Using the 10 documents that form the official doctrine of the United Methodist Church, participants will examine of what makes Church of the Palms part of the greater church universal and what makes us distrinctively United Methodist. You might be surprised just how Methodist you are!Read more...

Thank you to all who have volunteered to help with our new partnership program at Okatie Elementary. We trust that this will be a very rewarding opportunity for us, as well as the children.
Details are still being coordinated at the school, but we hope to begin in mid-October. We can always use more volunteers, either as lunch buddies, classroom helpers or after-school club assistants.
When we greet others, do we really see them or are we in such a hurry or so concerned about ourselves that we don't?
When Jesus met people, he truly saw them. He saw their needs and focused on meeting those needs.
We should strive to live and love like Jesus. Did you know... that is being faithful.
