Family Promise!


Sunday, June 11th from 12-3 pm 


We will meet downstairs in the Lower Fellowship Hall following the 10:30 worship service, eat a light lunch (provided) and then get our classrooms all set for our Family Promise guests to arrive!


We'll need some stronger helpers to unload beds and mattresses from the Family Promise truck which will arrive at around noon.


Other helpers can then pitch in to set up the rooms for each family, make beds, set up the dining hall, etc.


Contact Julie Jones with any questions.

Kid's Corner: VBS Update

Hi everyone! Here we are at Wednesday and the kids are all having a great time at Maker Fun Factory VBS. WOW God!! 

Many thanks to all the Mt. Carmel adults and youth who are working so hard to provide our VBS guests with a spirit filled, fun camping and worship experience. 

Please, all parents, join us on Friday at 11:35 for our Pizza/VBS celebration.

Also, this coming Sunday at 10:30, we will have our Children's Sunday worship followed by a reception with light snacks. 

Hope you can come and take part in Children's Sunday worship...we will be singing our VBS songs and worshiping our Maker God whom we have been learning about all week.

North Georgia Annual Conference: 
June 13 - 15 / Athens, Georgia

Pastor Cyndi, as well as other United Methodist pastors and lay delegates meet in Athens, Georgia next week at the North Georgia Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.

Please keep all of the Annual Conference participants in your prayers for a good and productive week!


Pastor Cyndi and Ed's 
last Sunday with us: June 18


Plan to be here for the combined worship service at 10:30 am, and then stay for the lunch / reception afterwards.


We'll be sad to say good-bye to Pastor Cyndi & Ed, but we want to make sure they know how much we love them and will wish them well in their new appointment.


Reverend Michael and Karen Martin's first Sunday at Mt. Carmel: June 25 


This will also be a combined 10:30 service, as well as Music Sunday, to welcome Reverend Michael and Karen. 


Afterwards we’ll have a cook-out style lunch and the traditional Golden Scoop ice cream contest!


(Remember to bring a tub of home-made ice cream to enter into the contest for the coveted Golden Scoop Award!)


Mark your calendars for this fun service and lunch when we will get to know Rev. Michael and Karen and make them feel at home.


Must Ministries 
Summer Lunch Program
June 26-30 

Mt. Carmel will once again participate in the MUST Summer Lunch Program, and we are asking for donations from the congregation to make this ministry as successful as it has been the past few years. 

We will need:
* juice boxes (Kool-Aid Jammers, Hi-C, Capri Sun)
* sweet and salty snacks - individually packaged -
    (cookies, granola bars, gummi treats, chips, Cheetos) 
* individually wrapped cheese singles -
   (1 lb. pkgs. or boxes of 72 slices)
* 1 lb. or larger packages of ham and turkey - 
    (no deli-style slices please, as these are thin and harder to           work with and we need to work quickly to get the lunches to         the church that delivers them to the local children.)

We also need people to stay after the luncheon on July 25th to help get things ready for Monday morning, as well as volunteers to prepare sandwiches and put 200 lunch bags together each morning, Monday through Friday. 

We will meet in the kitchen at 9:00 a.m. and are usually finished working by 10:30.

There will be sign-up sheets in the Fellowship Hall this Sunday morning, so if you can make a donation or work one or more days, it will be greatly appreciated.


Youth News

The youth will leave after the 10:30 worship service this Sunday to spend the afternoon at Six-Flags!

Regular Sunday youth meetings begin with dinner at 5:15 in the downstairs youth hall, followed by programming, fun and worship until 7:20.

For more information, see the Youth Newsletter HERE, or contact Youth Director Emily Thompson.


Thank You Very Much

Dear Mt. Carmel, 

I would like to thank everyone for the gift card, but more importantly I would like to thank everyone for the support and love that I have been shown throughout my time at Mt. Carmel.

I would like to thank the ones that have taught me during Sunday school and VBS, the patient adults that help out during the children’s Christmas pageant, the ushers and acolytes, the men's club (that have let me help out at the front during the BBQ since I was in elementary school :D), the youth counselors that have helped shaped me into the person I am proud to be today, and most of all I would like to thank this church for being there when I needed them most during my surgeries. 

Thank you for your kind prayers and your thoughtful messages of concern.

I am happy that I am a part of this church and I am proud to call Mt. Carmel my home. I will keep this church is my heart while I attend GCSU this year.

Thank you, 
Tarin Hinson
