Support Groups

"Good Grief"

PHPC’s grief support group, “Good Grief,” occurs periodically throughout the year 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 and 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 $20 and scholarships are available. Please check back soon for our Winter Good Grief session.
Register for Good Grief

Grief is a part of life and the timing of events may not align with our seasonal Good Grief series. Please contact Mahlon Hight at or extension 118 in the church office and she will be happy to refer you to additional trusted resources.

The Long Road

Do you have a loved one who has received a diagnosis of Dementia/Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s? Are you a caregiver or perhaps attempting to coordinate care for this person? Perhaps you feel like you are alone in this endeavor, or are baffled, maybe frustrated with navigating all the things required to provide care for your loved one.

The Care Ministry at PHPC is beginning a monthly support group aimed at providing community, relief, information, and fun for people who are in the midst of living with and for loved ones with these challenging diagnoses. Our first gathering will be October 16 at 6:30 p.m. in the Parlor. A light snack supper will be served. At this initial gathering, we will attempt to discover what will be most helpful for participants, so plan to bring your stories and your ideas to share. Since these diseases affect all ages and stages, this group welcomes all ages. Please contact Mahlon Hight, with questions or if you are unable to attend on the 16th but are interested in The Long Road.

Senior Adults

Senior Adult Ministry

We have a large vibrant group of Senior Adults here at PHPC and we strive to offer a variety of experiences that address the continuing need for fun, fellowship, spiritual growth and faith development. Throughout the year we offer opportunities at PHPC as well as offsite. Information and registration will be posted on our website.
