Music Ministries

Our Music Ministry is designed to give everyone an opportunity to participate, by means of music, in God’s work through our church. Organized musical groups exist for ages 3 through Sr. Adult including choral, instrumental, solo, drama, ensemble, and handbell ministries. We take seriously the pursuit of excellent music for our perfect Lord.

Music at Riverland Hills Baptist Church stirs our hearts, stimulates our minds, and motivates our feet for Christian living. If you live in the greater Columbia area and are looking to add an exciting dimension to your spiritual life, then we invite you to join us in our mission to lift high the name of Jesus through music! Just call the Music Office at 772-3227 and talk with us; you'll find it a very easy process to become a part of our ministry.

If you would like to be contacted about upcoming musical events at Riverland Hills, send your email and/or mailing address to donna@riverlandhills.org or 201 Lake Murray Blvd, Irmo, 29063.

You are Invited to Choir!
We invite you to visit our next choir rehearsal – Wednesdays at 6:45pm. Try us out—we know you’ll be blessed and have a great experience. Maybe God is leading you to join us in ministry.The choir is a family. We love to laugh, sing, and fellowship together. It is an exciting ministry to be a part of because the Lord continually blesses us and uses us to accomplish incredible things. Most of all, it is a calling; a delightful calling and sense of purpose for our lives as believers in Christ.If I can help you feel more comfortable about choir, answer any questions, or help you in any way, please contact us.


We are always looking for talented players to join our ministry (even if they haven't played in a few years). We rehearse every other week and play each Sunday in Worship West, as well as for special programs. For more information, contact the Music Office at 772.3227.
