Palm Lutheran Church 11 West Cherry Street Palmyra, PA 17078
WELCOME TO PALM. COME FORGE THE FUTURE.
Palm is a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Our congregation is a part of 271 churches of the Lower Susquehanna Synod of the ELCA with offices in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Our first goal is to serve all who join with us in worship in a ministry of hospitality. Our welcome is open to all who seek to experience God’s presence in their lives and who find Christ as the Good Shepherd in this journey.
We welcome persons from any or no church background to worship with us and to join in all of our activities. There are several ways to join our congregation. If you are an active member of a Lutheran congregation you may transfer your membership from another congregation by contacting them and requesting a transfer. If you have a membership in another Christian denomination, you may request the same, although practices vary among denominations as to how this request is handled.
If you have no previous church affiliation, simply contact Pastor Merkel or the church office to express your interest.
We offer short introductory sessions for new members to acquaint you to our ministries and opportunities for service. If anyone is interested in a more comprehensive exploration of our faith and Christian tradition, we offer Adult Catechism which covers the basic history of the Christian faith and the Lutheran tradition. If you have questions or simply wish to have a conversation, feel free to contact the church office using the form below or by telephone at 717-838-3311.
