Upcoming and Ongoing Events

Saturday, October 22, 4p: Benson Family Singers

The Mt. Carmel Foundation invites you and your family and friends to a concert featuring the Benson Family Singers, a family music group from Faribault, Minnesota. Peter and Rachelle, along with three of their sons, David, Aaron, and Luke, have a unique ministry of barbershop, bluegrass, and gospel music. They specialize in tight, a cappella harmonies and play a variety of instruments, including guitar, banjo, bass, violin, and mandolin. We look forward to seeing you for this family-oriented event.

Sunday, October 30, 12:30p:  90th Anniversary Luncheon at Jax Café (ticket details)

The fall events in celebration and recognition of our 90th year will conclude on Oct 30, Reformation Sunday. We will start with a celebratory worship service followed by refreshments in Fellowship Hall. Following will be a 12:30 luncheon and program celebrating our history at Jax Cafe.  We are honored that Pastor Rod Anderson will be our keynote speaker. Pastor Rod served his first call at Mt. Carmel as Associate Pastor from 1974-1977, before he began a new mission congregation, St. Andrew in Eden Prairie. After 40 years as an ordained minister,  Pastor Rod is now serving as Gustavus Association of Congregations Ambassador Program Coordinator. He and his wife, Julane, are very excited to join us for our anniversary celebration.

Explore Membership

On Wednesday evening, Nov. 2, from 6-8:30, Pastor John will meet with anyone interested in becoming members of Mt Carmel. This will include supper and is a great way to learn more about Mt. Carmel and what makes us tick. It’s also a chance to get to know some folks and it is a “no strings attached” meeting. It’s about exploring! Let Pastor John know if you’re interested or call the office.

Saturday, November 12, 9a-3p at Mt. Carmel: “Dwelling in the Word” Workshop

Are you interested in experiencing the Bible in a new way? As many of you are aware, the church council and adult forum participants have been exploring how to faithfully respond to our mission statement, part of which calls us to Learn God’s Word. One of the practices we will be developing here at Mt. Carmel is “dwelling in the Word,” which is a way to experience the Bible and to practice connecting with each other at the same time. Our congregation will host this workshop and there will be groups from other congregations—and hopefully some from NE—joining us. There is no charge to you and lunch is provided. Please talk to Pastor John or contact the office if interested.


Men's Bible Study each Wednesday morning at 6:45 a.m. Good conversation and hot coffee too!


Need a ride to church on Sunday? The Mt. Carmel mini-bus can pick you up! To coordiante a pickup for 9:30 a.m. Worship, please call mini-bus coordinator Trish @ 763-706-0408 each week by Saturday.
