Making Disciples for Christ
Mt. Carmel family thank you for signing up for our Making Disciples for Christ program. This program consists of four components: Out-Reach, Up-Reach, In-Reach, and Cross-Reach. We want to provide you with the goal of each component so you can select the one that most fits your gift or personality.
Out-reach – To encourage the broader Mount Carmel community to be engaged in the Mount Carmel Church by creating a welcoming space and an inviting environment.
Up-Reach – To provide spiritual and social support to members by encouraging and challenging members to participate in the life of the church.
In-Reach – To inform Mount Carmel Church members of our ministries and to encourage involvement through personal connection. To help guide members based on their gifts, talents, and interests.
Cross-Reach – To sustain membership through counseling by helping members navigate conflict and ensuring their needs for love, belonging, and esteem are being met.
We hope this helps you in selecting a component to be a part of, as we a congregation of His people intentionally do what Jesus has instructed us to do in Matthew 28:19.
The women’s ministry is asking Mt. Carmel to support Angel Tree again this year. Angel Tree is a Prison Fellowship program that serves incarcerated families. Angel Tree Christmas connects parents in prison with their children through the delivery of Christmas gifts given on the parent’s behalf. We need your help with gift purchases, wrapping, and donations. Be sure to stop in the Narthex to select a family to support.

Please enter through the front doors and gather in the Narthex.
MCC Study Group (Sunday School)
MCC Study Groups will be starting a brand-new study, “Kingdom Disciples: God’s Representatives on Earth” by Tony Evans on December 3rd. Each group meets at 8:45 am each Sunday. This invigorating study will give us the necessary tools to be disciples and make disciples. We encourage all members to join a Sunday School class. Use the rest of this month to try out classes you might want to join. Please contact Toreya Harris for assistance in finding a class that might interest you. We look forward to seeing new faces in our study groups.
Because of your consistent giving during Sunday School, our newest study book, “Kingdom Disciples: God’s Representatives on Earth” is now available in the bookstore for a reduced price of $10. Please continue to give during the Sunday School hour, or mark it on your offering so we can continue to offer our study materials at an economical price.
