Our History


We will celebrate our 60th Anniversary in 2018

Come and See!


Palm Lake Christian Church was born of foresight by the Late Roy Bishop who along with other members of Mirror Lake Christian Church, formerly located in downtown St. Petersburg, purchased the plot of ground at 5401 22nd Ave North. Mr. Bishop had a vision in the 1950's that St. Petersburg would grow to the west and that a large population of people would reside in that area known as Seminole, Bay Pines, and in the area west of 49th Street.

Initially the 10 acres of land that formerly was a chicken farm had a small block home and a chicken coop building with a corrugated tin roof and wooden floor. The vision developed and on May 18, 1958 a group of 94 members were commissioned in a special service at Mirror Lake Christian Church and then departed to form a new church which was named Palm Lake Christian Church. The name was chosen, in a contest, by Harold Malone. The property on 22nd Avenue North had a small lake on it and 22nd Avenue stopped at 53rd Street North. At that time there were no palm trees on the property but that changed quickly as members donated them to surround the lake.
