PHPC Serves

PHPC’s growth through service continues this fall and beyond. We invite you to share your gifts through service during each month that has a 5th Saturday. Whether it’s an organized service day through the church, or your own personal service to a group in the community, we respond to being Rooted in God’s Generosity by passing that generosity along.

Rev. Dr. Joanna Adams

PHPC will welcome the Rev. Dr. Joanna M. Adams as our guest preacher on Sunday, October 16. As a preacher, educator, writer and community leader the Rev. Dr. Joanna M. Adams is a leading voice in the Presbyterian Church. One of her most recent endeavors is the blog Higher Ground, sponsored by The Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta, in which Joanna, an imam, a rabbi and another noted Christian minister discuss issues, challenges and successes while demonstrating how collaboration can create a strong community. A graduate of Columbia Theological Seminary, Joanna holds an honorary doctorate of divinity from Davidson College and also received the Alumni Association Medal of Honor from Emory and Columbia’s Distinguished Alumnus/ae Award.

Commit Season

We will respond to God’s Generosity during our three-week Commit season that will run October 16, 23 and culminate in a Sunday full of growth and celebration on October 30. In addition to Commit Sunday when PHPC members can share their gifts of time, talent, and treasure, we will celebrate Kirkin of the Tartans, and will have a catered BBQ lunch on The Avenue, with a Dessert Competition, as well as bounce houses, face painting, and more activities for families.




Growing in the Fall

Our very successful MusikGarten program will continue this Fall for children ages 0-2 and their parents. The class will run from
9:30-10 a.m. 
and a parenting class for those parents who have children in MusikGarten will be offered from 10 to 10:30 a.m.

PHPC Kids will use the book, The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein as we form a deeper understanding about what it means to be Rooted in God’s Generosity. In the book, love compels the tree to give of herself over and over again for the sake of the boy’s happiness, health, and joy. She gives until she has nothing left of herself but a stump. Even then she gives the boy as a seat on which to rest. We will explore through hands-on activities, and through gardening how The Giving Tree parallels with God’s generosity in our lives.

Adult Sunday School
All adults are invited as we kick off our fall semester Sunday School on September 11 joining together at The Gathering at 9 a.m. and then moving to Jubilee Hall at 9:30. In Jubilee Hall, you can meet with each of the classes to learn more about the exciting offerings for the new season. We will continue to have Couples in Faith, Faith Bible Discovery and Fellowship classes. Each will have representatives to help you learn more about what they are going to be studying. We will also be starting two new classes. The first of these is a parenting class that will focus on faithful parenting for the elementary-age child. The other class will be focused on current issues in our PHPC community. We will begin with a study on Race. Come on September 11 to learn more about each of the classes’ fall curricula.

Small Groups
PHPC’s Small Group ministry will participate in a sermon series study in the Fall. Stay tuned for more information!


The Gathering

Join us Sundays this fall at 9 a.m. in Founders Hall at The Gathering, an intergenerational time of music, fellowship, and prayer. All ages will come together to begin Sundays. There will be coffee from Holy Joe’s as well as hot chocolate and donuts each week. Come grow in faith every Sunday at The Gathering.
