Worship with The Palms

in-person and online

In-person worship services

sanctuary at Church of the Palms UCC Sun City

We hold worship services in our sanctuary every Sunday at 10 am.

In-person service protocols: With the spike in cases of Covid, we are implementing new guidelines for our worship services.

  • Only come if you are vaccinated and boosted
  • Wear an N95 mask at all times  If you don’t have one, we will gladly give you one
  • Social (holy) distance
  • Do not socialize within the building (use the patio or parking lot areas)

We will adjust these as needed when the CDC advises.

If you feel ill, please do not come to worship. If you feel it is still unsafe to attend, you will get no negative judgment—we trust you to make the best decision for your family’s health. We support your decision.

We’re located at 14808 N Boswell Blvd, Sun City, AZ 85351.
