Church Picnic at Berkeley Lake: 
Cancelled - Rescheduled for Fall Festival


Since many families plan to be out of town this weekend, and also a possible rainy weather forecast, the picnic scheduled for Sunday has been cancelled. 

Instead, we’ll expand the hot dogs normally served at the Fall Festival into more of a picnic. Please spread the word and mark your calendars for Sunday, October 28 at 4:00 p.m.


Combined Service & Pot Luck Lunch
on September 30 - 10:30 a.m.
On Sunday, September 30, the Stewardship Committee will Kick-Off the 2018 Stewardship Campaign!  

We will have a combined worship service beginning at 10:30 a.m., followed by a Pot Luck Lunch in the Fellowship Hall.

Please bring a dish or two to share and come enjoy lunch with your Mt. Carmel friends!


  
  Kid's Corner: Children to Pack 
Flood Buckets for UMCOR 
Sunday, September 23

Please join the Children's Ministry Department on Sunday, September 23 at 10:30 as we pack UMCOR flood buckets for Hurricane Florence relief in the wake of this historic, terrible storm. We'll be in rooms 112/114 downstairs.

Even if you can't help to pack at that time, please check the list below and let us know if you can contribute items to this important effort. We will be purchasing materials to pack 2 to 3 buckets from our children's ministry funds. It would be wonderful if we could assemble 5 to 10 buckets to deliver to UMCOR. 

A container for donations will be near the Fellowship Hall.

Please hold everyone in prayer who will be in harm's way at the end of this week. 

See you Sunday, 
Children's Director
