Kid's Corner
Kid's Swimming Postponed

Please note that due to the forecast of bad weather this weekend, the swimming outing planned for Sunday afternoon has been postponed. It will be rescheduled for sometime in June.
 
June 4 - 8, 2018    9:30 AM - 12:30 PM

We are very near capacity for VBS 2018, so online registration has been closed.  If you have not yet registered your child, please contact Leslie Raymer or the church office to see if there are any spaces left.

We do still need both adult, and especially youth volunteers. Online registration for volunteers is still active, so please sign up and join the fun in June for VBS week!

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 contact Sam Tapley or the church office

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 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) 


Mt. Carmel Women's Book Club: June 1

All women are invited to join the Book Club which meets on the first Friday of the month at 7:00 p.m. for refreshments and book discussion.

On June 1st, the meeting will be at Susan Posey's home, and the book for the month is The Kitchen House, by Kathleen Grissom.
