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.

Join Us Sunday!

9:30 am – Worship

10:45 am – Sunday School

11:00 am – Adult Forum

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.

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. 

Mt. Carmelites Softball Team

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

Co-ed softball players are wanted, ages 18 to 107–especially women! Previous experience not required. All games are on Tuesday evenings at New Brighton park fields.

This week, the Mt. Carmelites play Dan’s Sewer Service at Vets Field at 6 p.m.

Next week, they play Bobdogs 2.0 at Sunny Square at 7 p.m.

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.

Remember Caramel Fest?

After a two-year hiatus, we are considering hosting Caramel Fest again this fall. But we are seeking feedback from the congregation to gauge interest in hosting an event, and determine how the event should be designed if one is to be held.

We have a brief survey that we are asking everyone to complete to help us determine whether to have an event and what form it would take.

If you have any questions, contact Brent Carlson-Lee.

Plants-a-Plenty Child Care Plant Sale

Now that we finally have nice weather, don’t run out and buy your plants from a garden store. Make a list and come purchase your plants from the Mt. Carmel Child Care, Thursday May 17-Sunday, May 20! Proceeds go toward supporting the child care.

Northeast Garage Sale - June 22-23

Gustavus Adolphus, Grace Lutheran and Mt. Carmel are hosting a garage sale during the Northeast Garage Sale weekend.

This year, we are seeking donated household items, clothing and yard tools to sell at the garage sale. No furniture or kitchen appliances, please.

This is a unique sale in that buyers pay only what they can afford or what they feel is reasonable. All funds raised are donated to the Little Kitchen Food Shelf. Last year, we raised $2,400 for the food shelf.

If you have items to donate or are willing to work 2-4 hours during the sale, please contact Lynette or Lory Dubbels.
