MUSICMINISTRY

Our purpose for the Children’s Ministry at Carmel United Methodist is to reach children for the glory of God and to give them a firm foundation. We seek to accomplish this by teaching children God’s word, showing them how to grow in their relationship with the Lord and challenging them to reach others with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We also desire to have the involvement of parents in discipling their children by spending time together in God’s word and being an example in how to live out God’s word every day.

At the 10:45 service we sing in the first part of the service and the choir exits the choir loft before the message.
