Thank You 
Very Much!

The Mt. Carmel Staff would like to say a huge Thank You to the congregation for the generous Christmas Love Offering!

We appreciate the gift at Christmas, as well as your love and support all during the year!



Youth having a part in the upcoming Dinner Theater will have their first Rehearsal on Sunday, January 6 at 2:30 p.m.

Afterwards the Youth Dinner and Program will begin at 5:15 p.m. as usual.

Condolences

Our sympathy and prayers go to Jerry McDonald and his family on the death of Andy Loftis who passed away on Friday, December 28th.  Andy will be buried in Mississippi this week, and a local memorial service will be planned later in January.

Please keep Jerry and all of their family in your prayers.

-------------------------------------------------------

Sympathy is also extended to the Alesi Family on the recent death of Jim's father, Jack. 

Please keep Jim, Alison, Brennan and Katherine in your prayers as well.


Women's Book Club


The next meeting of the Mt. Carmel Women's Book Club will be on Friday, January 4th at 7:00 p.m. in the Hope House.

 

This month's book is The Widows of Malabar Hill, by Sujata Massey.  All women are invited for discussion, refreshments and fun!

 

See Chris Bolton or Vicki Walden for more information.


Altar Flowers 
for 2019 

It's time to sign up to sponsor flowers at worship services each Sunday in memory or honor of a loved one. 

If you would like to sponsor an arrangement, please contact the church office or check the box on the Connect Card in your Sunday bulletin. 

Cost is $40.00. Thank you!



On January 5th, the Girl Scouts from Troop 4535 will come by your house and pick up your Christmas tree for only $10! 

After the holidays, let them save you the trip to the chipper, and help them raise funds for their troop at the same time!   

Just contact Cynthia Grogin to schedule a pick-up.  And thank you for your support!
