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!
If you have been craving a sweet treat, wait no longer as Girl Scout Cookie season is set to begin on February 25 at Church of the Palms.
Our Girl Scouts led by Wendy Wagner and Ainsley McNair, and assisted by Portia will be in the Narthex and the Christian Life Center on Sunday, February 25 to sell all of their delectables, from Thin Mints and Tagalongs to Samoas and S'mores.
No preordering this year but rather, instant gratification as you will be able to take cookies home that day!
The proceeds from this year's sales will go to offer scholarships for young ladies that could not otherwise be a part of the Troop, so please make plans to help support our Girl Scouts and further the developmental skills this organization is known for.
The Sisters!! invite all the women of the church to a luncheon on February 27 at 12:30 p.m. at Mi Tierrita in the Food Lion Shopping Center.
The speaker will be Erin Walker, Resource Family Coordinator from the Child Abuse Prevention Association (CAPA) headquartered in Beaufort. CAPA is one of the non-profits supported financially by the Sisters!! CAPA’s mission is to break the destructive cycle of child abuse and neglect through education for parents and the community.
Please come out and hear how your donations are being used to help protect children in the Lowcountry. Sign up in the Sign-Up Book located on the Welcome Table
Presbyterian, Lutheran, United Methodist, and A.M.E. churches in the greater Bluffton - Okatie area will gather together at noon each Wednesday, February 14 to March 25, in the season of Lent for worship and fellowship.
The final service of the series is on Wednesday, February 14, is at Lowcountry Presbyterian with the Rev. Chris Herrin welcoming guest pastor the Rev. Brian Preveaux, of St Luke's UMC.
It's almost Spring and that can only mean one thing, Vacation Bible School! And in preparation for our biggest and best one yet we are set to Host another VBS Fun Shop on March 10, 8:30 a.m. ~12:30 p.m.
If you have attended one of these event's you know how fun it is, and if you haven't you simply must come and experience a day in the life of a VBS. This is your turn to be a kid again and learn all the fun dances and songs, try your crafting skills and help us learn how to transform Church of the Palms into ancient Babylon for a week.
We always have a great turnout and let's not let this year be an exception. So again make sure you register early in order to save $20.00 and help us gauge the number of supplies needed for this great morning or fun and planning.
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!
