About Us

We are a church that is dedicated to serving others and serving God. This is the core of our vision and our mission.

Contact Us

We would love to hear from you. Feel free to give us a shout and connect with us.


"As the pastors of this unique faith community, we care deeply about the people and creation around us. Our congregation is as vibrant and inviting as the Native Habitat that surrounds our building and as bold as the solar panels on our roof. We hope you will join us on this adventure we call faith.


Each of us, exactly as we are--and as we are still becoming-- are named beloved by the One who created us. All are welcome as together we endeavor to be and create the Kin-dom of God. We listen deeply for what the Spirit is calling us to be and to do in this world. We wrestle with questions more than we offer answers. We like it that way; we believe Jesus did the same thing!


May you feel the presence of the Spirit and remember that you are loved as you explore both faith and doubt.  Perhaps your journey will lead you to Carmel, IN. If it does, we hope to meet you."

Lori Bievenour and Rebecca Lockwood

Upcoming Events 



Come and get involved!

Thank you to those who have already emailed or turned in their pledge cards! If you haven’t had time, or simply forgot, we are still accepting pledges for the upcoming fiscal year.  Please email Seth Kreigh at GenerosityLead@StPetersCarmel.org or fill out and return a pledge card in the offering plate during service.

Lodging Is Needed for the choir from Union Church in Berea, Kentucky on Friday, May 31.  They will be singing at the Indiana-Kentucky Conference’s Annual Gathering.  Would you be able to host singers on Friday night, May 31 and then provide breakfast Saturday morning?  They would arrive at your residence 8:00-9:00 p.m. and leave after breakfast.  If interested in hosting, please contact Cheryl at musicdirector@stpeterscarmel.org or 317-213-1871.  Thank you.

Ministry Server Opportunities: Are you looking for a easy way to start volunteering at St Peter's?  The Spiritual Life team is looking for volunteers to help with ushering and preparing communion for our next calendar church year which begins July 2019 and runs through June 2020.  This is a great opportunity for both people new to St. Peter's as well as those who have been attending for years.  You can help out as much as several times a month to as little as once every 6 months.  Many people do both communion prep and ushering, but several people do only ushering.  Any amount you can volunteer is helpful and appreciated! There are detailed instructions available on how to do both ushering and communion prep and training will also be available.  Please consider helping out with this important ministry.  If you are interested, please contact Kyle Kroehler at KyleKroehler@yahoo.com or 317-578-3654

Women & the Word:  will meet on Thursday, May 23rd, at 9:30 at Nan Bucksten’s home for a pitch in brunch. Nan’s address is 13754 Adios Pass, Carmel, 46032. Even if you haven’t been able to join us recently, please join us as we welcome summer. All are welcome. Please RSVP to Nan by email, nanbucksten@gmail.com, and let her know what you would like to bring.  Also, beginning on Thursday, May 30th, and though out the summer, we will meet for coffee at SoHo, 620 S Rangeline Rd, Carmel, at 10:00, to stay connected.

Carmel UMC Food Pantry Donations:  In the month of May we will be collecting protein focused easy meals such as canned ravioli, canned soup, easy Mac, cans or pouches of tuna and chicken, canned beef stew.  It is helpful to the food pantry if you make your donation in a paper bag or a reusable cloth bag instead of plastic.  We will also continue to collect "luxury items" like feminine products (pads, tampons), lotion, toothpaste, and hair conditioner. Also, anyone with garden produce can drop directly at Carmel UMC.  Contact Liz Chandler at gentlemomlc@gmail.com  for info on dropping directly to the pantry.
