MEMBERSHIP AT PALMS
A faithful member bears witness to God’s love and grace and promises to be involved responsibly in the ministry of Christ’s Church (Book of Order, G-1.0304).
We understand the church to be the body of Christ: a collection of people with different gifts and abilities who share a common faith and are committed to doing the work that God has called us to in Christ.
We welcome all into the life of our community of faith regardless of age, gender, race, ability, belief or even membership status. We understand the church to exist for the benefit of the world, and not the other way around. We are called to serve all people and to welcome all people.
If you have a desire to be an official member of Palms, you may indicate your desire on the connection pad located at the end of the church pew, speak to a pastor, contact the church office at 904-246-6427, or email us. You may also download the new member form below and submit it to the church office.
Those interested in becoming members will attend a new member class which occurs periodically throughout the year. After completing the class, you will be invited to meet with the Session, the governing board of the church, and profess your faith in Jesus Christ. The final step in the membership process is to be introduced to the congregation at a worship service. We look forward to welcoming you to Palms in whatever way you want to be involved!
