Palm Lutheran Church 11 West Cherry Street Palmyra, PA 17078
CaregiversCaregivers meet once a month for lunch with the purpose of sharing and supporting one another.All members are in a caregiving role with a spouse, child, parent or good friend. The group shares scripture, readings and prayers as avenues to draw them closer to each other and to the Lord. Enjoying good conversation and Christian fellowship one hour a month provides much needed respite from responsibilities. If you are a caregiver, please join us.
Casserole BankThis group comes together to prepare meals that are frozen for future deliveries. The meals are delivered to church members who are recovering from illness or injury, welcoming a new baby, or to anyone who is temporarily unable to cook for themselves. Some members prepare meals; others are called on to deliver the meals; some members do both.
Social MinistryThis active group of women and men provide noon meals in cooperation with LCCM in Lebanon, prepare food packages at Easter for families in Lebanon county, send care packages to our college freshmen, and coordinate Palm’s Little Angels Project, hurricane relief efforts, health and sewing kits, and Thanksgiving packages for those in need in Palmyra.
Shawl MinistryThis ministry knits and crochets prayer shawls to share the love of God; to comfort people during illness, surgery, grieving or other circumstances when they need a bit of love and support. The purpose is to let the recipients know they are loved and cared about through the shawls they receive. Open to all who knit or crochet whether or not they are members of Palm.
Sewing GroupPalm’s Sewing Group makes blankets for Lutheran World Relief using donated materials. The Social Ministry collects the blankets every October to be shipped to third world countries. The “knot & tie” method used in making the blankets requires no previous skills.
Palm QuiltersOur quilters’ primary purpose is to create baby quilts for baptisms at Palm Lutheran. However, the group extends beyond baby quilts and beyond Palm Lutheran membership. Members create quilts of varied size and design for individuals and organizations to auction as fund raisers as requested.
