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.
Children’s Worship Space
Bring the family to worship and check out the balcony in the Sanctuary. We have transformed the first row of the balcony into a space for kids by having a comfy floor, pillows, and more worship activities for the kids.

Hickory Crossing: New Ministry Opportunities
Visit the table in the Atrium near the library Sunday morning, where you can learn more information about long-term and short-term opportunities through this new urban mission. These include tax-deductible giving through Target to furnish the 400 square foot apartments and on-site assistance with assembly of some furnishings prior to move-in in September. An immediate goal is to provide a welcoming gift for each household. This will be a cross-stitched, framed canvas that reads “Love Lives Here.” These kits will be provided to those who enjoy this craft at no cost. For more information, contact Rev. Elizabeth Boone McLean at firstname.lastname@example.org.
