Celebrating God’s Love in our Community

The people of Carmine pull together in service to their neighbors throughout the year.  One of the main events of the year in Carmine is the annual Firemen’s Feast (Click link for more information).  This fundraising event helps cover the cost of providing a fire department for this community.

There are large numbers of people who give of their time, energy and resources to make this event happen each year.  In order to provide a time of worship on Sunday morning for these faithful servants MLLC brings church to them.

A brief worship service with Holy Communion will be offered this Sunday, July 17, at about 7:30 a.m. at the Carmine VFD fire house. (We will also gather at MLLC for our usual time of worship at 9:00 a.m. this Sunday.)  All people who will be serving at the Firemen’s Feast Sunday morning are especially invited to participate in this time of prayer, Word and Sacrament.  We are expecting 50+ participants this year.  Most of the people at this service are the cooks for the chicken, but the service is not limited to those at the firehouse.  If you are going to be working at the dinner at Carmine Hall, please feel free to attend this 7:30 a.m. service at the Fire Station before you head over to prepare the hall for serving. The photo above is from a previous year’s service.

Jacob Fundraiser Event

Jacob Family

The Community of Carmine pulled together to support MLLC members Lane and Robyn Jacob, and their family, on Saturday, May 9. The event was a fundraiser to support this family in their time of difficulty.  This event was noted previously in this article:  click link.  It is a wonderful thing when people work together and serve one another.

Back in March 2015 their family home burned to the ground.  We are thankful that nobody was hurt.  The family was away at the time to support daughter Taylor at a rodeo event.

Following the fire the Carmine Community pulled together to support this family in their time of need.  Thanks to all who gave of their time, energy, materials and love to support this family.  It was a great way to show our love for our neighbors and to show love for one another in the community of faith.

The people of MLLC worked side by side with community members and friends, as well as various community organizations, to bring about a day of love and support for the Jacob family.

This day of support was one of a number of various ways people worked together to support this family.  As with anybody in such a situation the long term care, support, prayers and friendship which we offer will make a world of difference.
Here are some photos from the event:
