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.
