UMW Day at the Lake: 
Saturday, September 8, 2018 - 
RSVP's Needed by August 31!


All women of the church are invited to enjoy a day of fun at the lake house of Margaret Crawford in Anderson, SC. 

We'll leave the church at 9:00 a.m., arrive at about 10:30, and then have fun eating and socializing. (Returning around dinner time.) Margaret has mentioned a boat ride for all who want to go, or others may decide to relax in the shade or float around in the lake for a while! (remember to bring a swim suit, towel and sunscreen!) 

Lunch will be furnished, but it is VERY IMPORTANT that we give Margaret an accurate head count by AUGUST 31 so that she can plan accordingly. 

If you'd like to join the fun, just check the box on the back of the Connect Card in your Sunday bulletin, or contact the church office (or 770-449-4498).

And THANK YOU to Margaret for graciously hosting the group again this year!


Lunch Bunch: 
August 26

Do you have lunch plans on Sunday?  If not, the Lunch Bunch invites you to join them at ‘Cue BBQ at about 12:15.

Monday Night Study Update

Everyone is invited to join the Monday Night Study Group as they begin studying the Gospel of Mark on August 27th. 

They meet each Monday night at 7:00 p.m. in the Hope House. See Steve Pearson for more information.



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 as usual this Sunday.  And get ready for those Pink Flamingos!

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



Kids' Corner

On Sunday, August 26, we will begin our fall Sunday School program during the 9:30 service. We hope you'll be there!

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
