Here are some photos taken at the ETC day at Mt. Carmel.  We had nice weather, even though a bit breezy and cool. The Blue Ridge Brass provided wonderful additional service music as we worshiped God.  The smell of barbecue chicken wafted around the corner as lunch was being prepared on the grounds.   Be sure to click on the link to the left and read the sermon from Sunday, "The Practice Field".  It was truly a day of experimentation and "practicing", working together as a church community to work through what came our way and enabled us to turn our thought to preparing the way for the Savior's advent.


















  We are the church as God intended ..."...a community of believers who come together to follow the teachings of the Bible and spread the message of God's love. Along the way, we teach and share. We sing and laugh. We roll up our sleeves and get involved. And sometimes, we're quietly still in the presence of God."



God's presence in your life

Mt. Carmel is joining the 21st century, slowly but surely!.  With the addition of the two Apple TVs at the front of the sanctuary we can now project items from the apple phone, I-Pad, or computer for all to see.  We have begun placing all prayers, hymns, readings, responses, etc. on the TV screens for everyone to see.  During the collection of the offering we will post a photo hopefully contributed by one of you.  We suggest something that demonstrates God's presence in your life and our world. 


Meet our two "adopted" children from Ethiopia. 

Mt. Carmel is helping to support them through the ICare program.

"Let's Talk

About Faith"


Click Here to read a copy of last week's sermon.




A worship service is a celebration. It is a time when we come into God’s presence and praise Him. Each service is filled with music and teaching, joy and insight.

We provide many opportunities for people of all ages to experience and celebrate God and a lifeResources for Lent of faith.


So we can sing it,

and tell it, and live it.


Our building is handicapped entry friendly including ramps, restrooms on two levels, and ground level entrances.  It is also air conditioned for summer comfort.


We welcome all who

wish to worship with us.  Travelers are extremely welcome, whether bikers, campers or 18 wheelers.
