Services and Building Use

At the Church of the Palms we are not just a church.  We have wonderful spaces and a beautiful garden availble to choose from for those special events and occasions of life.  We are sure we will have something for you that will make your event special. Our facilities are equipped with WiFi and are handicap accessible.  Please continue reading about the variety of services and spaces available and then scroll down for photos and seating capacities of our facilities.  You will be able to contact us about our facilities at the bottom of the page!


Sunday worship begins at 10am in our beautiful and bright sanctuary.  The service is non-credal, musical, and hopefully speaks to your mind, body, and soul.  A time of refreshment and conversation follows each service. Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of every month and is open to all without exception.


Baptisms are usually performed during a Sunday morning service for children or adults.  We baptize in a Trinitarian formula and your baptism is recognized by the vast majority of Christian denominations.  Conversations with the pastor are necessary before a date for baptism is confirmed.


Standard membership is for those who make this region their home; "Shared" membershp is for those holding membership in another congregation (of any denomination).  Contact our Pastor for more information.


We invite non-members to use our sanctuary and pastor for your wedding.  You may also bring in a minister upon approval of our pastor.  We also have a beautiful garden that makes a glorious setting for photographs or for the ceremony.  At least six months notice for weddings is encouraged. To request wedding information and fees please contact our office.


Our Sanctuary is available for non-member funerals and memorials using our minister or another of your choice (with approval of our minister).  Additional facilities are availble for receptions following the service.  For information and fee schedule please contact our office.


We make our buildings available for public use for concerts, plays, speakers, workshops, potlucks, family celebrations and meetings.  Contact our office for details including calendar availability and building use fees/policies.
