Worship at Five is a service that I have grown to love since it was started over a year ago. When I first stepped foot into this new worship space I just wanted to find out what it was all about. Now, it’s my favorite time to worship. I have learned how to worship with new songs that have become as precious as the hymns I sang as a child. They are soothing, renewing and fill my spirit.
Worship at Five has reconnected me with God in a new way. I love that it feels unrushed, and everyone is acknowledged. It has given me a new sense of community at PHPC. Worship at Five is a space where no matter where you are in your journey of faith you feel welcome and accepted.
I know that God is at work in this space when I see the children-friendly spaces that have been incorporated into the worship area. I particularly love worshiping with my grandchildren during this service. They love eating the snacks, watching the band play, singing, and taking communion together. They can stand in the aisles to get a better view and that’s okay! I also enjoy teaching Sunday school on a monthly rotation to see first-hand how parents are teaching their children to pray, to think about how we should treat each other, and care for one another.
Come give Worship at Five a try, and you will fall in love with this service just as I have.
Worship at Five is a different kind of contemporary service, offered every Sunday at 5 p.m. in Founders Hall. Join us or watch our stream on Facebook!
