At the heart of Palmer Memorial Episcopal Church is a dynamic faith community of children, youth, and adults. Our formation offerings aim to foster God’s love in an affirming, grace-oriented, and mission-focused setting.
Adult offerings take place Sundays at 12:30 PM on Zoom. There will also be synchronous and asynchronous offerings for children and youth. And of course, we will continue to provide a vibrant and robust selection of Bible studies and meditation opportunities.
We are incredibly excited about our Great Wednesday program. This past year, we had the chance to hear from Dr. Catherine Meeks of the Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing, theologian Miroslav Volf, The Most Reverend Michael B, Curry, and Dr. Brené Brown. Stay tuned for information on our 2021 speakers. As always, please read The Palmer to stay up-to-date.
For more information, please contact Roger Hutchison, Palmer's Director of Christian Formation and Parish Life.

- Read, Mark, Learn - Each Sunday, the Revised Common Lectionary (a resource shared among many denominations) assigns four readings from scripture to be used in common worship. While a preacher draws on one (or all) of those readings, there is always more to explore than the sermon can cover. This discussion, facilitated by Palmer clergy, provides a chance to slow down, dig in, and explore scripture in community. Wherever you fall from biblical scholar to novice student, there is something for your soul here.
- This Is Us meets on Sunday mornings at 12:30 PM via Zoom. This class is built for the curious: people who are new to the Episcopal Church, new to Palmer, interested in baptism or confirmation, or simply eager to pray and study. Contact The Rev. Liz Parker at or Jim Rosenbach at for more information.
