Access to the church campus will be blocked starting Sunday evening, July 29, through Tuesday morning, July 31, while the entrance and parking lot asphalt are resealed. (Note the 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.
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 FAN committee enjoyed bringing you the fresh taste of Summer this past Sunday. We hope you enjoyed it and took a few minutes to view our informational display of healthy eating. Keep watching for more FAN activities and events coming soon.
With the PAR course completion and the fall season just around the corner, we look forward to gathering for "Sneaker Sunday". Thanks to Joseph Whiteaker and all those bringing the PAR course to fruition.

God" ~ 1 Corinthians 10:31
Save the Date!
Preliminary plans are underway for a Church of the Palms pilgrimage to the Holy Land!
The proposed dates are September 14-22 of 2019. Details on the cost and the itinerary are still being gathered.
If you have an interest in this pilgrimage, please let Sandie Gies or Pastor Pete know so that you may receive updates as they are obtained.
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!
