    Exploring our new vision statement through community, food, and study.

    September 24-November 11

    Sign up here


    This spring, the Preston Hollow Session discerned a new vision statement to guide our ministry and life together.  This fall, we will be exploring the statement as a congregation in worship and through study.

    Join a table group to add your voice.

    Each week will feature a scripture that illuminates the new statement and corresponds with the sermon text from weekly worship.

    PHPC Table Groups are:

    …an opportunity to explore the Bible with others

    a place to belong and to form meaningful connections

    …a shared food and community experience

    …a way to recognize God in everyday life

    Why Table Groups?

    In the life of faith we are invited to move from Christ’s Table in worship to a common table outside the walls of the church—tables are a place where we live out and experience the grace of Christ’s table. Tables are also a reminder of Jesus’ intention and willingness to eat with anyone. Tables are a radical extension of God’s grace in the world.

    When and Where Do They Meet?

    Table Groups meet weekly for an initial eight-week experience for an hour and a half at the church, in homes, and a variety of other locations throughout Dallas. You can sign up to join a Table at a time and day that works for you, or with an affinity group that fits your age and stage of life.

    The Structure

    During the first half of the meeting, groups participate in Bible study and book discussion with a guided curriculum. For the second half, groups engage one another in the question, "How is your life in God?” Each session closes with prayer.

    The Food

    Your table group will determine the type of food that you want to incorporate into your time together.  It can be as much as a full meal or as little as cheese and crackers or cookies. These decisions are made by your group during your first gathering. 

    How do I join a Table Group?

    Sign up online or on Sunday, September 16 at the Discipleship ministry fair.
