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!


The Brothers! April 17

philippians01The Brothers! continue their study of the Gospel according to John at John 19:8 as they gather on April 17 at 8 a.m.

The Gospel of John is the latest-written of the four accounts of Jesus preserved in the New Testament.

John's account is organized into two major parts that together describe the ministry of Jesus. The first twelve chapters describe Jesus' public ministry. Beginning with his encounter with John the Baptist it ends with the visit of the Greeks who came to worship at the Feast of Passover.

Tenebrae in the Round

Gathered around the Crucifix lit with flickering candles we will experience the sacrifice and agony of Jesus as he gave up his life on the cross.

His words from the cross will combine with music and fading light as we are moved into somber remembrance and reflection.

Prayer Vigil, April 18-19

    "An Unexpected Ending"

    Come Easter Sunday morning, The Feast of the Resurrection of the Lord, to celebrate the resurrection of Christ.

    Come rejoice with churches throughout the world that Christ is risen, risen indeed, just as he said. Pastor Pete will share the message "An Unexpected Ending" based on John 20:1-18. It is a message of hope and God's relentless love for you.

    Our service will include the Sacrament of Holy Communion and special music by Richard Hoff and the Adult Chancel Choir.

    Bring a small bunch of flowers to adorn the Flower Cross. Bill Griffin will be taking family photographs beside the Flower Cross.

    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.
