Welcome to Church of the Palms

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!


Godspeed to the Millers

miller01It is with profound sadness and regret that we share that Betty and Rev. Dr. Glenn Miller are moving to North Carolina to be closer to family.

Their last Sunday with us at Church of the Palms was Sunday, June 28. Unfortunately we did not know in time to offer them a traditional Church of the Palms send-off.

Betty has served this community faithfully as the Director of Caring Neighbors. Rev. Miller has taught at OLLI and served as interim pastor at Church of the Palms prior to the appointment of Pastor Pete. It is often noted that Glenn was the force that kept Church of the Palms going - during and through - some dark times in its history. We will be forever grateful.

We wish them Godspeed as they enter this new chapter of life and send them with our love.


Congratulations to BSA Troop 213

Sunday, July 5

freed01Weekly Reflections: July 5
Freed By The Spirit: Now Free To Proclaim!
Mark 6:1-13; 1 Peter 3:13-17

Our sermon series "Freed By The Spirit" draws to a close this Sunday as our focus is "Now Free To Proclaim!" Two scripture passages, Mark 6:1-13 and 1 Peter 3:13-17 will help guide us. These texts talk of instances when the sharing by someone of a message from God made an impression.

The listeners knew a "prophet" or spokesperson for God had been in the house. The pericope from 1 Peter urges us to always be ready at any time to share the reason for the hope we have within us.

It is by the power of the Holy Spirit that we too have the opportunity, and responsibility, to proclaim in our words the Good New of Jesus the Christ in this time of history and in this place on the map. It is a freedom that we have by the power of the Holy Spirit and one of the most valuable freedoms we enjoy as Americans.

Come worship with us at 10:30 a.m. this Sunday. Our time of worship will include sharing in the Sacrament of Holy Communion.

Rail Offerings

railofferring01Here at Church of the Palms we carry on the practice from early years of the Christian church when people were encouraged to bring "offerings for the poor" to their celebration of the Lord's Supper.

Such monetary gifts offered, and then left on the communion railing (often referred to as a "rail offering"), are placed in a special fund for use in providing assistance to those in the community, as well as those in our own congregation facing extra-ordinary financial challenges.
