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!
Sisters Too! meet on Tuesdays from 2:30 - 3:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall.
Sisters Too! will start a new study on September 24.
There are several opportunities to participate in small group studies on Sunday mornings. Each has a stand-alone subject every week, so attend as schedules permit. Contact the study leader for a book.
