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!
The Youth of Church of the Palms are focusing on the mission project of collecting funds or donations of NEW underwear and socks for the students at Okatie Elementary.
The all children sizes are needed and should be just basic white underwear and socks.
You may leave donations of underwear or socks in the box in the Narthex.
Financial donations should be made out to Church of the Palms - with "Youth Mission Project" in the memo line.
Thank you for helping our Youth help other children.
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

Did you know.... we are managers, not owners of all that God has placed in our trust? The days we live, the positions we fill, the children we nurture, the people we influence, the home we live in, the money in our accounts...all belong to God.
Of these, stewardship of our money can be the most challenging. We must remember...God does not need our money. What God wants is what that money represents – our hearts. A heart that is generous toward God and things of God is a heart that is close to God.
