Harvest Festival & Homecoming – October 18

Harvest Festival Food

We invite you to participate in the 2015 MLLC Harvest Festival and Homecoming.  This wonderful, annual tradition at MLLC provides the community an opportunity to celebrate God’s work among us and our love for one another.

Click this link to see our main page about the Harvest Festival & Homecoming.  There is a great deal of information about this event on that page.  So, please click over there to find out more.

This is the 6th year for this delightful event.  Each year we celebrate our life together under the grace of God.  In addition to the whole Carmine community, we invite all people who have ever been part of MLLC to participate in this special event.

We will make note of Confirmation Classes from years ending in “0” or “5”.  This has been our pattern for most of the history of the Harvest Festival.  Next year, 2016, we will recognize classes from years ending in “1” or “6”.

This will also be a fundraiser for the congregation.

Worship on July 19 – Firemen’s Feast Sunday

IMG_3852The 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.  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 19, 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 last year’s service.

The photo above is from a very special part of the event.  In recent years MLLC has sponsored a brief worship service with Holy Communion early on Sunday morning.  This provides the opportunity for the cooks to pause for prayer, God’s Word, Holy Communion and a time of thanksgiving.  The rest of the day after this is very busy for the cooks and other volunteers.
