Homecoming / Heritage Sunday
August 20 - Combined Service

Mark your calendar for Homecoming/Heritage Sunday on August 20 at 10:30 am. 

We’ll journey back in time as we listen to “Voices From The Past” and meet church members from the 1800's to the 20th century sharing tales about Mt. Carmel’s history. 

After the service, everyone is invited to our traditional “covered dish” lunch in the Fellowship Hall.

Please bring a dish or two to share, and we’ll continue the day of celebration of Mt. Carmel!


Lunch Brunch this Sunday!
August 13
This week the Lunch Bunch will meet for BRUNCH 
at about 10:45 a.m. (right after the 9:30 service)

We'll meet at the Duluth Diner:
3620 Peachtree Industrial Blvd,
Duluth, GA 30096

Right out of church / Left onto Peachtree Ind. Blvd. / Diner is on the right, just before the light at Howell Ferry Rd.

Hope you can join us!  See Wynne Buran with any questions.

Kid's Corner: 
We had a wonderful time at our end of summer water fun day at on August 6th! Many thanks to the Mt Carmel youth who helped to make this a fun day for everyone. The pictures speak for themselves!
Due to this week's Family Promise use of our Sunday School rooms, and the lack of furniture that this entails, we will have a combined SS class in the Double Classroom Sunday, August 13th. 

There will be a single service on Homecoming Sunday, August 20th, so no Sunday School. Younger children (Pre-K through 1st grade) are invited to come downstairs after the Children's Sermon, older kiddos are asked to stay in church for the Homecoming service. 

Regular Sunday School will resume on Sunday, August 27th.

UMCOR Volunteers Needed

UMCOR is seeking willing volunteers 1 day per month, approximately 10 am to 2:45 pm to help make badges for early response team members and others responding to humanitarian needs following disasters. An UMCOR badge reassures survivors and officials alike of the wearer’s connection to UMCOR and the people of the United Methodist Church. 

Volunteers for badge-making will receive training, and all necessary equipment is provided. 

LOCATION: 
UMCOR Headquarters 
458 Ponce de Leon Ave. 
Atlanta GA 30308 

IF INTERESTED, PLEASE CONTACT… Annamarie Reed at areed@umcor.org or 404-460-7663. 


Preschool Consignment Sale in the Fall
 
The Mt. Carmel Preschool will participate in a consignment sale this September and they need our help!

The sale will be at Christ the King Lutheran Church in Peachtree Corners and will include children’s items as well as household things.

If you are cleaning out closets before we head back to school and have children’s fall/winter clothing, shoes, sports equipment or toys, or any household items you are getting rid of, we would love to take it off of your hands! 

All proceeds benefit the Preschool. Last March we made almost $1,000 at the consignment sale and we are hoping to do the same in September! 

Just bring your donated items into the church office any weekday this summer and we will take it from there. I can also provide you with a receipt for your taxes next year.

Thank you!
Cindy Bill - Preschool Director
