Get To Know Us
We know that coming to church might feel intimidating or even stressful. We want to help make your visit with us simple and exciting so you can focus on knowing and worshiping God!
What can I expect?
Service Length And Activity
A regular service at PHWC is about 2 hours in length. Services start with the PHWC praise and worship team leading the church in music. We project the words of the songs at the front of the church in case you're not familiar with the lyrics. Some people clap, some people raise their hands and others simply sing. After singing we show a brief video of upcoming events, take up an offering and welcome newcomers. Once the video is complete our Pastor will step out and share a biblical sermon with the congregation.
What's The Culture Like?
We are regular people eager to know about God more and honor him with everything we do. Sundays are focused on connecting with each other and worshiping God with our time and attention. We are mostly casual, upbeat and excited to be at church. Come expecting friendly people and a welcoming church family.
What Should I Wear?
We encourage you to wear whatever you’re comfortable in. You’ll see some people in jeans and a t-shirt others might be wearing a dress or a suit. Our pastor’s motto is “just wear clothes.”
What about my kids?
At PHWC we're excited to offer God centered activities for children of all ages. We invest in them as the future church and we want them to have an exciting and safe time while you’re here.
Children From K - 5th Grade
W.O.W. is our Children's Ministry at PHWC. It stands for Worship Our Way. Each Sunday morning you can check-in your child and they will be in a service dedicated totally to them with music, activities and bible focused lessons. You’re welcome to stay with them as long as you’d like during the service. Their service and classes are held from 10am until church is dismissed.
Kids From 6th - 12th Grade
Amp'd is our JR/SR high ministry at PHWC. Each Sunday they meet in their own space. They participate in games, group discussions and lessons aimed to teach them how to apply God answers to teenage life.
Amp'd starts right after song service concludes and we’ll put up a dissmisal notification on the screen at the front of the church. You can follow the other students to the Amp’d room from there.
We have a nursery available for newborns, toddlers and preschoolers. There will be friendly staff available to assist you on Sunday mornings. It's also equipped with toys, a cozy couch and plenty of rocking chairs. Services are streamed into the room for parents who don't want to miss out.
Each Sunday at 10am

We're Better Together
That's somewhat of a motto around here. We believe the church is essential in the life of a christian and we are better together. We look forward to seeing you!
