Pastor Marj Funk-Pihl

Welcome!  I'm so glad your search led you to our website!


Mt. Carmel Lutheran Church is a lively and alive place to gather to praise God and to get to know others who call San Luis Obispo home.


If you are looking for a congregation where people are excited to Gather to praise God, then come to Mt. Carmel.  If you want the chance to Grow in your understanding of scripture and how it applies to real life, then stay with Mt. Carmel.  If you need a foundation that will encourage and support you as you Go out to serve as God's hands, Mt. Carmel will be your home.  Every week we Gather for worship, Grow during education hour, and Go back into the world to serve as God's hands.  Together we will Gather, Grow, and Go for God!


If you're not sure about any of that - but are feeling drawn to things spiritual - come explore with us. Take advantage of all the pages of this website. There are pages designed to answer questions about what Lutherans believe and who we are as a denomination, as well as pages that will explain the different ministries of this congregation.
