Global 6K Walk for Water: 
May 19 - 8:00 a.m.

The Transformers Sunday School Class is partnering with World Vision on their 6K Walk for Water being held May 19th.  We'll meet at the church at 8:00 a.m. 

Why 6K you may ask. Well, that is the average distance a person has to walk in a developing country to get water! And that water is often contaminated. Hard to believe, for something that we take for granted. 

Here's the good news. You and I can help through World Vision's Clean Water Walk. Go online to: “Global 6K for Water” to sign up or donate, or stop by the information table in the church foyer on Sunday. 

Also, painted and donated by our gifted Tara Campbell, the beautiful painting above, entitled “Baptism in the Chattahoochee”, will be offered by Silent Auction to raise money for the Walk. The painting can be seen at the information table in the foyer on Sunday, or in the church office during the week. 

The Silent Auction bidding starts at $100 with bidding increments of $20. You can bid on the painting in the foyer on Sunday, or by contacting Suzanne at the church office and letting her know what you would like to bid. (770-449-4498) 

Bids will be accepted until the end of the Walk on Saturday, May 19th (at approximately 10:00 AM). The winner will be the highest bidder once the walk is over and ALL proceeds will go to World Vision. 

We have set a goal of raising $2500 dollars. You can help make this happen! Please see the display in the foyer or contact Sam Tapley for more information on the Walk or the Auction. 
770-833-0091.

THANK YOU TARA and Mt. Carmel for your support! 


Memorial Day Flowers

 

On Sunday, May 27 we will have an  arrangement in memory of those who have died in service to our country.

 

Their names will be listed in the bulletin, so please turn in names to be included to the church office, or list them on the back of the Connect Card in your Sunday bulletin. 


(Note that ALL veterans will be honored on Veteran’s Day Sunday, November 11) 


Scout Congratulations!

We're so proud of 
Maximilian Proels and Riley Stark 
for their recent scout awards!


Riley has earned the Girl Scout Gold Award for her project, "What Does It Mean to Thank a Veteran."
 (Pictured here speaking to the Mt. Carmel UMW Night Circle.)


And Max has earned the Boy Scout Eagle Award, part of which included his refurbishing all of the instrument lockers for a local middle school and constructing a new podium for the Band Director.

These are the highest awards earned in Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts and both involve many hours of work to complete. Please be sure to congratulate them when you see them next!


A Housekeeping Note ...

Here at the end of the school year, with summer just around the corner, many ceremonies, receptions and other events are planned in our Fellowship Hall and right now, that space needs some serious attention!

If you have had an event and left any items in the Fellowship Hall or Kitchen lately, PLEASE collect them ASAP!  At some point soon, whatever is left will be discarded.

Thank you for helping to keep Mt. Carmel looking great!
