sanctuary at Church of the Palms UCC Sun City


(Watch our online worship services HERE.)

We will continue to be on a healthy hiatus through the end of January. That is, Pastor Paul and Pastor Jim will continue to lead worship in video format. Our sanctuary will be open on Sundays from 9am to 11am. There is no programming. You can come and pray, light a candle, read, partake in communion, and have personal prayer time with a pastor. Please wear a mask. We limit this to 10 or fewer persons at a time.

Make sure you check out our website for opportunities to connect with groups, boards, and classes. You’ll find that by clicking Bridges on the left-hand panel of our website.

Worship Themes for January

Pastors Jim and Paul will be filming worship throughout January.

January 3: Pastor Paul will be giving a fireside chat from his home. Read John 1:1-18. One of his top-ten lists just might make an appearance.

January 10: Mark 1:4-11 and Genesis 1 are our themes. God sends a blessing to us – even before we have done anything. Pastor Paul will be preaching.

January 17: Pastor Jim will be preaching on Psalm 139:1-6 and 13-18. God knows every fiber of our being. We can begin a new year with renewed strength because God goes before us, behind us, and beside us.

January 24: Have you ever tried to run from God? Jonah sure did and he ended up on a beach covered in whale…well…you know. In all likelihood, we all know. Pastor Paul will be focusing on Jonah 3:1-5, 10. But, read the whole book – it’s short (unlike Pastor Paul’s sermon!)

January 31: Pastors Jim and Paul will be doing something a little different today. Read Mark 1:21-28.
