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.” Typically, a PHPC pastor reviews the day’s lesson, and then we break into Circles for in-depth discussion.

Thursday Morning Book Study - via Zoom
Led by Rev. Mark Brainerd
What if that person you’ve been trying to avoid is your best shot at grace today? And what if that’s the point? In Accidental Saints, New York Times best-selling author, Nadia Bolz-Weber, invites readers into a surprising encounter with what she calls “a religious but not so spiritual life.“ In a time when many have rightly become disillusioned with Christianity, Accidental Saints demonstrates what happens when ordinary people share bread and wine, struggle with scripture together and tell each other the truth about their real lives.
All are welcome! Weekly meetings are facilitated by Rev. Mark Brainerd.
