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!


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


The Transformers Sunday school class would like to invite YOU to join their class in their new meeting room – formerly the Friendship classroom, behind the sanctuary and across from the choir room. 
The Transformers meet from 10:45 – 12:00 and are just starting a four-week study on The Holy Spirit. If you are looking to join a small group, please consider this one. No commitment, just come when you can and enjoy some fellowship, learning and lively discussions. If you have any questions or would like to join, see Sam or Jacque Tapley.


Kid's Corner: VBS will be here Soon!
It may not seem like it in mid January, but in many ways our 2019 VBS, To Mars and Beyond, is just around the corner. VBS is scheduled for June 3-7th this year. 

Please let us know if you can volunteer to help out! We need artistic visionaries, decorators, set up/take down help, station leaders, sign in/out crew, snack kings and queens, and of course, most importantly, crew leaders to shepherd the children around each day. 

Fill out a connect card and drop it in the offering plate on Sundays, or email Leslie at lraymer.mtcarmel@gmail.com. We will have our first planning meeting in early February (date TBA). 

Also, please start saving the plastic lids to your Pringle's type potato chips and cans of tennis balls! In an effort to create indestructible name tags this year, we will be using these tough plastic lids for the children's tags. We will put a collection box in the Sanctuary on Sundays, and you can also drop them off to Suzanne in the church office. We are in need of at least 60 lids. 

This year we are limiting the number of VBS campers to 55, so it is important to register your kids as soon as possible when VBS registration is opened in mid-February. The first two weeks, only church and preschool families and their friends will be allowed to register. General registration will open on March 1st. This is going to be an exciting VBS program!!


Youth News

(Lucky Lucky Hudson and the 12th Street Gang - 2018)

This Sunday the Youth play practice will begin at 2:30 and last through youth time, so there will not be a youth program. But don't forget about the parent meeting at 2:30 also!

For more information on other Youth events, click the link HERE, or contact Youth Director, Emily Thompson.


Woman of the Year Brunch!

The United Methodist Women’s "Woman of the Year" brunch is planned for Sunday, January 27 at 12:15 p.m. 

All women are invited to the brunch to honor a woman who has gone above and beyond in her service to the UMW and the church as a whole this year. 

Stop by the Fellowship Hall after church on January 27th to see who this year's honoree is!


Men's Retreat: February 1 - 3

The Mt. Carmel men have planned the annual RETREAT for the weekend of February 1 - 3. We will stay in cabins at Amicalola Falls State Park. 

On Saturday morning we will be working on a community service project at the Appalachian Children’s Center, and on Saturday night, Rev. Scott Parrish will provide our program.

Please sign up to attend on the form at the rear of the church, or contact the church office. There is no cost for this retreat.


Women's Book Club


The next meeting of the Mt. Carmel Women's Book Club will be on Friday, February 1st in the Hope House. 

 

This month's book is Glass Houses, by Louise Penny. All women are invited for discussion, refreshments and fun!

Lenten Dinner Coordinator Needed!
Ash Wednesday is coming soon (March 6) and a volunteer is needed to recruit and coordinate groups to prepare and host Lenten Dinners this year!
