The time has come for the Church to begin transitioning back to in person services. All Covid-19 safety precautions will be in place for the benefit of our members and visitors. The live stream services will continue to ensure we all can worship in Spirit and in Truth.
The Lord’s providence and provisions has allowed us to maintain the strength and vitality of our congregation. He continues to dwell with us, blessing us even during the storm. He has blessed us with divine gifts beyond measure so let us bless Him with the “highest praise”. The Holy Spirit continues to guide, His messages have been for the Church to continue to adhere to the Word of God and to heed to those things we have seen and heard in the Word and that we must do. He is the administrator of the Church’s affairs and we must obey His directives.
As WE continue to navigate the waters of change in our lives brought on by our current state of affairs, be sure, be very sure our God is still on the throne. He is immutable for He changes not. WE must stand firm on His promises to never leave US nor forsake US. He has not given US the power of fear; but of power, and of love and of a sound mind. WE must continue to press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. We cannot be weary in well doing; for in due season WE shall reap, if WE faint not, as WE have opportunity, let US do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. Let US continue to serve the Lord with gladness in our hearts, thanking Him for His faithfulness, His goodness and mercy even in the midst of the storm. He shall make Mt. Carmel stronger, wiser, and better for His glory. So, let us remain steadfast, unmovable, and always abounding in the Lord, and He will cause His face to shine upon US. Words cannot express how proud of how the Church has conducted herself in these difficult times. I love you Mt. Carmel, keep pressing upward and onward.
Your Son in Christ,
Johnny M. Vance
Our desire at Mt. Carmel is to be a church family that is rooted in the Word of God and prayer. We aim to exalt God though authentic worship, to demonstrate Christ's love for mankind in a tangible way, and to prepare disciples to carry out the redemptive ministry of Christ in our neighborhoods, in the City of Dayton, and the entire world.
"We are the Lord's People, in the Lord's House, on the Lord's Day"
To exalt the Savior, evangelize sinners, and edify the saints. Victorious Living Though Christ
