House Carmel 

Courage and Boldness are as important as bread and water.  

House Carmel are improving worship in school. They are looking for Carmel volunteers so please let them know if you are willing to help.

The three main improvements that House Carmel would like to implement are:

  • To organise the worship team and inform each class about the prayers that we are studying.
  • To deliver assemblies based on different Saints.
  • To make links with our Church so that we can contribute to Collective Worship at Church.

The Story of Carmel

Mount Carmel can be found in 1 Kings. Elijah was a profit who bravely summons 450 prophets of Baal and 400 prophets of Asherah to Mount Carmel. Here he courageously challenges the prophets to prove that their God’s are real. This is why we say that House Carmel is Courageous and Bold.

Carmel in the Bible:

1 Kings 17:19-21

Elijah approached the people and said, “How long will you not decide between two choices? If the Lord is the true God, follow him, but if Baal is the true God, follow him!” But the people said nothing. Elijah said, “I am the only prophet of the LORD here, but there are 450 prophets of Baal. Bring two bulls. Let the prophets of Baal choose one bull and kill it and cut it into pieces. Then let them put the meat on the wood, but they are not to set fire to it. I will prepare the other bull, putting the meat on the wood but not setting fire to it. You prophets of Baal, pray to your God, and I will pray to the LORD. The God who answers by setting fire to the wood is the true God.

The prophets of Baal prayed to their God but nothing happened but when Elijah prayed this to God.

“Prove that you are the God of Israel and that I am your servant. Show these people that you commanded me to do all these things. Lord, answer my prayer so these people will know that you, LORD, are God and that you will change their minds.”

Then fire from the LORD came down and burned the sacrifice, the wood, the stones and the ground around the altar. It also dried up water in the ditch. When all the people saw this, they fell down to the ground, crying, “LORD is God! The LORD is God!”
