Get Involved

You have gifts. Use them, share them.

The truth is, we’ve all got gifts. We want to help you share them with the community and the church.

At Mt. Carmel, there are many ways you can LIVE out God’s Word as that Word lives in us, calls us to meaningful work and works daily in us. We want to help you identify and engage your gifts and passions, equipping you for God’s work in this world. We are all essential parts of Christ’s body, acting with our individual gifts and passions.
