Parent Life: Teens

Beginning on February 19th, Rev. Lynne Smith of the North Georgia Family Counseling Center will gather with parents of teens on the 3rd Sunday of each month (exceptions in April and June due to Easter and Father’s Day) from 5:30 - 7:00 pm in Room 112/114 at Mt. Carmel to think theologically about raising teens in the digital age. 

Our conversation will include a study of scripture, theological concepts, and the purpose of adolescence as we explore the challenges of parenting in the digital age. 

Registration is not required, but is helpful, so please send an
 e-mail to ngfccumc@gmail.com if you plan to attend."


Preschool to Participate in Consignment Sale

The Mt. Carmel Preschool has been given the opportunity to participate in a consignment sale in mid March. All proceeds will benefit our Preschool. Here's where they need our help!

Do you have any children's clothing, shoes, sports equipment, toys or household items that you no longer need?  Just bring them to Mt. Carmel and the Preschool will handle the rest!
(May be dropped off in the Preschool or church office.)

The deadline for gathering items is March 1st, so start clearing out those closets!  Thanks for all donations - receipts for tax purposes will be provided.
