Learn, Live and Share God's Word

What does our missionmean?

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.

Upcoming Events

Last Sunday'sSermon

Each week, we feature Sunday’s sermon here in audio and text forms. You can view past sermons by going to the Sermon Page, or listen to past sermons on our Mount Carmelcast podcast.

Announcements &Opportunities

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

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.

Get Involved: join a group or committee

Committees and other groups are always seeking new members. Bring your energy, new ideas, and talents to any committee or group.

Wondering how to connect with a group to join? Talk to a member of the group, someone from council, or contact the office. They’ll help you get connected!

Easter Food Baskets

Help us give Easter food baskets to families in need this year!

Kathy Halverson and Barb Hollister are again heading up this small group ministry in our community, and are seeking financial contributions to purchase the food, volunteers to help pack and distribute the food on March 30th and 31st, and neighbors or friends who could use an Easter basket. Contact Kathy or Barb, or contact the office if you can help or know someone who could use our help.

Serve Supper at Minneapolis Crisis Nursery

Kathy Halverson is recruiting 6-8 volunteers to help prep dinner beginning at 4 p.m. on April 19th. The children eat at 5 p.m. and there is cleanup afterwards. The total time commitment is about 2.5 hours. Volunteers must be age 12 or older, with all volunteers under age 18 accompanied by an adult age 21 or older. Contact Kathy Halverson or add your name to the signup sheet outside of the church office.

Coming April 11 – GPS: Finding direction in your faith and life journey

Join us for a 12 week shared experience on partnering with God in the world.

Part 1 (six courses) will run on Wednesdays from April 11-May 16. Part 2 will run in the fall.

Do you wonder sometimes whether life on this earth is meaningful at all? Whether or not your daily activities make any difference whatsoever? Join us for a shared experience called GPS.

We believe at Mt Carmel that what happens in this world and in our daily lives is hugely meaningful because God is at work there. That shouldn’t surprise anyone, since God created and loves this world! Not only is God at work in this everyday world of ours, but God invites us to join him there to make our world a more trustworthy and hopeful place. What does God call us to do and how do we participate? Discernment is the key here, and that involves paying attention to what God is up to in this world, what our neighbor needs, and WHO WE ARE! One of the biggest keys to understanding what God is up to through us is paying attention to what our individual gifts are. In GPS, we will lead participants through the many ways we are gifted – not only for our own benefit, but for our neighbor’s as well.

Join us on Wednesdays, starting on April 11, as we explore our gifts, God’s callings, and what it means to be a co-creator with God of a more trustworthy, hopeful and God-centered world.
