WORSHIP TIMES AND SUNDAY SCHOOL
We have traditional services every Sunday at 8:15 a.m. (Chapel), 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. (Sanctuary). We also have a worship service at 5 p.m. in Founder's Hall.
Adult sunday school
Sunday school classes meet weekly on Sunday mornings (9:30 a.m.) for study and fellowship. There are classes for young parents, couples, and those of all ages and stages of life.
Youth sunday school - worship in the house
Worship in the House is a unique worship service, designed specifically for youth (7th- 12th grade). Each Sunday, youth are invited to the youth house from 9:30- 10:30 to worship together. You can expect 2-3 songs led by the band, a scripture passage and theme for each week, plus some communal liturgy (Call to worship, passing of the peace, etc).
children's sunday school
Children's Sunday school is held every Sunday during the school year from 9:30-10:30 a.m. PHPC offers a warm and nurturing program that is designed to create excitement in learning about our Christian faith and we are called to be disciples for kids aged 3 through 6th grade. We use DWELL Sunday School curriculum. DWELL actively engages kids in God’s story using interactive games, reflective wondering, dramatic storytelling, and a whole lot of fun. Colorful story symbols create visual timelines; songs with kid appeal help memory verses stick; and wonderfully illustrated take-home pieces provide support to families. Through it all, DWELL invites kids to find their place in God’s story, living into and out of it for the rest of their lives. On Sunday mornings each DWELL level will be entering one of God’s stories, and then living into and out of it together. Your child will bring home a Show and Share paper designed to help kids show and share what they’ve learned at church with you at home.
WHERE DO I GO ON SUNDAYS?
When coming to the church, plan to park in the "primary lot" (see the "parking" tab) and walk through the courtyard (to the left of the Day School Gymnasium) and through the two sets of double doors to enter the building. Once inside, the Welcome Counter will be in front of you for more information and assistance. Please stop by the Welcome Center to pick up a New Visitor bag which contains detailed information about the ministries at PHPC.
To access the nursery/childcare rooms, enter the door to the right of the Day School Gymnasium under the tan "Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church" awning.
On Sunday evenings, we worship in Founders Hall at 5p.m. Please enter the building off Aberdeen Avenue and park near the soccer field.

Attendees will get to know some of the church staff, leadership and fellow new members and learn more about the impactful ministries and opportunities that PHPC has to offer. Starting Point is required for all who want to join.
Children are always welcome in worship, but we do have professional child care available for all children infant through 5 years old. Child care is provided on Sundays during worship and during other programs, as needed. Children’s worship kits are available at the entrance to the Sanctuary.
