outreach ministry

Here at Karmel we are passionate about reaching out to our local communities.  We believe that serving is a way to show others about the grace and love we have received through Christ.  



"For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” - Mark 10:45








GARDEN GIVERS

Our church has maintained a large garden for several years for the purpose of providing fresh vegetables to our local food shelves. In 2018 alone, our garden produced over 3,000 pounds of vegetables! In addition, we grow hundreds of pumpkins and harvest them for our annual Karmel Family Apple Fest.


The success of our garden requires the dedication of many volunteers. If you would like to contact our church office or email karmelgardenministries@gmail.com if you would like to donate time to this amazing ministry. Together we can grow!


BARREL MINISTRY

Each month we gather donated supplies for a chosen organization in need of assistance. The supplies are gathered into the "barrel" and distributed to the chosen organization at the end of the month.  


THE GATHERING

The purpose of this ministry is to provide safe and enjoyable non-medical respite care for seniors while also providing a few hours of relief for caregivers. This FREE program includes lunch, crafts, light chair exercises, games and socialization.
