"The Power of Jesus’ Names” By Dr. Tony Evans

      Some names live in infamy, and some names inspire the greatest kinds of hope. But there is one name above all other names, and it belongs to the Son of God, Jesus. Jesus is the most unique person who’s ever lived, and his names carry with them great weight.

      In this six-session series, Dr. Tony Evans journeys around the stomping grounds of Jesus in the land of Israel and presents a complete picture of the Incarnate God. By teaching on each of the major names of Jesus, Tony brings us face-to-face with the Second Person of the Trinity. Shot in the major locations where Jesus himself lived and taught, we find ourselves asking one question: “What will we do with Jesus?”


Kids Christmas Play 2023
The kids Christmas Play is to be presented this year on Sunday, December 17 at 10:45am, at the Contemporary Service. It is a fun way for our kids to learn the story of Jesus’ birth through pantomiming the story but they will learn many Christmas songs. Kids ages 3 years old (by September 1, 2023) through 5th grade are invited to participate.

We can only accept a limited number of kids, so please sign up early.
Please make sure your child can attend 3 out of the 4 practices.
Practices are Sundays:
November 19: 4-5:30pm,
November 26: 4-5:30pm,
December 3:  4-5:30pm, and  
December 10: 4-5:30pm.

December 16: for principles only.

Please also sign up yourself to help with the play assisting the kids learn the songs and the meaning of the Christmas story by volunteering one time per child. Per our child protection policy a parent/guardian must remain in the building, so, this is not a drop off event, thank you. Questions, please email Pastor Aj at amildenberg@carmelumc.org.


Our purpose for the Children’s Ministry at Carmel United Methodist is to reach children for the glory of God and to give them a firm foundation. We seek to accomplish this by teaching children God’s word, showing them how to grow in their relationship with the Lord and challenging them to reach others with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We also desire to have the involvement of parents in discipling their children by spending time together in God’s word and being an example in how to live out God’s word every day.
