From Pastor Cyndi

It's Music Sunday!

This Sunday, we’re combining the services for one music service at 10:30.

My dad, Wayne Goodwin, is returning as our song leader. I can’t wait, because he never drags out a song. At some point I’ll look down and realize that my toes have started tapping! 

It’s fun to watch friends from the 9:30 and 11:00 services catch up with one another. The 9:30 people will to get to sing some of the 11:00 favorites and hear the choir. The 11:00 friends will get to hear the 9:30 favorites and the 9:30 musicians. Everybody wins on Music Sunday, since everyone gets to sing it all! 

The only thing better than combining the services for one big singing is to follow it with good food and fellowship. Once again, the Adult and Family Ministries team is grilling and giving away burgers and dogs.

I can’t wait to see what flavors people bring for the Golden Scoop ice cream contest. We’ve had vanilla, dark chocolate, lavender, key lime… I can’t think of a single ice cream flavor that I have not liked. Nobody loses in an ice cream contest, since everyone gets to taste! 

I guess there is one thing that would make this even better ... if you are there!

I’ll see you at 10:30, 
Pastor Cyndi 

P.S. If you need even more good music and good food, bring a friend to Kiko’s worship on Monday at 7. The Gospelites are leading the music.


Wisdom from James and Charlie Brown 

Did you miss the wisdom of Charlie Brown and Lucy on the video last Sunday? 


You'll also want to watch the clip of Jason Campbell sharing his morning routine and what it means to him.



Thank You Jason!

Youth on Mission Trip this Week!

Our Youth Mission Team left Mt. Carmel on Sunday at about 7:00 AM and are now serving others in McDowell County, WV.

Please keep them in your prayers for safe travels and that the week is meaningful to them and those they are serving.

Children's Corner

Summer Sunday School and Other Fun Summer Stuff!
This summer, our Sunday school theme will be ‘A Summer of Service’ and we also have lots of other fun activities planned before school begins again!

And since "service" is hard work, there will be Sno-Cones at Sunday School too!

Here is our Summer Schedule:

June 26: Movie Night!  From 5:30 - 7:30 pm we will watch The Peanuts Movie, enjoy hot dogs, popcorn and ice cream sandwiches in the Fellowship Hall.  Bring your friends too, along with some camp chairs, pillows, etc. and join the fun!  (Any youth who are not on the Mission Trip are welcome to attend also.)

July 3: Family Promise Set-Up - Volunteers will stay after the 11:00 service to set up the downstairs rooms. Children may enjoy staying with their families to help make the rooms feel comfortable and cheerful for our Family Promise guests!

July 16 - 17:  Kid's Camping in the Fellowship Hall - We'll arrive about 4:00 on Saturday, have lots of fun, sleep-over, then be ready for church on Sunday morning!

July 31: NOTE THE DATE CHANGE for this one.  The Children's Dept. is in charge of a Quesadilla Lunch Fundraiser at 11:30 a.m., following the 10:30 a.m. Youth Sunday worship service. Watch for more information on when to sign up to help!

August 7: Blessing of the Backpacks during the Worship services, Promotion Sunday for Sunday school classes, then Water Fun in the afternoon at 2:00!

I'm looking forward to a fun summer with you all!

All Music Sunday / Summer Lunch & Ice Cream Contest!  June 26, 2016

Sunday, June 26 will begin with ONE worship service only at 10:30 am. This combined worship service will feature many of your favorites songs, and both the 9:30 musicians and the 11:00 choir will participate. Mark your calendar for this fun service!  

Following the worship service, there will be a SUMMER LUNCH of grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, and a Homemade Ice Cream Contest! 

All food will be provided, only the ice cream makers need to bring anything. 

If you think you make the BEST ice cream, please bring a freezer full to enter into the contest. The winner will be presented with the prestigious “Golden Scoop” award!

If you'd like to enter the contest, but need an ice cream churn, Pastor Cyndi has 2 that she could loan out!  Just email or call her!


Mt. Carmel Women's Book Club: July 1

The next meeting of the Women's Book Club will be on Friday, July 1st at 7:00 p.m. AT VICKI WALDEN'S HOME.

Light refreshments will be served as the group discusses this month's book, Destiny of the Republic, A Tale of Madness, Medicine, and the Murder of the President, by Candice Millard.

For more information, please contact Chris Bolton or Vicki Walden


Family Promise: July 3 - 10
Happy summer to all! 

This summer we will once again be a host church in the Gwinnett County Family Promise Program. We will host pre-screened homeless families in our church for a week, providing them with housing, food, fellowship, and most importantly, love. 

LOTS of volunteers are needed for the week, including dinner and overnight hosts, van drivers, meal providers, set up and tear down helpers, and laundry angels. 

Save the date, and sign up this Sunday to serve our  neighbors in need. 

It is truly a blessing to serve in this amazing ministry, seeing the Sunday school classrooms transformed into safe, cozy, inviting spaces for families in crisis, getting to know the guests and just being able to love them, providing needed food. Every act of love and service is a dot that connects our guests to independence. 

I look forward to serving alongside you! If you have any questions, please message lila.hunter@gmail.com or lorrie.ignatius@gmail.com. 

If you are new to Family Promise, Family Promise training and Safe Sanctuary training will be arranged for you. 

In His Love, 
Lila Hunter
