We are an open, inclusive, and affirming More-Light Presbyterian congregation seeking to embody the radical, unconditional hospitality and love of God to whoever enters our doors.
All are invited to worship: seekers, the spiritual but not religious, believers, non-believers, and the uncategorized! We invite you to “come and see.” Come to Palisades and see if this sacred place is a faith community in which you can be nourished and challenged in your spiritual life.
We need help
Please prayerfully consider how you can best serve our congregation. As the demographic of our church is changing it is clear that we need the work of the whole body of this faith community. 1 Corinthians says: "Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of working but it is the same God who inspires them all in every one. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.(12:4-8)
What gifts do you have that you can share with the church? Please take some time to download and fill out this Time and Talent Survey and either mail it back to the church, leave in the box in the choir room or place it in the offering plate. Surveys are also available on the website and in the Parish House. If you have any questions, please speak to Angela or Kim.
