Coming Home - Homecoming Sunday

Luke 15:32 by Art Stansberry
This Sunday for "Homecoming", as we celebrate 110 years of ministry at Mount Carmel Christian Church, we will unpack the meaning of the parable of the Lost Son. One of the most powerful passages in all of scripture is found in Luke 15:32 where the father says to the older son, "But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found." It is easy in this world to lose our bearing and find ourselves going the wrong way. But there is something comforting and soothing about finally coming home. This Sunday we will learn how easy it is to forget home and long for a distant country; we will learn how hard it is to take the first few steps toward home - but we will ultimately learn how rewarding it is to come home because that is where the Father is waiting for us. So join us this Sunday for Homecoming as we celebrate our Mount Carmel family.
