What to Expect

We sincerely hope that you find PHOP a warm, inviting place where you can worship the Lord, hear the Gospel preached, and be encouraged through fellowship!

If you are new to the Plattsburgh area, looking for a new church home or simply want a place to visit along your faith journey, here's what you will find at Plattsburgh House of Prayer: 

Pre-Service Fellowship

Every Sunday morning we have pre-service fellowship time (about 30 minutes before the service starts). This is a perfect opportunity for you to come, meet a few people and get situated (especially if you're wondering where your kids will be for nursery and Children's Church) before the service begins.


We hope our love for God is evident through our corporate worship. Our worship services involve instruments, modern worship songs and hymns, clapping, raising hands, and sometimes dancing. You can read everything we believe about worshipful expressions here. Children remain with their parents during worship time.


Before the sermon begins, the emcee of the service will clearly dismiss children to nurseries (0-3) and Children's Church (4-11). We provide childcare so that you can be focused and without distraction during the sermon and so your kids can enjoy church, too. If you'd prefer to have your children stay with you in the sanctuary during the sermon, that's also totally okay. Whatever is best for your family!

Childcare is provided by members of PHOP who have been approved by the eldership to work with children. We also run background checks on all workers to ensure children's safety.


Every Sunday, one of the pastors shares for about 35-40 minutes. Occasionally we'll have guest ministry from another pastor or missionary.
