Welcome to the website of Church of the Palms, a part of the United Methodist Church, where we believe a life connected to God, and a life connected to one another, is the most meaningful life there is!
The Bell Campaign is underway and 2 more bells have been purchased. That leaves 34 more opportunities for you to honor or memorialize a special person in your life! Watch for continued updates!
It is exciting to know that people are also excited about having a Bell Choir! Although each bell costs $285, which includes a personalized inscription, any donation will be greatly appreciated towards the Bell Campaign.
Contact Norma Brown with questions.
Come join your friends and neighbors as Lowcountry Presbyterian, Campbell Chapel A.M.E., and Church of the Palms UM, gather together in a Thanksgiving worship service on Tuesday, November 20, at 7 p.m.
This simple but sincere service will include common hymns, an anthem by the combined choirs of all four churches, moments of reflection and testimonies by the laity of each congregation, focused on gratitude and an opportunity to give thanks to our common God.
Portia Foden will speak on behalf of Church of the Palms. A time of fellowship will follow the service.
The service will be held in the sanctuary of Lowcountry Presbyterian located at 10 Simmonsville Rd in Bluffton.
The Church office will be closed Thanksgiving Day and Friday, November 22-23.
You may reach Pastor Pete on his cell phone - 843-694-7447.
The people of The United Methodist Church are serving the people God loves in Jesus’ name. Right now there are UMC young people—who might not have had the resources to attend a school of their choice, or, for some, any school at all—who’ve been sent by you into the world God loves because of your giving to United Methodist Student Day.
Thanks to your generosity Zillah Faith Jombe is the first recipient of the Church of the Palms Scholarship fund. She begins her education at Africa University, one of our “Cornerstone Missions”, this academic year.
When you support United Methodist Student Day, you make it possible for more students like Zillah to serve the world God loves. Please use the envelope in your bulletin to make a donation, make checks payable to Church of the Palms and write “student day” in the memo line. What no one person or congregation can do alone, we’re doing together.
Due to Thanksgiving, there will be NO SISTERS!! on Wednesday, November 21.
We will resume on Wednesday, November 28, at John 13:31 at 8:30 a.m.
Did you miss Commitment Sunday, November 4?
This is the time we offer to God our commitments to support this Church with our prayers, presences, gifts, service, and witness. It is our formal way of being part of the work God is doing in and through Church of the Palms.
To God be the Glory!
Is Christmas a “blue” time for you? Stephen Ministry at Lord of Life Lutheran Church is offering a quiet, simple service on Monday, December 3, at 6:30 p.m. With Stephen Ministers from other congregations, including Church of the Palms, this service offers time to reflect and remember in a calming candlelit space.
Perhaps you, or someone you know, is aware “this Christmas will be a hard one” either because of the death of a loved one, loss or broken relationship or because of painful memories of Christmases past. Many individuals experience pain and sadness as the holidays approach. This service intends to encourage people to move toward hope.
All are welcome to come and share. Feel free to invite any friends or neighbors to join us. Lord of Life Lutheran Church is located at 351 Buckwalter Parkway, Bluffton, SC 843-757-4774
