Happenings around Mt. Carmel Lutheran Church

Confirmation Class
Sunday, Mar 17 at 11:00 a.m.
This Sunday we will be meeting with the High School class at 11:00 (right after the church service) for bowling and pizza at Cal Poly Mustang Lanes. I am sure Martin Luther would have taken a class day off for pizza and bowling! Bring a pair of socks to wear for the bowling shoes. We will return to Mt Carmel shortly after 1:00. 
Come join us for our annual Lenten Soup Suppers hosted by various church groups each week during Lent:

       March 20 – Men’s Breakfast
       March 27 – Norm’s Team & Community Building Team
       April 3 – Congregation (Sign-up)
       April 10 – Children and Teen (CAT) Ministries

A sign-up sheet is available in the narthex for the congregation to bring soup, bread, milk, or juice on April 3. Bowls and utensils are supplied – or bring you favorite soup mug from home – and enjoy homemade soup and fellowship.
Sundays, 11:00 am in Quist Hall
Pastor Richard will lead a discussion on Psalm 91 and the Book of Psalms using the Lenten Devotion book Lasting Hope.

Next week, Pastor John Rollefson will continue the Lenten series with a discussion on Psalm 27.
Wednesdays at 7:00 pm

We will gather under the theme “Sense-Making Faith.” Each week we will explore how our senses are connected to our experience and faith in God.

Once again this year we are able to bring a bus full of excited, a bit anxious, but happy children from Riverside, CA to CMC to visit their dads. This annual event will be on May 18 this year, and for some children this may be the only time they get to see their dads. After their visit at CMC, the children and their chaperones will come to Mt. Carmel for a party and a chance to relax before they get back on the bus to return to Riverside. There will be ice cream sundaes and games, but mainly your friendly faces to greet our guests and make them feel welcome.

There are nine buses full of children coming from all over California. Mt. Carmel, Mountain Brook and Mind Body will be hosting parties for all of them. We have been blessed to support the Riverside bus for the past eight years, and over that time have been able to hear many beautiful stories. We have seen some children not return to Get on the Bus, as their dad has been released and has returned home to the family he has gotten to know through these visits.

This all takes your time and your donations. Get on the Bus Sunday will be on March 17. Your own GOTB volunteers will be available to sign you up to volunteer, to take your donations, and to answer any questions you might have. Please come on March 17. Contact Nancy Priddy at 805-459-9249 with any questions.
