• New Year’s Day Worship

    With New Year’s Day occurring on Sunday, we will not have “The Gathering” on Saturday night, December 31. We will have one service on New Year’s Day at 10 a.m. This will be a casual, come-as-you-are service featuring Anna Marie, Lauren, and Janet providing the music and Pastor Pete sharing the message “A New Year for Shepherds and Kings.”

  • “Emmanuel (Hallowed Manger Ground)”

    The Praise Team shared a cover of “Emmanuel (Hallowed Manger Ground)” at the 8:30 a.m. worship on December 18

  • All Saints’ Remembrance

    Church of the Palms will recognize All Saints’ weekend on October 29 and 30. In preparation, the Remembrance Banner is now in the Christian Life Center gathering area. Please take time to pin a name and bell on the ribbons to remember those you remember as important in your life.

    The banner will be processed as part of each worship service on October 29 and 30. 

    Our founder, John Wesley, considered “All Saints” one of the greatest celebrations in the life of the church. “How superstitious are they who scruple giving God solemn thanks for the lives and deaths of his saints!” said Wesley in 1756. Year after year, he commented on the celebration of the saints. It was a festival he dearly loved. And so do we!

  • World Communion
    At the Sunday services on October 2, Pastor Pete and Anna Marie will lead us in an “Instructive Eucharist” at 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. The traditional parts of the Communion liturgy will be used, but explanations will be interspersed to help us understand the meaning and purpose of each section. Make plans to attend! ps. The photo is from the Altar Adoration by Brenda Berg for World Communion Sunday. Many of the dolls and figurines were loaned by members of the congregation for this special Sunday.
