Homecoming / Heritage Sunday
August 20, 2017

Sunday was a great day at Mt. Carmel! 

Many thanks to all of those who portrayed characters from Mt. Carmel's past (and some of them really WERE characters!) and a special thanks to Lori Anderson for organizing it all!

And of course everyone enjoyed the abundant lunch with 
friends following the service!

Do You Have Lunch Plans on Sunday?

If not, then plan to join the Lunch Bunch at about 12:15!  This Sunday (Aug. 27) they'll meet at Kiko's Mexican restaurant, just down the road from the church.

(left from church, cross over Medlock Bridge, turn immediate right into Texaco station - Kiko's is on the far side of parking lot)

Everyone is invited!  See Wynne Buran with any questions.

Flamingos Coming Soon!

The Mt. Carmel Youth Flamingo Fundraiser to benefit the 2018 Summer Mission Trip is underway! 

Flocks of Flamingos will begin appearing on the lawns of members and friends of Mt. Carmel the week of Sept. 17. 

If you DO NOT want the Flamingos to visit you, please stop by the insurance table on Sundays, located outside the sanctuary door, to purchase your insurance in the amount of $15. 
Insurance policies will be sold on August 27, Sept. 3 and 10. 

If you would like for the flamingos to come for a visit, please check the box on the back of the Connect Card in the bulletin or you can stop by the Flamingo Table and sign our Nesting Site sheet. 

When the flamingos arrive at your house, please follow the directions that are in the bag on a flamingo. Please do not bring the flamingos back to the church - they will be removed within 24 hours. 

The flamingos visit your home in acts of kindness and love from the youth. Thanks for your support!!
