Norcross Cooperative Ministry Needs Our Help in April!

April is one of Mt. Carmel's two food drive months for the Norcross Cooperative Ministry. 

This time it's all about peanut butter and jelly. Please bring your donations (in plastic jars or bottles, please) to the NCM display or tub in the church foyer. 

Monetary donations are always welcomed too - just make your check out to Mt. Carmel and mark it for NCM.

Thank you for helping those in need in our community.

Youth News
All Youth will meet this Sunday, April 22, 
beginning with dinner at 5:15 p.m.

Confirmation Class will begin after dinner, and Youth who are not in that class will then go on to the regular youth program.

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


From the Board of Trustees

In an effort to reduce the church's costs for garbage pick up, we have reduced the pick up to twice a month. This will save us $2500 per year, however we need your help.

Please remember that the dumpster 
is for garbage generated at Mt. Carmel only. Please do not use the dumpster for your personal garbage. 

Thank you,
The Board of Trustees


The Spring BBQ and Sweet Shop 
are just around the corner - April 27 & 28! 

Lots of volunteers are needed to make this event happen, so please check the sign up boxes on the back of the Connect Card in your Sunday bulletins to see where you can help! 


Flyers with dates and prices are available in the sanctuary and outside of the Fellowship Hall, so take a few and invite your family and friends too!  (Or click HERE to get one online.)


Blessing of the Animals: 
April 29 from 3:00 until 5:00 p.m.

Mt. Carmel will host this event outside on the front lawn and ALL pets (with leashes / cages please) are welcome! 

This year's Blessing will also include services offered by a local veterinarian.


Mt. Carmel Women's Book Club

The next meeting of the Book Club will be on Friday, May 4th at 7:00 p.m.  The book of the month is, Almost Sisters, by Joshilyn Jackson.

All women are invited to join the group for refreshments, discussion and fun!  Contact Chris Bolton or Vicki Walden for more information.


Global 6K Walk for Water: May 19


The Transformers Sunday School Class is at it again! We are partnering with World Vision on their 6K Walk for Water being held May 19th. 

The Transformers' walk will be held somewhere in the Peachtree Corners area, final route to be determined.

Why 6K you may ask. Well, that is the average distance a person has to walk in a developing country to get water! Hard to believe for something that we take for granted, yet this is true. 

To make matters worse, the water is often contaminated. Every day, 835 children under the age of five die from diarrhea caused by contaminated water, poor sanitation, and improper hygiene. 

Here's the good news. You and I can help; we can make a difference through World Vision's Clean Water Walk. Go to Global 6K for Water and sign up to walk with the Transformers, or to donate. 

You don't have to be a member of our Sunday School class or even our church to participate. Go to: Find a Host, then Georgia, then Transformers to sign up. 

We have set a goal of raising $2500 dollars. You can make this happen. If you have any questions, please give me a call or e-mail. My e-mail is spt404@hotmail.com and 770-833-0091 my number. 

Our past fund raisers have been a great success thanks to you. This one can be too! 

Blessings
Sam Tapley
