Norcross Cooperative Ministry: Local Kids 
Need Our Help!

The current food pantry need 
this summer is for 
kid friendly foods and snacks. 

Many of the NCM clients are children who, during the school year, depend on school lunches, so in the summer there’s an increased need to help provide food for them. 

Suggested items include: 
 Sandwich crackers 
 Fruit cups 
 Non-perishable fruit snacks 
 Muffin pouches 
 Juice boxes 
 Peanut butter 
 Jelly (plastic jars) 
 Macaroni & cheese

Donations may be left in the NCM box near the handicap entrance of the church.  Monetary donations are always appreciated as well - please make checks out to Mt. Carmel, marked for NCM.  Thank you for helping our neighbors!

If not, you’re invited to join the Lunch Bunch at Kiko’s Mexican Restaurant following the 10:30 a.m. worship service!

Preschool Garden Camp
is coming soon! 
June 18 - 21

The Mt. Carmel Preschool is once again offering two camps this summer. Garden Camp: June 18-21 and Painting Camp: July 23-26. Each camp will have a busy schedule that will include outside time, music and movement, stories and themed crafts, all packed in to a 4 hour day! 

The children will attend from 9:00 - 1:00, Monday through Thursday. All children ages 3 - 6 are invited if they are potty trained. 

Email Cindy Bill at mtcarmelpres@comcast.net if you are interested, or need more information. You can also print out the registration forms from the church website. 

You don’t need to attend the preschool to come to camp, so invite your friends and join us! The cost will be $100 for the week.
