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!
Listen as on Sunday, January 15, Pastor Pete, along with Associate Lay Leader David Voyles, Associate Lay Leader Candy Grose, and Lay Leader Larry Sanders shared the message “The Start of Justice: Truth-Telling.” First listen as Gary Gehlhoff reads John 1:29-42.
All of our messages are also available on iTunes.
Brothers Too! continue their study the Book of Ruth on January 28, at Ruth 2:5. Led by Pastor Pete, Brothers Too! meets every other Saturday for breakfast from 7:30 a.m. to 8 a.m. and then join in a Bible study from 8 a.m. - 8:30 a.m.
The book of Ruth is a love story, yet also has some important genealogy. The timeline of this book is intertwined during the period of the Judges. Key personalities include Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz.
Its purpose was to demonstrate the kind of love, and faithfulness that God desires for us. It shows the difference between what happens when a nation does not follow in obedience to the covenant of God (Judges), and when God’s people follow in faithfulness within the covenant (Ruth).

God is doing great things in, through, and around Church of the Palms and EVERYONE has an opportunity to be part of it all.
Any size of sacrificial gift to the Forward in Faith Capital Campaign is a way of joining the vision God has for us as a church. The act of making a commitment is a way of being “all in” and placing trust in God.
Are you “all in?” It is not too late for you to be part of this aspect of Vision 2020. You may download a card here and simply return it to the church office.
