Senior Adults

We have a vibrant group of Senior Adults 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. 

Book studies, Sunday lunch speakers, information sessions and faith formation opportunities designed specifically for our Senior Adult Ministry population are offered on a regular basis. Information and registration will always be posted on our website and in our newsletter.

Presbyterian Women

Bible study, service, fellowship - Presbyterian Women (PW) has a strong presence at PHPC. PW is open to all women, as everyone has something unique to offer. Part of PW’s purpose is “to build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom.” 

This year's bible study is based on the women listed in Jesus' genealogy in the Gospel of Matthew: Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary. 

See more details in the Men's and Women's Ministry site under Presbyterian Women.
