Lakeside Chautauqua is pleased to welcome Bishop Gregory V. Palmer, resident bishop of the West Ohio Conference of the United Methodist Church (UMC), to lead the 10:30 a.m. Hoover Community Worship Service on Sunday, Sept. 1.

His sermon, titled "Christian Hospitality," is based on Hebrews 132:1-18; 15:16; and Luke 14:1,7-14. The church is always on the journey of being a community of genuine Christ like hospitality. That journey involves wrestling with what it means to be both a good guest and a generous host. As always, Jesus has an idea or two to guide us on this journey.

Born and raised in Phila­delphia, Bishop Palmer is “a child of the church,” the son of the Rev. Herbert E. and Charlotte Sue Hewitt Palmer. His father is a retired United Methodist pastor.

Bishop Palmer received his undergraduate degree from George Washington University in Washington, D.C. and a Master of Divinity degree from Duke University Divinity School.

Baldwin Wallace Univer­sity, Iowa Wesleyan College and Simpson College have awarded him honorary de­grees.

Bishop Palmer was or­dained as a deacon and pro­bationary member in the East Ohio Conference of The United Methodist Church in 1977. He was later ordained an elder in full connection in 1981. He became the Resi­dent Bishop of the Ohio West Area of the UMC in 2012.

His career includes pastor­ates at several UMCs. He also served as District Superin­tendent of the Youngstown District.

In 2000, he was elect­ed to the episcopacy by the North Central Jurisdictional Conference. He was then assigned to the Iowa Area, where he served churches as a pastor until assuming respon­sibilities in the Illinois Area in 2008.

Bishop Palmer and his wife, Cynthia, are the par­ents of two grown children.

For those who wish to attend the Hoover Community Worship Service, a complimentary Church Pass may be obtained 7:30-10:30 a.m. Sunday; valid until 3 p.m. The pass includes admittance for guests and auto.
