Welcome to the Palma Ceia Presbyterian Church! I hope you will find this congregation to be the warm and gracious fellowship I know it to be. A truly intergenerational family gathers here. We worship God, work together in a ministry of care and compassion, grow together in Christian education, and support each other in love and fellowship. I pray that, like so many others, you might find a church home here, with all the nurture and opportunity that should be a part of your Christian life.
This church has a fine history with roots that go back over 90 years in Tampa’s past. Sometimes we have four generations seated in the same pew! We are a member of the PC(USA) denomination, the largest group of Presbyterians in the United States. We are especially interested in new members, and over 1/4 of us have been here less than ten years. We believe God blesses us by bringing us the gifts, insights, and help of new members. People from a variety of traditions have felt comfortable here. I believe you will find our worship services thoughtful, nurturing, and inspirational. Th is congregation is seeking to follow the Lord Jesus Christ. We are trying faithfully to be his disciples and active agents of God’s love in Tampa and the world.
If you would like to meet with a pastor or a member of the staff or congregation to discuss this church and its programs, history and character, email Diane King at Diane@palmaceia.org to arrange a time for conversation with one of us. Or come to a Wednesday Night Dinner and join some of the members at a dinner table, and enter into the conversation which so characteristically marks our fellowship of faith and friendship here. We are glad to have folks present with us as visitors, regular friends, and members.
In Christian Fellowship,
Pastor John DeBevoise
