This Ministry is comprised of all music components and liturgical dance ensembles. The musical components of our ministry are The Praise Team, The Sanctuary Choir, The Millennials for Christ Chorale, and The "Son" Shine Band. On 4th Sundays, our Youth are charged with the awesome task of providing all musical aspects for worship.
The Music Worship & Arts Ministry also provides an outlet for young musicians who are in the early stages of their musical crafts by providing a Youth Worship Orchestra which ministers on the 4th Sunday. Our Praise Dancers minister through liturgical dance on various Sundays throughout the year, as well as holidays, special church occasions, and celebrations.
Our Praise Team is charged with the responsibility of ushering in the Spirit of Christ each week at the beginning of Sunday Worship Service. Our Sanctuary Choir, which is comprised of mixed voices for adults ages 21 and up, ministers on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Sundays during morning worship service. On 5th Sunday worship we are blessed with musical treats from The “Son-shine” Band which is reserved for children ages 5-11 as well as our “Kids for the Kingdom” ensemble which currently serves our nursery music ministry for children ages 1-5.
The PGC music ministry seeks to provide a repertoire of musical selections to edify the body of Christ and minister to lost and down trodden. Our choirs are trained to sing standard hymns, traditional and contemporary gospel music, worship music, and anthems.
Hi and welcome to the Music Worship and Arts page for Pleasant Grove Church of Cary!
The great classical music composer Johann Sebastian Bach once said, "The aim and ﬁnal reason of all music is none else but to give glory to God and the refreshment of the spirit."

We minister music from all genres of Gospel Music including hymns, anthems, traditional, contemporary, and New Age.
