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 and Boynton Beach Congregational Church.  Weekly, we are inspired by the sounds from our lovely pipe organ and grand piano.  Guest soloists and instrumentalists - along with our church choir (winter season) - 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 email the church and you will be put in touch with Joanne Nelson, Organist and Director of Music for Church of the Palms.

MISSION 

MINISTRY

 

 

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

 

Various hands-on mission opportunities are available throughout the year.

 

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.

 

Additionally, we partner with and support the Loving God Orphangae in Gonaives, Haiti as well as college students in Venant, Haiti.

 

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.




WOMEN'S

MINISTRY


Women's Fellowship is a group for all women of the church and community who meet together and have open discussions, mission projects, and opportunities to support the church.  Regular meetings are announced in the weekly newsletter.



MEN'S

MINISTRY


Men's Fellowship is a ministry for the men of the church.  


They gather for companionship, conversation and projects.  We would love for you to visit us and see what it's all about.  The weekly newsletter will announce various opportunities for the men of COTP.

WEEKLY MINISTRIES
