Our purpose at Carmel United Methodist is to Glorify God by making disciples through students and families! Our desire is to teach students God’s Word, show them how to grow in their relationship with the Lord, and challenge them to reach their generation for Christ. We believe by having the involvement of parents in the discipleship of their children by spending time together in God’s Word, and placing biblical principles in their lives to live out (Deut. 6:1-9) will create student leaders that are passionate about living out their faith and have a desire to reach their community with the gospel.
