OurMission

Learn, Live and Share God's Word

LEARN God's Word

We learn God’s Word when we gather around the written Word—the Bible—and the living Word—Jesus Christ—to discover together that we belong to God, who has given us a new life and narrative.

LIVE God's Word

When we live God’s Word, we serve as agents of God’s work in the everyday world through our faith and unique gifts. In fact, God is at work through us no matter where we are or what we’re doing.

SHARE God's Word

We share God’s Word when we participate with God by loving our neighbors in all the dimensions of their lives, seeking Spirit-led community with them, and engaging in advocacy on their behalf.

All are welcome!

We invite everyone to worship with us each week and enjoy fellowship following worship!


Mt. Carmel extends a special welcome to visitors! Please fill out a visitor card in the pew rack and drop it in the offering plate so that we can stay in touch.

We believe in intergenerational worship! We welcome and value children of all ages as a part of our worship. Children’s activity bags are on the lower shelf of the book cart in the narthex. If you need a more private space with your children, you are welcome to use the narthex or the family room in the back of the balcony. We also have a nursery staffed and available for little ones during worship services. Ask the ushers if you need assistance.

Portable hearing devices, large-print bulletins and back cushions are available from the ushers.

Mount Carmel is active in our community. Here are volunteer opportunities in the community, along with announcements for our congregation. 

Mt. Carmelites Softball Team

The Mt. Carmelites softball team celebrates 29 seasons this year!

Co-ed softball players are wanted, ages 18 to 107. Previous experience not required. All games are on Tuesday evenings at New Brighton park fields, first game on Tuesday, May 1st. Our practices will be held Sunday, April 22 and 29th at 1 p.m. at Waite Park.

Come join in the fun and fellowship! Contact Diane Langer or sign up outside the church office with your phone number and email address.

Mount Carmel supports the Sheridan Story’s effort to combat hunger in our community.  The Sheridan Story provides food for students to take home each weekend of the school year. Volunteers pack lockers with food bags for about 50 students at Waite Park Elementary on Friday afternoons, every other month.  If you are interested in helping please contact the office or Matti Gurney.

April Feminine Hygiene Product Drive

Hannah & Zoe Lathrop are collecting feminine hygiene products for homeless women and students in he Twin Cities. When people donate, it’s often clothes or food or regular hygiene products, but many women don’t get the feminine hygiene products they need, as most items are expensive, and other more important things end up being bought first. We are doing the drive because this is a topic many feel uncomfortable talking about, but this is a problem that needs to be discussed and brought to people’s attention so we can work to solve it as a community.

We will be collecting menstrual pads and tampons in a box by the office during the month of April. All donations will go to the organization I Support the Girls. If you have a group or committee that would like to help, both Hannah & Zoe would be happy to attend a meeting to talk further about this project. If you have questions, reach out to either Hannah or Zoe. If you would like to order online and have product delivered to the church, ship to: Mt. Carmel Lutheran Church, 1701 St. Anthony Pkwy, NE, Minneapolis, MN 55418.
