Children's Ministry

We believe our children are a part of God's covenant family now. We treat them like they are part of the Church because they truly are! Kids are a wonderful gift from God and it is our desire to love them as our own, like one big family. We believe in teaching small ways to love God and share toys through words and crafts little ones understand. Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them." As a church, we accept and love this responsibility, and aim to carefully lead them toward their Heavenly Father.

Our nursery and preschool care is available throughout all Sunday morning activities and is a safe, great place for your youngest ones to be cared for on an interactive, healthy level. Headed up by Ms. Gabrielle Samuels and our team of volunteers.

After sitting in on the first half of worship service, kids from kindergarten to 4th grade are invited to Children's Church where they continue in a parallel learning and worship time that is Christ-centered and prepares them for "big church."

Nursery & Preschool

When you arrive at Pine Ridge on Sunday morning, our nursery and preschool team will be there to greet you and check in your child. We strive to provide a safe and nurturing environment for infants through preschool (0-4 years) and get them moving and engaging in arts, crafts, play time, and snacks.

Kindergarten-4th grade

Every Sunday at 9:45 am before the main worship service, elementary age kids meet where they kids can bond in friendship and get Biblical teaching on in a smaller group setting. This group meets every Sunday at 9:45 am before the main worship service.

Later, during the worship service, they are dismissed for Children's Church, an interactive worship experience that parallels "big church."

The aim of our children's ministry is to love children as Jesus did and teach them to trust in and depend on God through Biblical, Christ-centered teaching. All of our volunteers are vetted and love serving with a happy heart. If you have any questions regarding our children's ministry, please contact our church office at pineridgepca@gmail.com.

Student Ministry

2018-MiddleSchoolGroup.jpg

We want our students to have a place where they can grow in their faith and a circle of friends they can walk alongside as a Christian student. Middle and high school is a crucial time for students so we want to do our best as a church to build their foundation on Jesus and learn the value of friendship and serving. We are working hard to grow our student ministry and we hope you'll come be a part of it.

Our student group meets every Sunday morning at 9:45 in the main building (North wing) at Pine Ridge.

Young Adults Ministry

Our young adults ministry, "College Twenties" for short, is a group of college students and twenty-somethings being friends and growing in our faith together. We focus on studying God's Word weekly, and get together once a month for a fun event or outing to build deeper friendships. College Twenties has always been an environment

We meet on Thursday evenings each week either at Pine Ridge or in someone's home to study God's word and talk about things that matter to us. We pray together and for each other. And we spend time together building authentic relationships. You're invited!

This week:

 
 

Small groups are where we get connected to one another in more intimate environments where building authentic relationships happens. Groups usually range from around 10-20 people. We believe it's a crucial part of life in the Church to be closely connected to a group of people you can trust and lean on. We strive to disciple and be discipled by each other.

CARE Groups

Third Sunday of each month: These groups gather monthly in homes to help further their love and commitment to others. Often a meal is shared, and a time of prayer follows – but each C.A.R.E. group has their own, unique traditions.

Women

Womens-Ministry.jpg

There's a lot to be a part of if you're a woman looking for friends to share life with. Sometimes there's a book study, other times a sewing class; and our quarterly Sundays Women's Lunch. Here you will find women who desire to enjoy Christian fellowship; but more importantly, be a part of something eternally meaningful.

By serving God in their homes and even in simple, everyday interactions with strangers, their love for Christ shines. They serve at Pine Ridge in many areas. If you are a young woman or even just a new Christian, and would like to be mentored in the faith, here's your chance. Many of our women would love the opportunity to help you grow spiritually, standing alongside you in that journey. See you at lunch!

Men

We strive to serve the church family in a variety of ways-- caring for our little ones, taking charge at church work days, and caring for our widows. Pine Ridge is greatly served by the leadership of our men, young and old.

A little camping, a little grilling, and a lot of discipleship. Those who taste and contribute to this shared wealth of wisdom are more alive to follow Christ in word and deed.
