the fall, winter, and spring terms! 

We need a commitment of one class a month with the 3rd to 5th grade Sunday school class. 

We also have the following Nursery Volunteer positions open:

Infant Nursery: 9:30 - 1st Sunday of EVEN months
3-5 Yr Olds: 10:45 - 2nd Sundays

Our children are such a special part of our church - please consider filling one of these spots and let them know how important they are to us!

Please email or call Leslie if you can help.  Thank you!
