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!
Through voice, testimony, and intriguing guitar work, Tim Malchak blessed those in attendance Sunday night. Tim shared some of the cuts from his newly released CD among some of his other original songs. The attendees enjoyed joining in "Hallelujah" and a closing medley of favorite hymns.
A special thanks to the Brothers! for the delicious salad bar supper before the concert.
The Sisters!! Wednesday morning breakfast and Bible study will continue their study of the Gospel according to John on June 26, resuming at John 5:12. This will be a continuing of the inquiring story of the woman at the well. Portia Foden will be leading the study this week.
The Sisters!! gather at 8:30 a.m. for a light breakfast and then engage in a Bible study, led by Pastor Pete, from 9 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.
Come join this group as often as you can and enjoy the fellowship and discussion.
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!
