Helping People To
Learn, Live, Love and Serve
"By the grace of Jesus Christ, we are called to worship God; to connect in community, to nurture in love and to serve in the world."
The Nurture Ministry helps all people learn, live, love and serve in the way of Jesus.
At Palms, we all are on a journey of faith. We want to live with and for God, and the Nurture Ministry offers opportunities to deepen, wrestle with, and engage our faith. Christian Education has long been a cornerstone of the church. However, it’s not about becoming “smarter” Christians, or even about Sunday school, but growing into disciples who live our faith on a daily basis.
Following Jesus is a journey of a lifetime, and so we have programs and events for all ages, on different days of the week, and at many different times. There are many ways to get involved in Nurture, but no one can do it alone. Join the Palms community as we learn, live, love and serve in the way of Jesus.
Nursery - 3rd
Within the larger Oasis, you will find Palms Kids Oasis, nurturing children and families in the discovery of the love and joy of Jesus Christ throughout our community.
Can faith be made real to a child? Can a four-year-old minister to others? Can a third grader understand scripture? At Palms Presbyterian Church, the answer is a resounding “Yes”. The Kids Oasis Ministry Team focuses on creating a place of belonging, where children are called by name, where discipleship and a love of God and neighbor are nurtured. Beginning with birth and baptism, we take each child seriously, teaching them and loving them as a beloved member of the household of God
4th and 5th graders make connections between the stories of the Old and New Testaments, between the people of God and themselves, between themselves and God, and between themselves and others bringing understanding and meaning to the Bible stories they have learned over the years.
