Thursday Disciple Bible Study
Disciple is a long-standing study at PHPC. The group meets on Thursdays from 9:30-noon in the Church conference room for fellowship and Bible study. Disciple generally studies curriculum that recommend (but not require) a little light reading outside of class, but newcomers who have not done the reading will not be left behind.
Thursday Bible Studies
Two weekly Bible studies are being offered on Thursday mornings both led by Rev. Dr. John McCoy, a retired PC(USA) minister and longtime friend of PHPC. McCoy has led Bible studies at another local congregation for many years that draw more than 100 people each week. Historically, the earlier study was geared to men, the later study to women. At PHPC, both studies welcome all who want to attend. The Thursday 7:15 a.m. class will study the Book of Genesis and the Thursday 8:15 a.m. class will study the Book of Acts. Both studies will take place in Jubilee Hall. No Bible knowledge is necessary and all are welcome to attend.
Men's Breakfast Studies (Tuesday or Saturday Mornings)
PHPC has two active Men's Breakfast Groups. There's a Tuesday morning (6:45 - 8 a.m.) group and a Saturday morning (7:30 - 9 a.m.) group. Both groups meet in the North Dining Room and enjoy a hearty breakfast, fellowship, a devotional, and a speaker. New attendees are welcome to both groups any time! Get more information about the men's breakfast here.
No Embarrassment, No Excuses Bible Studies
Wednesdays: 6:45 – 7:45 a.m. and again from 11 a.m. – noon - both groups meet in the Church Conference Room
No Embarrassment, No Excuses Bible Studies are designed for anyone wanting to be part of a non-threatening exploration of the Bible. The 6:45 a.m. class attracts those who enjoy lively conversation and study on the way to work. The 11:00 a,m. class is attended by many who participate in other “Wonderful Wednesday” events. The only requirement is an open heart and mind, and a willingness to learn from one another.
Presbyterian Women (PW)
Presbyterian Women (PW) is open to all women, as everyone has something unique to offer. Part of PW’s purpose is “to build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom.” More information and meeting times.

Women's Evening Bible Study (WEBS)
WEBS enjoys energetic fellowship, Bible study, and prayerful support. Group members range from ages 25-75; most, but not all, are working women who cannot attend study during the day. Diverse backgrounds enrich the dialogue and encourage the application of our studies. The group meets Wednesdays from 6:30 - 8 p.m. in Room N226. Come at 6:15 p.m. for coffee and conversation.
Short-Term Weekday Studies
There are a number of short-term (generally 3-4 weeks) weekday/night studies offered throughout the year. Details will be included here and in other church communications as opportunities arise.
