WORSHIP GOD TOGETHER EACH WEEK

Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth. Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs…
Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise.
Psalm 100:1, 2, 4
 
Our mission is to provide inspiring worship experiences where individuals and families of all life stages can grow and engage with God through music, prayer, faith stories, drama, video, and Bible-based relevant teaching.
 
8:15 and 9:30am Classic Worship
These services are most often led by organ, piano, worship orchestra and choir. The style is a blend of hymns and rich, meaningful worship choruses.
 
11:00am Contemporary Worship
This service is led by a worship band comprised of vocalists, electric and acoustic guitar, bass, keys and drums. The experience utilizes modern media and songs primarily written in the last few years.
 
 

GROW IN CHRIST THROUGH GROWTH GROUPS

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ.
II Peter 3:18
 
It is our mission to help adults find and follow Jesus Christ by providing opportunities for spiritual growth. Based on Luke’s description in Acts 2:41-47 and 4:32-35, our Growth Groups are devoted to practicing the core principles of the New Testament church. We want to see followers of Christ who are Connecting with God in worship, Growing in Christ as part of a group and Serving the world with love.
 
Growth Groups meet weekly on and off campus and are geared for adults age 18 and up, married or single, young believer or mature believer. No matter where you are in your walk with Christ, there is a place for you.

    HOPE: Experience the Greatest Gift This Christmas (Week 1)
    HOPE \hop\ noun: a desire accompanied by expectation or of belief in fulfillment; verb: a) to cherish a desire with anticipation, b) to desire with expectation of obtainment, c) to expect with confidence. In a world that has by and large lost its hope, the birth of Jesus reminds us of this one game-changing truth: There IS hope!

    Following Jesus in a Difficult World: Spiritual Health Assessment (Week 4)
    We’re going to participate in some self-examination to see if we are indeed building the godly life Peter describes and God intends for us. 2 Peter 1:8-11 should serve as an assessment for us to determine our spiritual health and well-being, and to determine what course of action is needed for us to live godly lives.

    Following Jesus in a Difficult World: Blueprint For Building Godliness – Part 2 (Week 3)
    Building a Lego “guy” isn’t necessarily difficult – the key is just having the right pieces. Once you get the right pieces, you can pretty much figure out how to build the “guy.” In order to build a life of godliness, as with any Lego creation, we have to have the right “pieces.” 2 Peter 1:5-7 lists the building materials that are indispensable to becoming Christ-like. Let’s take a look and see if we can make some progress in our discipleship process.

    Following Jesus in a Difficult World: Blueprint For Building Godliness (Week 2)
    Last week, we learned from 2 Peter 1 that when it comes to following Jesus in a difficult world, God has given us everything we need. But the question is, “Where do we start?” In 2 Peter 1:5-7, Peter answers that question by giving us a step-by-step blueprint for what we must do to build godliness into our lives.

    Following Jesus in a Difficult World (Week 1)
    Why is it that we as Christians have such a hard time overcoming addictions, living pure lives, getting along with others and simply becoming more like Jesus? Although there may be any number of reasons, one reason for sure is that we don’t realize the availability of a power beyond ourselves – the power of God – that is at our disposal.

Accept His Little Gift (By Matt Williams)

It was Christmas!
No stockings hung by the fire with care.
No hopes of Santa Claus coming there.
It was simply a mother and father loving on their new baby boy,
Basking in all of that wonderful joy.

Pan and Zoom (By Dan Adams)

Whether it’s for a family gathering or a ministry project, I occasionally find myself compiling a video on my computer. It’s usually a highlight reel from a youth event or a picture collage for a family gathering. One of my favorite video effects to use is the pan and zoom. It’s an effect, sometimes called the Ken Burns effect, which allows you to compile snapshot photos in a way that shows the inherent motion captured in the still pictured. I expect this effect to show up in videos and movies.

Selfless (By Pam Scott)

Not long ago, I received a call from one of our VBS moms from the community. During our conversation, I was reminded of the soft, impressionable, giving hearts of children.

Exceeding Our Goal (By Dan Barfell)

On Sunday, November 19, we took a special offering for our annual Thanksgiving Offering. Our goal was to raise $20,000 on this one Sunday to help supply clean drinking water to our newly adopted village of Ahumbe, Nigeria. I am so glad to report to you that by God’s grace and your generosity, we exceeded our goal!

Serve Like Jesus (By Dan Adams)

To be like Jesus…it’s one of our highest callings, greatest challenges, and supreme privileges. To be like Jesus has been, and will continue to be, my life-long goal. Christians often talk about being Christ-like. But what does that really look like? I want practical steps.

Give Thanks: Part 2 (By Matt Williams)

Last week, I noted that we had entered the Christmas season, but tucked away in the middle of all this hullabaloo is a neat little, often unnoticed holiday called Thanksgiving. We briefly looked at Psalm 138:1, “I WILL GIVE you thanks WITH ALL my heart” (emphasis added), and you were challenged by David to truly GIVE THANKS.

Give Thanks (By Matt Williams)

 We have officially entered the Christmas season, yet my calendar says we’re still 53 days away. And tucked in the middle of all the holiday madness is an often under-noticed holiday…Thanksgiving.

Community Connections (By Pam Scott)

God weaves the tapestry in our lives in such a way that it helps us to point others to Him. Just recently, I attended a celebration for a double lung recipient. There were approximately 150 people from the community there. Most of them I didn’t know.
 
As I entered, I was asked if I would be willing to pray before we enjoyed dinner together. Of course, what a privilege to be able to share that this was truly a miracle and give glory to the One who made the miracle happen.

A Guest: What’s It Like? (By Kraig Anderson)

I’ve been motivated and inspired by Pastor Dan’s approach to the renewal at PHBC. His message series on renewal starting with each of us individually, with me, is certainly where church renewal must start.

Stony Glen Campout (By Dan Adams)

One of my favorite places in the entire world is Stony Glen Camp, which is conveniently only about an hour’s drive from home. I love this place for so many reasons: the beautiful sets of waterfalls, the comfortable and quiet cabins, the peaceful lake, and the endless paths through the forest. When I want to get away into nature, this is the place.
