Do You Have Lunch Plans on Sunday?

Kids Corner: Pageant Practice Underway!

We will have our second Children's Pageant practice this Sunday during the 11:00 am worship service.

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

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!! 

If your child (or you!) would like to be in the pageant but haven't signed up yet, please see Leslie Raymer ASAP. There is still room!

See you Sunday!

Church-Wide Thanksgiving Dinner 
November 19 at 6:00 p.m.

Thanks to the Men's Ministry for providing turkey, ham, dressing, potatoes, beans, rolls and cranberry sauce! Everyone else should bring a favorite side dish or dessert to share and enjoy a Thanksgiving Dinner with your church family at Mt. Carmel.


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!
