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!
On October 19, Laity Sunday, Pastor Pete Berntson shared the message "Giving God Thanks For YOU!" based on the opening to the book of 1 Thessalonians. Listen now as Toni Wald reads 1 Thessalonians 1:1-10, followed by Pastor Pete's message.

On behalf of your Board of Trustees and Pastor Pete, we truly want you thank each and every one that came out this Saturday morning to help make OUR church's grounds look absolutely resplendent with all the new pine straw, minus the weeds, thinning of the over growth and the cleaning out of the ditches along our frontage.
This was all made possible by many of our members, friends of the church, and scouts and their leaders, all of which who care enough about COTP to come out and make a positive difference. You did and it shows.
Bill Taylor, Trustee

The Brothers! will meet Thursday, October 23, at 8 a.m. to continue their study of 1 Corinthians at chpter 3, verse 1.
First Corinthians is one of the gems of Christian literature. It is one of the 7-9 books in the New Testament that most scholars agree was written by Apostle Paul.
When the people in Corinth received this letter, it probably made them angry. That is because this letter deals with problems in the Corinthian church and some of those same people were the source of the problems. This not unlike our situation today. As we study this book, we will discover their problems are still with us today - either as exact copies or in modern equivalents!Read more...
