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!
August 30 will be our next sewing day for Koinonia Kaps. Come and bring a friend. Linda has another sewing machine that needs an operator! Mark your calendar now and come in from the heat to help us make caps for cancer patients who have lost their hair.
Although it still feels like Summer, Fall is right around the corner and that means The Pumpkins Are Coming...
So, please make plans to attend our first 2016 Pumpkin Patch Meeting on August 31 at 6:30 p.m. Please contact Portia for more Pumpkin Patch Information.
Brothers Too!, an early Saturday morning breakfast and Bible study with Pastor Pete, continues a study of Ecclesiastics on September 10 at Ecclesiastics 7:13

Please consider serving the ministry of Family Promise as we provide shelter to homeless families.
Family Promise is an interfaith non-profit organization committed to helping homeless families achieve lasting independence. We are the link for those in need as we offer them hospitality here at Church of the Palms.
Consider providing food, supplies, or spending an evening and overnight with these guests. Click on the link goo.gl/307YNd to sign up ways to help during our second Family Promise Week, September 25 -October 2.
The Royal Chimers and Chancel Choir have resumed practice but it's not too late to join us! Anyone interested in playing chimes or singing in the choir is welcome.
Christmas Cantata books and CDs are available now for those interested in singing in the Cantata.
On Sunday, September 11, our congregation will stand with Epworth to break the cycle of abuse, neglect, and shame through our collection of the Annual Epworth Work Day Offering.
Epworth Children's Home goes above and beyond just food and shelter for children by providing tutoring, counseling, health care, fun activities, and the spiritual formation they need to heal and gain a sense of belonging.
For more information, visit www.epworthchildrenshome.org.
We all need and ask for payer at various times and we know the power of prayer is awesome!
On non-communion Sundays we have the Laying on of Hands for Pastor Pete where you have the wonderful opportunity to go forward and pray silently for Pastor as he prepares to deliver his message.
You do not need to be asked - let the spirit of our Lord guide you - you will be blessed!

Additional responds to our Forward in Faith Capital Campaign continue to come in.
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.
Join us as we continue "Forward in Faith."
