The Church of the Palms UCC decided in January 2020 to explore certification as a W.I.S.E. congregation for mental health under the guidelines of the UCC General Synod. The UCC General Synod voted in 2015 to overwhelmingly adopt a resolution to develop a network of churches that are welcoming, inclusive, supportive and engaged (W.I.S.E.) for mental health.
The Palms remains committed to the whole person: all of their life experiences, joys, concerns, sorrows. We offer the following resources:
