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!

Children over 5 are invited to stay and enjoy the music during the service. Childcare is offered downstairs for those 5 and under.

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!

Hope to see you on Sunday!


Baptism & Welcome

We were so happy on Sunday, July 15th, to welcome new member Melanie Traber to Mt. Carmel!  It was also good to meet all of her family. Melanie was baptized and joined the church at the 9:30 service. 

Sadly however, Melanie and her family will soon be moving to Pennsylvania. We will miss her, and her daughter Alexandra, but wish them all well in their new home.

Thank You from MUST Ministries

Even though we did not participate in packing lunches for the MUST Summer Program this year, you all still helped the ministry!  

Since more money was donated last year than was needed, we were able to forward a donation of $200 on to them to help with this year's program.

We received a thank you note from MUST last week, expressing their appreciation for the gift.

Thank You!


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.
