UPDATES: Sanctuary and Thrift Shop Re-opened.


Sunday mornings at 10:30 AM

All are welcome!

Worship services in the Sanctuary have resumed. CDC guidelines continue to be observed (see details below).


Palmetto Village Thrift has also re-opened from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM Monday through Saturday.


PLEASE NOTE:  We will continue to conduct  Sunday services on Facebook Live at 10:30 AM. Please return to the Home page for information on how to join our online worship.

CDC GUIDELINES:                                                                                                                                                                                                  

What this means to you:

  • We will require each person to have their temperature taken before entering the church. If your temperature is at or over 100 degrees F, we will ask you to go home.

  • When you enter the church, you will be given a mask, a squirt of hand sanitizer, and gloves.  You will be required to wear the mask throughout the time you spend in the church,  

We will further require you to observe the following protocols: 

  • As you enter the church,  a person will lead you to a seating area that meets CDC distancing requirements.

  • Once inside, and the service has begun, we will not join in corporate singing or corporate prayer.

  • A container will be available inside the sanctuary for you to leave tithes and offerings.        


 I thank you for your patience, and for your continued financial support for First U.M.C. Palmetto. I love you all, and continue to covet your prayers -- for the church, the ministry, and for our missions. 

In Christ alone,

Pastor Steve
