Sermon Series: Encounters with Jesus

Praise...
Praise the Lord for the more than 1,800+ pounds of food and 100+ encouragement cards that were dropped off last Tuesday at Carmel by 130 families. Our prayer is that these items will be a tangible expression of the love of Jesus' to our neighbors at Merry Oaks, Carrington Place and Charlotte Rescue Mission.
Praise the Lord for the work and ministry that continues to go on "behind the scenes" - including the work of our Special Needs Ministry to provide a Sunday morning experience at home for the members of our Joy Class!
Praise the Lord for technology that allows us to stay connected while we are physically apart. The Wednesday night CircleUp Bible study "met" last week (pictured) and Discipleship Communities are staying connected virtually! 
Praise the those of you who have responded to the need for blood! Click here to visit our Outreach Update page for links to  information about safety protocols and to schedule an appointment time to give blood! 
Praise the Lord for this sweet reminder left by a Carmel Christian School family on the CCS birthday rock on campus.
