Community Development Center

The Mt. Carmel Church Family Life Center and the surrounding community are striving to implement a broad eco-health, educational program that would impact the entire community, especially children and youths whose socio-economic limitations endanger their spiritual, physical, intellectual and emotional growth and personal welfare. We will develop educational programs for young people and adults alike, with focus on heritage, self - affirmation, human sexuality, what it means to be a man or woman, health, and biblical principles. Our goal is to build strong leaders of tomorrow by assisting them in the fulfillment of their potential without falling prey to crime, drugs, illiteracy, and social diseases; and to expand the Church's Christian outreach services.


Through the Family Life Center Mount Carmel will be able to reach out to the youths and help them to develop strong minds and bodies. "The body being the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye not your own. For ye are bought with a price; therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit which are God's" (1 Cor. 6:19-20). Thus the Family Life Center will enable us to carry out the mission and purpose of the church by meeting the spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional and environmental needs of all people by the spreading of Christ's liberating gospel through word and deed.
