Surrendering the Secret
Surrendering the Secret, a post-abortive Bible Study will begin the fall session September 25 at 9:30am. This is an 8 week, closed group, confidential study that is designed to bring freedom from the guilt of abortion. The group will meet off site but close to the church. For more details click here.
Wait No More Conference
With more than 700 waiting kids in North Carolina foster care and more than 15,000 churches in North Carolina, we believe we can find families for all the waiting kids. Carmel’s Mosaic Adoption Ministry is partnering with Focus on the Family to bring a statewide Foster Care Conference to NC. If you want to learn more about adoption from foster care, plan to attend our FREE event on Sept. 20, right here at Carmel. You’ll hear wonderful speakers and have a chance to connect with local adoption agencies and ministries. Please be in prayer as Carmel hosts statewide Foster Care agencies, Adoption agencies, and churches to partner together for the least of these. Learn more at icareaboutorphans.org/north-carolina/
Citywide Prayer to End Abortion
Carmel's Voice for Life Ministry invites you to a "Night of Prayer" hosted at Steele Creek Church of Charlotte on Friday, September 19, from 6:30-8:30pm, when interdenominational ministry leaders from across the region will lead prayers of petition, intercession and worship. This event is open to all who have a heart to pray for an end to abortion. Contact: Voice For Life Ministry at
