Outreach and Missions

guatemala1guatemala2MISSION COMMITTEE - Pine Ridge seeks to partner with the congregation as we follow Jesus' example of offering love, help, and hope to the poor, oppressed and needy. We are called to action to faithfully and prayerfully offer support to those with physical and spiritual needs through sharing of time, talents and money in support of local, national and global mission. Mission programs/projects include:

  • Hillcrest Ministries Housing of Platte County
  • Southern Platte Emergency Assistance Center food pantry
  • Synergy Services of Platte County - retired cell phone project
  • Living Waters of the World - clean water project in Olintepeque, Guatemala
  • Disaster Assistance and Relief Team (DART) -  Check out pictures from our 2014 DART Mission Trip to Joplin, Mo.
  • James Gang -a group of men and women committed to performing "works" for those in the church who need help on minor home repairs
  • Salvation Army Soup Kitchen.

There are numerous miscellaneous mission opportunities not mentioned here that are part of other committees/groups of our church (Heifer Project, One Great House of Sharing, Argentine Presbyterian Church Baby Closet, mission trips by our youth, etc.).

Check out pictures from our Living Waters of the World Guatemala trip.

WELCOME COMMITTEE - The Welcome Committee is responsible for maintaining the new Welcome Center, greeting and assisting new visitors in locating areas of interest. We provide first-time visitors with information to more fully understand all that Pine Ridge provides.

ATTRACTIONS COMMITTEE - The main focus of the Attraction Committee is to "attract" key audiences to Pine Ridge. The committee works with local media and press sources, as well as the Pine Ridge website. Our goal is to bring new visitors in that will hopefully feel comfortable and welcomed and will eventually make our church their own.

COFFEE MINISTRY COMMITTEE - The Holy Grounds Café opened in September 2007. At this time we provide, at no charge, free-trade coffee, hot tea and donuts. Lattes, cappuccinos, espressos (made with free-trade coffee) and fruit smoothies are available at a minimal cost. The café is open every Sunday 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Holy Grounds Café is staffed by volunteers and provides training on the simple operation of the equipment.

MUSIC EVENTS COMMITTEE - The Music Events Committee exists to reach out in friendship to the community and members of Pine Ridge. Our sanctuary has outstanding acoustics making it a superb auditorium for music and other events. It was also felt this was another way to invite others to enjoy the fellowship and mission of our church as well as to present outstanding musical events which would celebrate the good news of Jesus Christ to the public.
