MINISTRIES  OF OUR CHURCH

CHILDREN & YOUTH MINISTRY

Children of all ages are welcome at the Church of the Palms!  In worship, education and special events, we learn about the life of Jesus and the Bible, while often digging into some songs and arts & crafts.

MUSIC MINISTRY

Music is important to the worship life at Church of the Palms.  Weekly, we are inspired by the sounds from our lovely pipe organ and grand piano.  Guest soloists and instrumentalists - along with an occasional church choir - grace our services.  If you would like to sing in the choir or if you would like to provide special music based on your musical skill set, please speak to our Organist and Director of Music, Dr. Kirsten Hellman.

 

MISSION 

MINISTRY

 

As part of our visioning process, Church of the Palms is committed to being a more mission-oriented congregation.

 

Currently, we provide volunteers for the Homeless Shower Truck and Healthy Helping Hands (H3).  To learn more about these volunteer opportunities, please speak with or email our pastor at:  pett.todd@gmail.com.

 

Representatives from Church of the Palms sit on two important and active committees in Delray Beach:  (1) The Interfaith Committee on Social Services and (2) The Delray Beach Homeless Initiative Taskforce.  Both do vitally important work.  We are proud to support both organizations with COTP representatives.

 

 

REEL THEOLOGY

 

Several Reel Theology opportunities are offered throughout the year.  Members and friends gather to watch movies with religious/theological undertones.  After the movie, there's a guided discussion time followed by food and fellowship.  Reel Theology takes place in member/friends homes.

WEEKLY MINISTRIES

FAITH FORMATION


Children and Youth head off to classes after the Children's Moment in Worship.  Through age appropriate learning and discussion, they deepen their faith as they learn our "story" and then apply our "story" to real life.

ADULT EDUCATION

 

Various adult education opportunities happen throughout the year.  They range from Bible Study to lectures about Theology, Church History, Church in the World, etc.

 

PRAYER CIRCLE


Each week, people gather with the pastor and form an important prayer circle.  Currently, we are exploring Robert Foster's book on prayer.  After discussing a chapter in the book each week, we share joys and concerns and engage in earnest prayer.  It's a powerful experience for all who gather.
