Call for LTCF Friendly Visitors
Did you know that our congregational care department coordinates a visitation team for long term care facilities (LTCF)? These are church members who devote about 2-3 hours per month, including travel time, to visit our members who reside nearby in assisted living and LTCF. The team of dedicated volunteers brings the presence of PHPC to those who don’t attend worship services. Most of the persons we visit listen via WRR 101.1 FM. The LTCF team rotates, stopping by to see about 3-5 persons at a different facility each month. Visits can be made any day of the week at your own pace. After the visits the team member sends a brief email to the coordinator, Sandy Dehn. That’s all it takes. We currently have openings for two friendly visitors to join the team. Won’t you please consider it? Explore the idea by contacting Dee Wadsworth email@example.com or 214-368-6348 ext 118 for further information as well as training materials for those who wish to participate.
Pulp to Pulpit: Biblical Parallels to Today’s Superheroes
They have been recognizable symbols of good for decades, but how much do these box office sensations owe to the Biblical stories of old? Join Rev.

The class will meet in Jubilee Hall B Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. and will continue through March 29.

In our religious practice we often hear eloquent prayers that end up making us think on a personal level that we don’t know how to pray. Are there right words? Is there a right format? What is prayer for? Join Amy Moore April 12-May 3 on a journey to discover your Path to Relationship And Your Experience with the Risen Savior.
