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!


Easter Cantata, April 27

robe01The Adult Chancel Choir of Church of the Palms will present Pepper Choplin's cantata "Come, Touch the Robe" on April 27 at 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m

This cantata uses the theme of Jesus' robe to highlight His many roles – of healing, of glory and authority, of humility and of victory.

Through unique music and narration this cantata tells of people who interacted with Jesus during His last days on earth.

Come experience the stories, for it is by personally encountering these touching moments that faith becomes alive.

April 27, at 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.

Sunday, May 4

The New Normal: Now What?
Luke 24:13-35

Sunday, May 4, we start a new sermon series entitled "The New Normal." Easter Sunday proclaimed that Jesus who was crucified, died, and buried, is now risen. This resurrection of Jesus has changed everything - there is no going back now.

Our greatest enemy and most powerful fear - death - has been defeated. To accept this victory of Jesus is to move from the way things have always been, to a new reality - a new normal. This new life in and through Jesus the risen Christ means that we begin the journey with a new guide, and with new rules - living by faith and not by sight.


Blessing of the Animals, May 4
