Worship at Five

 A different kind of contemporary.

PHPC is excited to announce a brand new worship service, beginning September 10! Join us each Sunday for Worship at Five, 5 p.m. in Founders Hall.

We will gather around a table, around a fresh loaf of bread and the cup of renewal. We will gather to make joyful noises, encouraging all ages to join in songs, old and new, with toes tapping and hands clapping. We will gather to hear familiar stories expressed creatively, and to respond faithfully with our hands and our hearts. 

What will the order of worship be?  

It's worship, as holy as it's always been.  The service will follow the reformed worship tradition, very similar to the order we have at our Sunday morning worship services, although some liturgical elements may be explored in new ways.  There will still be a Call to Worship, Prayer of Confession, Sermon, Prayers of the People, Offering, Music as well as Communion by intinction every week. Baptism Sundays will also be celebrated. 

Who is this service for?

Any and all who prefer to worship God in a different way.  This service will be intergenerational and open to young and "tenured" alike, to folks inside our community and those in our neighborhood who are searching for a place to grow in faith.

What kind of music will be offered?

We will sing old hymns and new songs, set to piano, guitar, bass, and drums.  The musical settings will vary, but you can expect some blues, bluegrass, gospel and rock. The musical integrity and quality will be what we have all come to expect at PHPC. Check out some samples of what the musical vibe will be below:  

Will there be childcare?  

Yes!  Just like we have at other services.  However, all are welcome, and children are encouraged to worship with their families.
