CAMPUS CRUSADE FOR CHRIST - ERIC YEARWOOD
Eric leads a Campus Crusade for Christ Team, which is dedicated to reaching artists in New York City with the Gospel. He works with believers and he is building relationships with non-believing artists by sharing the Gospel in the arts community. The fact that he earned a Master's degree from the famed Art Insitute of Chicago enables him to train artists to use their artistic gifts to reach others for Christ.
CAMPUS CRUSADE FOR CHRIST - THE JESUS FILM PROJECT
Church of the Palms took an unprecedented step in 2013 to support a "word for word" effort by Wycliffe translators to give an "unreached people group" their first opportunity ever to meet Jesus and to hear him speak their own language through the Jesus Film. With the approval of the Session, the Jesus Film Projects was dedicated as "The Gift of Christ at Christmas."
NEWTOWN YOUTH FUND
Church of the Palms became involved with the children of Newtown in 1998. Our Newtown Youth Partner works with various organizations throughout the Newtown Community, such as the Emma E. Booker Elementary School, Booker Middle School, Brothers and Sisters Doing the Right Thing, Inc., City of Sarasota Police Department, Sarasota Sheriff's Office, Sarasota Department of Parks and North Central Library.
THE RESURRECTION HOUSE
In 1989, six downtown churches joined together to found a daytime resource for the homeless of Sarasota County. At the present time, Resurrection House is the only faith-based daytime resource center for our homeless population. Resurrection House receives no government funding.
GOOD SAMARITAN MIGRANT MISSION
Rev. William Cruz
The Rev. William Cruz was one of the guest speakers during the 2014 Mini-Mission Expo here at Church of the Palms. The Good Samaritan Migrant Mission statement makes it clear that "through knowledge, we inspire the community to find physical, emotional and spiritual healing." Many of you may already know that Dr. Douglas Perry was a founding member of this mission to a largely Hispanic migrant community.
SAMARITAN COUNSELING SERVICES OF THE GULF COAST
The administrative offices and three clinical offices of Samaritan Counseling Services of the Gulf Coast are housed on the campus of Samaritan's founding church, Church of the Palms, which particpates in a variety of ways to enable the service to accomplish its mission: "Strengthening individuals and families through Professional Christian Counseling."
2014 MINI MISSIONS EXPO
How We Reach People For Christ
In odd years a big tent is set up to welcome as many as possible of COP's Mission Partners, its Mission Partner Advocates and members of the congregation and their guests. Displays are outstanding. In even years such as 2014, a smaller effort is planned so the COP members can expect to enjoy meeting and talking with a goodly number of Partners and Advocates in several well-planned events.
CROP HUNGER WALK
Ending Hunger One Step at a Time
Early each March, Church of the Palms joins about twenty local congregations banding together in this effort to alleviate hunger around the world. Twenty-five percent of the funds raised in Sarasota go to our local All Faiths Food Bank. This is a major community service project of our new confirmands and their mentors.
HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
Church of the Palms joined with Habitat for Humanity International in 2002. The Mission Statement of Habitat-Sarasota proclaims its "desire to partner with God and community to provide decent, affordable housing for people in need so they may build better lives for their families." Volunteers provide about 90 percent of the labor in constructing or rehabbing a home.
