All Music Sunday / Summer Lunch 

& Ice Cream Contest!  

July 22, 2018 - 10:30 a.m.


Sunday, July 22 will begin with ONE worship service at 10:30 a.m. This combined service will feature both the 9:30 musicians and the chancel choir, and there will be time for requests of your favorite hymns too!

Following the worship service, there will be a summer lunch of grilled hamburgers, hotdogs, and all the fixin's.  And then we'll have a Homemade Ice Cream Contest.

All food will be provided, only the ice cream contest participants need to bring anything.

If you think you make the BEST homemade ice cream, please bring a freezer full and enter the contest.  The winner will be presented with the prestigious "Golden Scoop" award!

Mark your calendars now - you don't want to miss this fun Sunday!

Kid's Corner
Good news! We have new babies in our nursery and several new kids attending our Sunday School program and are looking for additional adult volunteers for the fall, winter, and spring 2018/2019. 

The Mt. Carmel Children's Program is seeking volunteers to help with nursery care and extended session (3 - 5 year olds) this fall. We also would love to have additional adults to help with both our 3rd to 5th and PreK to 2nd grade Sunday School programs. 

The obligation for both nursery care/extended session volunteers and Children's Sunday School teachers is not more than once per month. 

Please email Leslie Raymer at lraymer.mtcarmel@gmail.com or fill out the Connect Card in your bulletin on Sunday.


Youth News

This week, instead of the regular Youth programming on Sunday evening, the Youth will meet at 4:30 and go to play laser tag at Laser Quest and have dinner at Steak & Shake.  (RSVP to Emily TODAY!)

On regularly scheduled Sundays, the youth meet at 5:15 for dinner together, then have games, music and a program.
