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!
Join Pastor Pete on Sunday mornings at 10 a.m. in Room 103 to discuss “Methodism 201.” Over a period of six weeks, our discussion will cover details of the United Methodist Church, our history, our theology and doctrine, our polity, and our discipline.
There will be adequate time to cover your specific questions and topics of interest to you regarding “Methodism.”
No need to sign up, just come to Room 103 in the Christian Life Center, now through June 3 at 10 a.m.
You might be surprised just how Methodist you are (or not!)
More than 600 young women and men from 24 African countries are due to graduate from Africa University in June. The university’s 24th graduation ceremony takes place on June 9th at the main campus in Mutare, Zimbabwe.
The class of 2018 includes a significant number of scholarship recipients—orphans, refugees, and young people who come from conflict zones in Africa.
Africa University is one of our “Cornerstone Missions” and the generosity of our church has provided scholarship funds for the academic year of 2018-2019.
The Development Office of AU is requesting a student proficient in English to be selected for this award in August 2018 to facilitate communication with our church. We will look forward to hearing from, and following, the progress of this student.
Koinonia Kap sewers will meet on Tuesday, May 22, in Room 106 to sew cancer caps. We start at 9 a.m and go until 2 p.m. If you can't stay the whole time, we would love to have you for whatever time you can give us.
You do not have to know how to sew as we have other jobs such as cutting, pinning, turnings, ironing, and putting the caps into bags for delivery.
If you are staying all day, don't forget your lunch and a drink! Hope to see more new faces!
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!
