"The Church in the Wildwood"

Welcome to Palma Sola Community Church online.  We are a non-denominational, Bible teaching, grace oriented church . At Palma Sola Community Church Scripture is presented verse by verse and taught from a dispensational perspective by pastors Richard Erickson and Larry Metcalf. Intake and application of sound Bible doctrine are emphasized as the way for believers to grow in the Lord Jesus Christ. "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works." 2Timothy 3:16-17

Our historic church, first known as "the church in the wildwood" because of location, was established and constructed in 1886 when Asa Pillsbury Sr. donated land for a church, cemetery and school. The original wooden church, which was destroyed by fire in 1904, had a foundation of 12 x 12 timbers that washed ashore from shipwrecks in Tampa Bay; logs and lumber from the W. S. Warner family sawmill at Palma Sola Point. J. B. Rogers, and early pioneer of the area, built the present picturesque sanctuary in 1905 on the same timbers with cement blocks made at the site. Mrs. Harold Phelps and Mrs. Frank Smith donated the beautiful Italian cedar trees growing around the sanctuary. They were planted a short time after the new building was completed and are considered to be some of the most significant specimens found in any area of the South. Members are dedicated to the preservation of the sanctuary and historic site.
