A ministry of the deacon board, homebound communion provides extension of PHPC to those members who, temporarily or on a more long term basis, are unable to attend church. Three Sundays a year, communion is delivered by pastors and officers. Scripture is read and the elements are blessed, communion servers share bread and juice with homebound members. If you would like to be part of the group that serves, please contact our Care office at 214.368.6348 ext 134 or register below.
Our care ministry is called to blend and address the care and nurture of members and their families throughout the aging process in the context of faith and spirituality.

A team of church members devote about 2-3 hours per month, including travel time, to visit our members who reside nearby in assisted living and long-term care facilities (LTCF). This team of dedicated volunteers brings the presence of PHPC to those who cannot attend worship services. The LTCF team rotates to see about 3-5 people at a different facility each month. Visits can be made any day of the week at the visitor’s pace.
If you would like to join our LTCF team or explore this ministry opportunity, contact Tammy Hale at

Faith and Grief Gatherings
If you are mourning the death of a loved one, we invite you to attend one of our Faith and Grief Gatherings. These free luncheons explore the crossover between our faith journey and the pain of our grief. Strengthened by food, Scripture, prayers and reflection, attendees will hear a speaker share their experiences with grief, and then have an opportunity to discuss the topic of the day at their tables. Participants are required to register on or before the third Monday of each month for the luncheon on the third Thursday of the month.
For more information, call 469-251-9612.
