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.

Announcements &Opportunities

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

Subtitute Sunday School Teachers Needed!

Substitute Sunday school teachers are needed to fill in or assist a full year Sunday school teacher when there is a need.

Just having a few individuals who are willing to jump in to assist is a great way to support our wonderful Sunday School teachers and our children.  Please email Nick Ralston if you are able to help.

Locker Packing at Waite Park

October is Mount Carmel’s month to pack lockers at Waite Park Elementary School for Sheridan Story!

Locker packing takes about an hour and starts at 1:30 on Friday afternoons. We will be packing on October 16, 26 and 31 (this includes a couple of non-Friday afternoons due to the school schedule).

We need volunteers to help put food into lockers throughout the year. Help us continue to fulfill our commitment to Sheridan Story and the children of Waite Park school!

If you would like to help out for an hour in the afternoon putting food in to kid’s lockers, please contact Matti Gurney or the church office.

Ushers Needed!

Come ush with us (okay, we don’t know if “ush” is a verb or not, but go with it)!

We need help!

If you are able to join a regular ushering team or be available as an occasional substitute usher, please speak to the Head Usher this Sunday or contact Rick Sundly or the church office.

Prayer Chain

The Prayer Chain is looking for a new leader!

If you are interested in leading the Prayer Chain, please contact Pr. John to discuss what is involved in leading this important ministry.
