Fun at the Ballgame!

Thank You to the Mt. Carmel Men for sponsoring a trip to the Gwinnett Stripers ballgame last Thursday.

Over 30 church members and friends attended and had a wonderful evening!

Please keep Ted, Lynne and their family in your prayers.

Youth Sunday: August 5 - 10:30 Service


On Sunday, August 5, the Mt. Carmel Youth will lead a combined 10:30 service. It will include the Blessing of Backpacks, and also Sunday School Teacher Appreciation. 

Plan to be there, and students, bring your backpacks to be blessed for the new school year. We’ll also let our Sunday school teachers know how much we appreciate their hard work each week!


Blessing of School Supplies / Back Pack Blessing:

Blessing of school supplies for Berkeley Lake Elementary School: This Sunday, July 29: Rev. Michael will bless the school supplies collected by the Mt. Carmel Men to be donated to Berkeley Lake Elementary School students. Thanks guys!

Blessing of the Backpacks: On Sunday, August 5, all students are invited to bring their backpacks to church to be blessed before the start of a new school year!  Gwinnett County schools will be back in session on Monday, August 6.


Kid's Corner:
End-of-Summer Party!

Join us on Sunday, July 29, during the 
Sunday school hour (9:45 - 10:45 am)
for an 
End-of- Summer Party!  
We'll have ice cream, watermelon and fun!

Also, we have new babies in our nursery and several new kids attending our Sunday School program and are looking for additional adult volunteers for the fall, winter, and spring 2018/2019. 

The Mt. Carmel Children's Program is seeking volunteers to help with nursery care and extended session (3 - 5 year olds) this fall. We also would love to have additional adults to help with both our 3rd to 5th and PreK to 2nd grade Sunday School programs. 

The obligation for both nursery care/extended session volunteers and Children's Sunday School teachers is not more than once per month. 

Please email Leslie Raymer at lraymer.mtcarmel@gmail.com or fill out the Connect Card in your bulletin on Sunday.
