Our journey of faith begins at an early age, and we are here to nurture that growing faith.
From the beginning, we teach the stories of the Bible that give children a foundation for building a strong faith. We help families to be the first teachers of the Bible for their children.
We are committed to this wonderful and challenging responsibility!
Child Care and Sunday School
During times when there is no Sunday School, there is child care for all three services for children five and under. Children are encouraged to attend worship with their parents. Children’s worship kits are available at Sanctuary and Chapel entrances.
Learn about our procedures and policies for baptism here.
Children's Choir and Handbell Choirs
PHPC is blessed with a thriving music ministry. It offers Children's Choir for children age four through the sixth grade and handbell choir for fourth through sixth graders. These groups rehearse from early September through Palm Sunday each year. More details.
We offer wonderful events throughout the year such as an Easter Festival, a family Christmas Eve service, Advent Festival, Fireside Christmas Story Time, and a Living Creche (nativity scene).
PHPC is proud to be at the forefront of churches providing medically sound, biblically based, and culturally sensitive training on God's gift of sexuality. The next class will be January 2015.
Our Acolyte program is an opportunity for 4th, 5th, and 6th graders to be a part of a rotating team trained to open the worship services. Scheduling is on a rotating basis and is very flexible to accommodate vacations and other conflicts.
A fellowship opportunity for 5th and 6th graders who meet once a month from September to June for social and service events to build friendship and faith. Visit our Route 56 page!
