Caring for our community

Mount Carmel Christian Church is financially supported and resourced through the faithful generosity of our church family. Your gifts allow the church to serve as a transformation hub in our community and across the globe. Partnerships with several local ministries help support vital work across our community. Monthly support is sent to 8 international missionaries serving abroad to share the message of Christ. When you give to MCCC, you are working in partnership with Mt Carmel to fulfill our mission to “Love God, Love People”.


Whether your gift is of time, talent, or treasure, giving is a way of showing that God is ultimately the owner and ruler of this world and our lives. One aspect of spiritual growth is to trust God’s directives in our lives, including the way we manage resources and finances.


The tithe, or giving 10% of your income, is a baseline training in faithful generosity which was practiced by the faithful in the Old Testament. We encourage Jesus followers who want to experience the faithfulness of God to start tithing. Sacrificial giving, over and above the tithe, is practiced by many followers of Christ to further strengthen their commitment to the Kingdom. If you are currently giving, but not tithing, we encourage you to increase the level of your gifts as your circumstances permit. Investing and participating in the local church is a way to make the kingdom of God more visible in the world.
