The Brothers! Thursday morning breakfast and Bible study continue their study of Jeremiah on Thursday, July 6 (no Brothers, June 29 due to Family Promise), at Jeremiah 22:13. Breakfast starts at 8 a..m. with the study starting at 8:30 a.m. and concluding by 9 a.m.
The second of the major prophets, the book of Jeremiah is a challenge to conscience and a comfort to the wounded in body and spirit. The book addresses the destruction of Judah and the capital Jerusalem by Babylon’s armies but also strives to move beyond this historical milestone to a new future.
The book of Jeremiah seeks to defend God from charges of being unjust, uncaring, or unable to protect God’s people. Instead the responsibility of the people and their failure to “listen” is brought front and center.
Come join the Brothers! each Thursday morning, with breakfast from 8 a.m. - 8:30 a.m. and a study of Jeremiah from 8:30 a.m. - 9 a.m.
Additional details on The Brothers! available online.
Come join the Brothers Too! Saturday morning breakfast and Bible study as they continue their study of Titus, James, and Jude - the three Amigos!
Breakfast starts at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 11, with the study starting at 8 a.m. and finishing at 8:30 a.m. The books will be taken verse by verse. The group will start with James 5:13 on July 8 (no Brothers Too! on July 1 due to family Promise), so jump in whenever your schedule permits. Brothers Too! meets every other Saturday at Church of the Palms.

Here at Church of the Palms we carry on the practice from early years of the Christian church when people were encouraged to bring "offerings for the poor" to their celebration of the Lord's Supper.
Such monetary gifts offered, and then left on the communion railing (often referred to as a "rail offering"), are placed in a special fund for use in providing assistance to those in the community, as well as those in our own congregation facing extraordinary financial challenges.
