  • Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS)

    At MOPS, we believe in the simple but revolutionary idea that remarkable things happen when moms come together. That’s why we rally women, in their own neighborhoods, to help them become more brave, kind and honest, one gathering at a time. It is our goal to provide a Christ-centered, caring ministry where friendships, creativity, and personal relationships with other moms and Jesus Christ can develop.

    So, whether you are a soon-to-be mom, first-time mom or seventh-time mom, you are welcome here. Whether you are an adoptive mom, young mom, seasoned mom, foster mom, stepmom or any other type of mom, you are welcome here!

    Visit our MOPS page for more information!

     
  • Infertility/Miscarriage Support

    The goal of "The Cry of My Heart" is to create a community of support around the difficulties some encounter when trying to start a family, and to recognize God's love and mercy through these trials. Whether you've been affected by infertility, miscarriage, stillborn, infant loss or adoption loss, our hearts are open you you.

    We meet for Bible study and hold a service of remembrance on the Sunday closest to October 15, National Infant Loss & Miscarriage Remembrance Day.

  • Lutheran Women In Mission (LWML)

    This auxiliary organization in the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod strives to develop the spiritual gifts of women through fellowship, Christian growth, and mission service.

    We sponsor many mission-minded projects and events, including collections (socks, baby items, food), quilt making, a cookie walk, care packages for college students, and more.

    And, the first weekend of every month at the Carmel site the LWML places large Mite Boxes by the Sanctuary and Worship Center at our Carmel site to collect your spare change for mission work. Your change can make a real change!

    Join with us as we make a difference in the world through the love of Jesus Christ!

    Contact LWML President Marcy Culter with questions.
