Pleasant Ridge has many ministries in which we are involved. Here are just a few:
Helping in the Community
Christ's Haven - a children's home located in Keller, Texas. PR is given the opportunity to imitate Christ's love by gathering school supplies in the fall, planning and hosting a Christmas party with gifts for each child, and providing monthly financial support.
Friends Speak - a ministry outreach partnered with North Davis Church of Christ in which we practice English using God's word with International students in friendship relationships at NDCC, PRCC and UTA's Christian Campus Center (TriC).
Arlington Hearts & Hands - A nonprofit organization for food and clothing distribution housed in the North Davis Church of Christ property serving as a community outreach to those in need. A ten member Board of Directors from Arlington Churches of Christ oversees the work. PR gathers supplies through food drives and monetary contributions.
Sonshine Bible School - a preschool program for children eighteen months through pre-kindergarten. SBS allows each child many opportunities to socialize and gain spiritual as well as academic growth while under the supervision of caring teachers. The two- to three-day program is structured for different age levels with registration and tuition fees set accordingly.
Blood Drive - held in May and December. The May drive benefits PR members and their families who might have a need for blood. In December, the blood collected is given to our community.
