Homecoming / Heritage Sunday: 
August 19th - 10:30 AM

Plan to attend the combined 10:30 service on August 19th and join in singing some of Mt. Carmel's favorite hymns from the past, and celebrating the history of our church!


The service will be followed by a Pot-Luck Lunch in the Fellowship Hall. Everyone is asked to bring a dish or two to share. Drinks will be provided.


Norcross Cooperative Needs

As you know, the Mt. Carmel congregation supports NCM with donations of food, baby items, and monetary donations to help those in need in our community.

At this time, NCM is in need of the following:

Rice - 1 lb bags or boxes
Potatoes - boxed or canned
Canned Meat  - no tuna please
Jelly - in plastic jars
Boxed Cereal
Meals-In-A-Can

Monetary donations may be made out to Mt. Carmel, marked for NCM, and dropped into the offering plate or delivered to the church office.

Thank you for helping out our neighbors in need!



The Mt. Carmel Youth will meet at 5:15 for dinner and program this Sunday.  Remember to bring money for dinner!

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



Kids' Corner

Don't forget, Sunday August 19th is Homecoming Sunday, so we will have a single 10:30 service followed by a potluck lunch. 

Sunday, August 26, we will begin our fall Sunday School program during the 9:30 service. 

We are so happy to have some new babies and children coming to Mt. Carmel!  With these new additions, we could use a few more volunteers to help in the Children's Department.

Please email me or put a note on the Connect Card in your Sunday bulletin if you would like to volunteer in our nursery or with our Sunday School program. We can also use help this fall/winter with Fall Festival and our Christmas Pageant.

Director of Children's Ministry

Thank You Very Much!

Dear Mount Carmel friends and family, 

Thank you so much for your support of my recent voice recital. I have been so blessed to have this congregation’s encouragement and love. 

This church will always hold a special place in my heart. Thanks for letting me learn and grow not only as a singer but a faithful member of this church. 

Love, 
Elizabeth Sigmon
