"Divine Encounters: Within Your Reach"
Mark 5:21-43

Pastor Rick

Welcome Olivia Heyer!
PHCC Interim Worship Director

I am 21 about to be a senior Elementary Education Major at Northwestern College. I live with my husband and my family in Larchwood, IA. Jesus Christ is the foundation on which I stand. I’ve always been blessed with a faith I could always count on. In the last couple of years, I have dug deep and consistently into the Bible to find out the many truths it holds, and my favorite thing is to share those truths with youth. I’ve been involved in the church for as long as I can remember. I’ve sang in church since I was about 7 years old, and I was on the praise team until last year. I have also taught Sunday school voluntarily for 3 years now. I am a very relational person. I want to connect, and I want to be someone who these kids can come to. I never thought I would be in a position like this, and I will definitely need help along the way, but I can promise you I will give you my best shot. I believe that this is a window God has opened for me, and I can’t wait to see where it takes me next.

The Regathering Plan for PHCC continues to be phased in.  We recognize that other churches and organizations are already gathering as groups in their buildings.  We respect their choices and ask you to respect the pace of our plan.  We have a committee working on the development of short range and long range guidelines for church gatherings and designing a process for their implementation.  Our goal is to provide a safe and welcoming environment.  We also recognize that part of our new reality is that we will need to be flexible and prepared to respond quickly to new information and changes. 

The first phase of the plan has been to provide a live FM broadcast in the parking lot and YouTube internet streaming of our worship services.  Last Sunday was our first Parking Lot Service.  We are very appreciative for the volunteers who spent many hours preparing, testing and serving at the service.  We will provide both the FM Broadcast and the YouTube Streaming of the worship services as a permanent part of our ministry.

The second phase of the plan will be to begin gathering in the building for worship.  This phase will hopefully begin in July depending on a number of factors. The Regathering Guidelines will outline the protective requirements and practices we will be following.  We recognize that people have different convictions and needs during this time and that they will need to make their own choices about when they are comfortable to regather in a crowd.

The third phase will include instituting Life Groups (small group) gatherings both live in homes and at church as well as via Zoom for study and fellowship.  We will also continue to adjust our guidelines and gathering practices as we learn and experience the new realities. 

We ask for your continued patience and grace toward each other as we move forward.  We value your input and ask for your prayers as we all seek to love God, love others and make disciples. 

Please contact Pastor Rick at if you have any questions.
