Worship at Five

Worship at Five is PHPC's Sunday evening worship offering in Founders Hall. This service is band-led and features weekly communion.

No matter your age, race, gender, orientation or faith background, we invite you to join our community and share God's abundant grace. PHPC is an open and affirming congregation of the PC(USA). Worship at Five is an intergenerational and open to young and "tenured" alike, and anyone who is searching for a place to grow in faith. Wherever you are on your journey of faith, you are welcome.

Order of Worship

Worship at 5 follows the Reformed worship tradition, very similar to the order we have during our Sunday morning worship services, although some liturgical elements may be explored in new ways.  Each week, the service includes a Call to Worship, Prayer of Confession, Sermon, Offering, and Communion by intinction. From time to time, we also celebrate baptisms and welcome new members.

Music

We sing older hymns and newer tunes, accompanied by piano, guitar, bass, and drums. The musical styles vary from song to song, but you can expect some hand clapping, bluegrass, gospel, and folk-rock. The musical integrity and quality is what we have all come to expect at PHPC. Check out some samples of what the musical will be like:  

Children and Youth

Children are always welcome in worship! Grab a worship bag and some snacks, and if your child needs a little more room to wiggle, we have pillows and chairs in the back. After the Children's Sermon, all kids ages 3 years old through 2nd;grade are welcome to join us for a lesson designed just for them. This class is led by two trained volunteers in Room 119. The children that attend will rejoin worship after the sermon. We also offer nursery care in Room 121 for babies and toddlers.

Every Sunday during the school year, junior high youth (ages 7th-8th grade) are invited to head over to the Youth House following Worship at 5 for youth group and dinner! We hope you'll join us for Worship at 5 and then stick around for games, fellowship and a meal together.

Accessibility

Look for the handicap signs along Aberdeen for parking. The wheelchair ramp is to the left of the front doors of Founders Hall. Come up the ramp and we can guide you in from there.
