Glyndon has been under care of our Session as a candidate for ministry. Glyndon started serving his new congregregation on January 11 and while we will miss him, we congratulate him on receiving this call and also congratulate his new congregation on choosing a great new pastor!

Winter Worship at Palo Cristi

Christmas has come and gone and we are into a new year of worship, service, and praise at Palo Cristi. Join us each Sunday at 9:30 am for Songs of Praise led by our Music Director, Ted Gibson, as we proceed to explore what God has to say to us through God's Word, Music, and our time together.
It may be a little chilly some Sundays as we gather on the patio for fellowship after worship each Sunday, but a warm cup of coffee and an even warmer greeting is a high part in the week of many of our members and guests. Lent and the Easter Season will be here before we know it!
