Serve Sunday


Serve Sunday


On the morning of a Serve Sunday, after the 10 AM service, 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.


Join with fellow Palmers in serving our neighbors together February 19! (Note: Serve Sunday activities will take place after the combined 10am worship service).
