Please sign-up on the back of the Connect Card in your Sunday bulletin, or contact June Spruell if you would like to join us.


Current NCM Food 
Pantry Needs

Norcross Cooperative Ministry needs our help. They are currently in need of the following items for the food pantry:  crackers / jello or pudding cups / peanut butter / jelly (no glass jars please)

Donations may be dropped into the NCM tub in the Mt. Carmel foyer (near the handicap entrance.)  Monetary donations are always appreciated as well.  Just make your check out to the church, and mark it for NCM.  Thank you!


Notes from the Office ...
  • The church office will be closed on Friday, January 11th.  Please plan any church business accordingly. Thanks!
  • The UMW Friday Night Circle meeting location has changed. The meeting is now scheduled for January 11th at 7:00 p.m. in the Hope House. Please mark your calendar.


Leadership Style Discovery Workshop

Open to all church members
Church leadership highly encouraged to attend 

Do you love being involved in your church, your school, or your community, but find that most committee work leaves you wondering why you even bother? Do you… 

• get frustrated because the group can never make a decision? 
• feel useless because the leader makes all the decisions without input from anyone else? 
• feel overwhelmed at the thought of leading a committee? 

Come to a Leadership/Interaction Style Discovery workshop! Together we will identify different ways of approaching community work, gain insight into our behavioral tendencies in various contexts, and learn how to be more effective when working together as a team. 

January 26, 2019 – 9 - 12 noon, 
Snacks provided ~ Double  Classroom 
For food and material purposes, please register NOW at office@mtcarmel-umc.org
