General Information

Sunday School starts at 9:45am.
Sunday Morning Church Service starts at 10:45am.

Many members of our congregation dress a little more traditionally for church service but you will see a wide range of attire. Whether you prefer a suit or jeans, our best advice is to come dressed comfortably. You will fit in, no matter what you wear.

Communion is celebrated the first Sunday of each month, with a few exceptions during the year. We believe in an open Communion Table where all are welcome.

Sunday School is held from 9:45-10:30am and there are classes for all ages. Before and after Sunday School is a wonderful time to connect with our congregation.

We look forward to meeting you soon!

At Mt. Carmel, we strive to serve.

Throughout the year we have numerous opportunities to serve those in our community, our country and those around the world with our love, service and gifts. In order for us to be able to help those in need, we depend on our members to volunteer their time and talents to help ensure our congregation is an active part of the community.
