Join PHPC Kids!
Come join PHPC this fall! With newly-renovated classrooms, upgrades to Founders Hall, and an all-new curriculum, the program promises to challenge and inspire kids and adults alike!
Preschoolers will spend the morning in their classrooms, getting to know one another, their teachers, and God through stories and play.
Grades 1-4 will first gather in Founders Hall for music, a short video and fellowship before breaking into grade-level classrooms for discussion.
Grades 5-6 will meet in their new, designed just for them, lounge for an introduction to their lesson before splitting into discussion groups.
Embrace the family atmosphere that makes PHPC so unique and be apart of PHPC Kids this fall!

Share Stewardship With Your Children
The Stewardship Campaign offers a great opportunity to talk with your children about the importance of giving. We have provided two promise cards, one for pre-schoolers and one for elementary age students linked below that you can have your child fill out and either return in the collection plate on Dedication Sunday, November 8, return to their Sunday School collection, or simply keep at home as a reminder that giving goes on year round.
About our Children's Ministry
Our journey of faith begins at an early age, and we are here to nurture that growing faith.
From the beginning, we teach the stories of the Bible that give children a foundation for building a strong faith. We help families to be the first teachers of the Bible for their children.
We are committed to this wonderful and challenging responsibility!
Child Care and Sunday School
During times when there is no Sunday School, there is child care for all three services for children five and under. Children are encouraged to attend worship with their parents. Children’s worship kits are available at Sanctuary and Chapel entrances.
Learn about our procedures and policies for baptism here.
Children's Choir and Handbell Choirs
PHPC is blessed with a thriving music ministry. It offers Children's Choir for children age four through the sixth grade and handbell choir for fourth through sixth graders. These groups rehearse from early September through Palm Sunday each year. More details.
We offer wonderful events throughout the year such as an Easter Festival, a family Christmas Eve service, Advent Festival, Fireside Christmas Story Time, and a Living Creche (nativity scene).
PHPC is proud to be at the forefront of churches providing medically sound, biblically based, and culturally sensitive training on God's gift of sexuality. The next class will be January 2015. To register your child, click here.
Our Acolyte program is an opportunity for 4th, 5th, and 6th graders to be a part of a rotating team trained to open the worship services. Scheduling is on a rotating basis and is very flexible to accommodate vacations and other conflicts.
A fellowship opportunity for 5th and 6th graders who meet once a month from September to June for social and service events to build friendship and faith. Visit our Route 56 page!
Parent's Day Out (PDO)
PDO is available from September to May, Tuesdays through Fridays from 9:15 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. Visit the PDO page for more details.
