Kids Corner: FLASH!
Only 2 Sunday Pageant Practices Left!

Parts have been assigned and now we're busy rehearsing our lines and songs!

We only have 2 Sunday practices, plus the Dress Rehearsal before the pageant date!  The smallest children will only need to stay for the first 15-30 minutes to learn the songs, then those with lines will practice after that.  Please come if you can!

This year, we are going to perform a traditional Christmas Pageant that will be replete with the holy family, shepherds, wise men/women, angels, and critters. We would like this play to be intergenerational, so hopefully some adults and youth will join in!! 

See you Sunday!

It's Time to Order Poinsettias

Once again, the Mt. Carmel United Methodist Women will sponsor the placing of poinsettias in the sanctuary for the Christmas season. 

If you would like to have a poinsettia placed in the church in honor or memory of someone, please fill out the order form in the Sunday bulletins and put it, with your check, in the offering plate, or contact the church office

Cost: $9.00 per plant.

Please make checks payable to: 
Mt. Carmel UMW. 
DEADLINE FOR ORDERS: Dec. 6, 2017.


The Angel Tree is Coming Soon!
Each year, Mt. Carmel sponsors families in need and supplies them with gifts and food for the holidays. This year families will be included from several local schools as well as the Norcross Cooperative Ministry. 

The tree will arrive in the foyer in time for the Thanksgiving Dinner on November 19th. It will be decorated with paper angels. Each angel has a gift that a member of the family has requested, and a number. Just choose an angel and on the sheet nearby, sign your name beside that angel’s number. Then do your shopping and attach the angel to the gift. 

The gifts MUST be returned to Mt. Carmel by Wednesday, DECEMBER 6th. (Place back under the Angel tree, or return to the church office during the week.) 

Please do not wrap the gifts. Either place the gift in an open gift bag, or leave it unwrapped. This will help when sorting out the gifts. 

Remember to stop by and pick up an Angel, and thank you for sharing the spirit of Christmas! 

P.S. If you would like to help with the sorting of the gifts on Wednesday, Dec. 6th beginning at 5:00 p.m., please check the box on the Connect Card in your bulletin. Thank you!
