Pine Ridge Presbyterian Church

Music Ministry

God has blessed Pine Ridge with many talented, musical people. There is much more to making music happen than a beautiful voice or a nice sounding instrument. It takes volunteers to help lead, organize, and maintain. It takes parents who are committed to getting their children to all the different functions and rehearsals. The music at Pine Ridge would never happen without dedicated volunteers like you. Please consider participating in an ensemble this season.

If your schedule will not allow you to commit, then please consider doing a special in a worship service sometime. Everyone will appreciate you sharing your musical gift.
