Serve Sunday


Save The Date for Serve Sunday, June 2, 2024! Plan to join with fellow Palmers serving our neighbors with on campus projects at 9 AM !

On the morning of a Serve Sunday we will be commissioned and sent out in the world around us to serve and to listen to our neighbors. There will be a variety of opportunities for service that parishioners will be invited to sign up for ahead of time. There will also be an opportunity to serve for families with young children and those with limited mobility. The invitation is really to be the church in the neighborhoods beyond our walls.
