This Sunday we kick off a
new sermon series as Pastor Alex unpacks the "how" and "why" of living boldly on mission in a new decade.
We'll also formally
celebrate Pastor Clay Barnes' retirement after 29+ years of ministry at Carmel. If you or your family have been impacted by Clay's ministry, please write him a note of thanks or encouragement. Simply
reply to this email with your note by noon Friday or drop your note at the Welcome Center on Sunday morning.
