  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.

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.

...Amen

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.
