Advent and Christmas at Mt. Carmel

You are most warmly invited to join us at Mt. Carmel for worship and other special events of the season.

Our Advent Evening Prayer services (Wednesday, December 4, 11 & 18) offer a time of quiet contemplation in preparation for Christmas. On December 18,  the “Blue Christmas/Longest Night” provides a space for those experiencing the difficulty of loss and sadness in the midst of a season t often focused on happiness.

9:30am Sunday, December 8: Children’s Christmas Program

On Christmas Eve we have two opportunities for worship.

5:00 pm Family Worship: a more informal “kid-friendly” worship

with Holy Communion and Candle lighting

7:00 The “Christ-mass” Festival Candlelight Worship with Holy Communion

You don’t have to be Lutheran. You don’t have to have faith all figured out. No matter where you are on your spiritual path, you are welcome here.

You are welcome here whether you are young or not so young, a lifelong Lutheran or a curious agnostic, or just someone seeking a fresh expression of Christ’s love. To all, we affirm:

You are God’s beloved child

Mt. Carmel Lutheran is located a few blocks from California Polytechnic State University, just off Grand Avenue in San Luis Obispo.  We are a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, a community of faith that is built around a strong belief in God as made known to us in Jesus Christ.
