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!
Access to the church campus will be blocked starting Sunday evening, August 19, through Tuesday morning, August 21, while the entrance and parking lot asphalt are resealed. (Note another change in date due to weather!)
Meetings and ministries normally occurring during this time have been canceled and there will be no access to the campus.
- NO DREAM TEAM meeting Sunday, August 19, at 5 p.m.
Staff will be working remotely so emails and texts will be received, but phone calls to the church building will not be able to be answered.
Thank you for your understanding during this maintenance project.
The Church of the Palms pilgrimage website is now open at Israel2019.
In addition, an information sheet is available for viewing here contains the details. Note the prices are still not fixed, but these figures may be helpful for those planning or discerning whether to commit or not to this wonderful experience.
Do you know that the Church of the Palms website automatically adjusts to fit the device on which it is being viewed? This means it works well with smartphones and tablets.
You can also place a COTP icon on the homepage of your iPhone that acts just like an app icon. A single tap of the new icon will launch Safari and take you right to the web page.
(Watch for similar steps for Android smartphones!)
We all need and ask for payer at various times and we know the power of prayer is awesome!
On non-communion Sundays we have the Laying on of Hands for Pastor Pete where you have the wonderful opportunity to go forward and pray silently for Pastor as he prepares to deliver his message.
You do not need to be asked - let the spirit of our Lord guide you - you will be blessed!
