The PHPC Diaconate provides Communion to members who are unable to attend church in person. Four Sundays a year, following worship, Communion is delivered to residences by active and retired Deacons. Scripture is read, prayers are offered and bread and juice are shared as we extend the table to our home-centered members.

PHPC’s grief support group, “Good Grief” occurs three times a year. Good Grief is typically offered in the winter, the summer, and the fall and consists of 6 weekly sessions. These sessions usually happen at the church on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm. Rev. Mark Brainerd and Mahlon Hight lead the weekly sessions and all materials are provided.
Grief is a deeply personal and an ongoing part of life. We believe that by coming together with others who are grieving, sharing common feelings and experiences, we begin to move forward with grief in a healthy way.
For more information contact Mahlon Hight at
The cost of “Good Grief” is $25 and scholarships are available. To sign up and pay for an upcoming session, click the button below.
