Welcome to Palm West Community Church!

Come visit us this Sunday!

We are a vibrant senior adult congregation united by faith in God and a desire to become more like Jesus Christ. We believe that everyone is created to have a deep and lasting relationship with God who poured out His love for us. God made everything possible through His Son Jesus Christ. We come from all walks of life, all traditions and backgrounds but as one congregation seeking to know, to love and to serve Jesus Christ. We seek to live out Hebrews 13:20-21:

Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, …equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.

The Sunday Morning Bible Class meets at 9:00 a.m. in the Hoover Hall Classroom, during the fall through spring months

Our Hope: 

We aspire to be known as the People Who Care Church” and “A Spiritual Oasis in the Desert.”

Our Calling: 

We seek to be the “people of God, doing the work of God, through the power of God.” (see Romans 12:10-13)
