We are all A.B.L.E.

And our Spring Carmel SERVE (April 26-29) is a great way for individuals and families to get connected  with a local ministry partner  to BUILD relationships and LIVE the gospel with EVERYTHING.

This is a sampling of what we have planned:
  • Play bingo with and encourage nursing home residents.
  • Deliver beds and needed furniture to families.
  • Beautify school grounds with families at partner CMS schools.
  • Assemble snack bags for at-risk children in CMS.
  • Pray for the needs in our city and write notes of encouragement to ministry partners and their clients.
  • Serve meals and play board games with men and women recovering from addiction.
