A Message from the Pastor

Dr. K. Nicholas Yoda

Welcome to the Pleasant Ridge Presbyterian Church and thank you for taking the time to visit our website. It has been said that the church website is fast becoming the new front door. So, as you walk through this "front door", it is our desire that you will not only find the information that you are seeking, but even more, you will discover the faithful, hopeful, joyful, and loving church that PRPC is attempting to be.

Our vision perhaps states it more clearly: "A joyful church, guided by God, loving our neighbors."

Thanks for visiting us and God's grace through Christ be with you always.

Solvitur ambulando—
Dr. K. Nicholas Yoda, Pastor & Head of Staff

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Where is the church located?

    The Pleasant Ridge Presbyterian Church is located at 5950 Montgomery Road, on the corner of Lester Road in Pleasant Ridge. The parking lot is off Lester Road. In addition, we are on bus route #4.

  • What if I have trouble walking?

    The church has handicapped access to the main floor and the basement. There are several handicapped access parking spots near the entrance. If the weather is not good, you may be dropped off by the covered doorway to make your way inside.

  • What time are the services?

    Sunday mornings at 8:30 am a service with communion is held in the chapel. The Scripture lesson and sermon parallel the later service, but there is no choir. At 10:30 am, worship is held in the sanctuary. This service includes a Children’s Sermon and special music, usually sung by the choir.

  • What do I wear?

    Most of our members prefer to wear somewhat dressy clothes but jeans and more casual clothes are worn by others. Jesus will love you whatever you wear and we will try to follow along!

  • Where do I park?

    The parking lot is off Lester Road, just around the corner from Montgomery Road. You may park anywhere in the lot or on the street.

  • Where do I enter the church?

    The entrance is off the parking lot at the back of the church under the smaller steeple.

  • Where do I go when I get inside?

    A greeter will assist you in finding the sanctuary where the service will be held.

  • Are children welcome in the service?

    YES! Children are welcome in the service. There are activity bags available for them at the back of the main sanctuary and there is also a part of the 10:15 service that is especially for them. If you are worried about your children making noise in the service please know that our pastors are also parents - they have been there! If your children are distracting you from worship, we provide babysitting for infants through kindergarten age. As a congregation we celebrate when babies cry and children make noise in church - it reminds us of the promise of the future church we have in these little ones. We bless them.

  • How do I know what to do in the service?

    You will receive a bulletin to help you participate in the service. Our worship leaders tell the congregation when to stand up and sit down and we are fairly informal. Hymnals and Bibles are located on the backs of the pews. Hearing assistance devices, large print bulletins and hymnals may be requested from an usher if needed. Wheelchair accessible pews are available on each side of the sanctuary.

  • What happens after the service?

    Almost everyone gathers in Heritage Hall for coffee, punch and donut holes! We love to socialize and hope that you will choose to stick around and meet us!

  • What if I want to talk to the pastor?

    Our pastor greets people at the back of the sanctuary after worship. This is the perfect time to meet the pastor.

  • Any other questions?

    Feel free to call the church from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on weekdays. The phone number is (513) 631-9707.
