PHPC Adults

You are
Welcome Here

At PHPC we believe that the purpose of adult learning is to help people make spiritual sense out of their lives and the world. Learning is not an end in itself. Instead, we learn with the purpose of growing in faith and being sent out into our everyday lives and the world as disciples of Jesus Christ.

What to Expect

When you enter through our doors, you can expect to be greeted by people who are glad to meet you. 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).
