From the Stewardship Committee ...
The Committee would like to say a huge Thank You to everyone who has already turned in a Covenant Commitment Card during our "At Rainbow's End" campaign!  26 cards have come in so far, but we'd love to have more participation.

If you haven't yet turned in a card, please prayerfully consider how you can invest in our church, then complete a card and drop it into the offering plate or by the church office this week.

Blank cards will be available in the sanctuary and Fellowship Hall on Sunday.  Thank you for your generosity!

Norcross Cooperative Ministry -
Annual Youth "Can Drive!" 
Sunday, November 4: 5:00 - 7:00 pm


On Sunday, November 4th, the Mt. Carmel Youth will hold a "Can Drive" to support NCM and they need your help!

From 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. the youth will travel from house to house, picking up food donated by our church congregation.  If you would like for them to come by your house, please check the box on the back of the Connect Card in your Sunday bulletin, or contact the church office. Then do your shopping for NCM!

Most needed items are:  canned meat, peanut butter, jelly, canned fruit, canned soup, canned vegetables, pasta, pasta sauce, rice  (no glass jars please, and no out-of-date food)

Monetary donations are always welcomed too - just make your check out to Mt. Carmel and mark it for NCM. Thank you for helping those in need in our community.


Children's Choir a Success!


The first meeting of our new "Joyful Noise!" Children's Choir was on Sunday, October 14 and it was a hit!

11 children and 4 leaders gathered in the Double Classroom to learn about sharing our musical gifts with others, making crafts, and even meeting an occasional surprise guest! 

Our first worship service appearance will be during the 9:30 am and 11:00 am worship services on Sunday, November 18, so mark your calendars! 

If you have questions about A Joyful Noise, please contact Marianne at (770) 263-7125. We look forward to singing with you!
