At 11:00am, there is a worship experience for ages 4–5 and kindergarten in A-7, and grades 1–4 go to the youth center when the children are dismissed from the worship service. Grades 5–6 are to stay in the worship service with their parents.
Junior and Senior High students (grades 7-12) meet for Sunday School at 9:30am in the youth center.
PHBC is a church of Growth Groups. These are designed to be smaller settings where you can connect with other people just like you, find encouragement, study and grow together. We have a variety of Growth Groups that meet on Sunday mornings at 9:30 and 11:00am.

Impact is what happens when one object comes forcibly into contact with another. For that reason, we call our Wednesday night program IMPACT. We invite you and your family to join us for a fun and engaging evening every Wednesday, September through May. There is something for everyone, so feel free to stop by and check us out.

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.


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.

Caring for one another in Christ.
Sound biblical teaching that encourages spiritual growth.
Meeting the needs of others
in the world.

Finding Joy in the Journey (Week 2)
Did you ever feel that you started out the Christian life with all the enthusiasm in the world, but now you’re at what seems like a standstill? Or do you know people in your life who started the Christian life well, but seemingly aren’t finishing too strongly? If so, I hope you will find encouragement from today’s message.

    Finding Joy in the Journey (Week 1)
    I don’t know about you, but sometimes I need to get my joy back! The Christian life is certainly a journey sometimes filled with ups and  downs, victories and defeats, accomplishments and failures, and highs and lows. But we need to find joy in the journey!
    If you’ve noticed that your “joy-o-meter” is in the red zone, then this sermon series is for you! Over the next several weeks, we are going to discover how we can live a life of happiness that circumstances cannot change.

    Striking Your Arrows
    As we close out 2017 and look towards 2018, we are going to look at a short Old Testament story in the Bible that used a primitive weapon as a lesson for a king and can serve as a point of instruction and inspiration for us heading into a new year.

    HOPE: Experience the Greatest Gift This Christmas (Week 3)
    In a world that has by and large lost its hope, the Christmas story reminds us that there is hope. There is hope because:
    - God can do the impossible.
    - Jesus saved us from the penalty of sin.
    This morning, we are going to learn that not only has Jesus saved us from the penalty of sin, but He is also saving us from the power of sin.

    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.



Dreaming of Summer: 2017 Camperships Report (By Pam Scott)

Congratulations to our students who earned a scholarship towards summer camp in 2017! Each year, Children’s Ministry offers a campership to any student who completes a daily Bible study and memorizes Scripture. In total, 15 students earned the $75 campership and used the scholarship to spend a week at a Christian summer camp. They attended Stony Glen, Cedarbrook, and Faith Ranch.


What Would Jesus Do? (By Tim H.)

Back in the 1990s, many Christians in the United States were wearing bracelet with the letters “WWJD” on them. The letters stood for “What Would Jesus Do”. Many used these letters as a reminder of their belief in a moral imperative to act in a manner that would demonstrate the love of Jesus through their actions.


What Really Happened on Christmas Morning? (By Tim H.)

We are celebrating Christmas this weekend and I have to ask you, “What really happened Christmas morning?” I am not looking for the Sunday School response of “Jesus was born”. I am looking for a deeper understanding of the significance of Christ’s birth. Let’s consider a few things:


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.
