Norcross Cooperative Ministry: Local Kids 
Need Our Help!

The current food pantry need 
this summer is for 
kid friendly foods and snacks. 

Many of the NCM clients are children who, during the school year, depend on school lunches, so in the summer there’s an increased need to help provide food for them. 

Suggested items include: 
 Sandwich crackers 
 Fruit cups 
 Non-perishable fruit snacks 
 Muffin pouches 
 Juice boxes 
 Peanut butter 
 Jelly (plastic jars) 
 Macaroni & cheese

Donations may be left in the NCM box near the handicap entrance of the church.  Monetary donations are always appreciated as well - please make checks out to Mt. Carmel, marked for NCM.  Thank you for helping our neighbors!

It's a Girl!

Congratulations to 
Lindsay & Kevin Braun, 
and happy grandparents, William & Gail Bolton 
on the birth of 
Aspen Grace Braun, 
born on Saturday, June 16. 
5 lbs, 5 oz. and 18 inches long.

We are so happy for them all!


Retirement Congratulations!

Congratulations to Dr. Boyd Whaley on his recent retirement from the North Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church.  

Boyd, along with other retirees, was recognized at Annual Conference in Athens on Wednesday.

But don't worry - he is NOT retiring from the North Georgia Family Counseling Center, so you'll still see him hanging out at Mt. Carmel and Birmingham UMC!  (And of course the Magnolia Bakery Cafe!)


You're Invited!

Carl & Joan Garner would like to invite the Mt. Carmel congregation to a celebration of their daughter Amanda’s upcoming marriage to her fiancée, Scott Gunter. 

Please plan to stop in to congratulate the happy couple and also enjoy lunch in the Fellowship Hall on Sunday, July 1 at 12:15 p.m.  
(No Gifts Please)
