THEME: Being a Leader who can Be Imitated

SCRIPTURE: Hebrews 13:7 niv - Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider theoutcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.

In 1964, Dr. Joseph B. Felker, Jr. with a desire to promote fellowship among the leadership of Mt. Carmel, as well as raising funds to assist with  operation and  expenses coming upon the church, after building the upstairs Sanctuary, instituted, OFFICIALS DAY: A time of which five units of ministry of the church, the Ministers, Minister’s Spouses, Deacons, Deaconess, and Trustee Ministries would not only work throughout the year to have a financial report from their particular ministry, but would also support the other four ministries (along with other ministries of the church with their annual $10.00 support donation). Through the years Mt. Carmel would fellowship with Chicago-area churches that had their OFFICIALS DAY Services during the year. Each year, one of the five involved Ministries would develop the program for the Annual Officials day. On April 28, 2019, we celebrate the 55th Year of Officials Day Services at Mt. Carmel.
