The Three Rivers Ringers concert at OPC has been cancelled - due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Three Rivers Ringers (TRR) is Pittsburgh’s premier community handbell ensemble. Founded in 2010, TRR has performed at the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) in 2012, for the American Guild of Organists’ regional convention in 2015, and has appeared in “Love the Coopers,” a motion picture released in November 2015. In 2016, TRR was honored to perform at the National Seminar for Handbell Musicians of America. Of special note, TRR has also performed with the world-renowned Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra at their Holiday Pops concerts in December 2015, 2016 and 2019 to great acclaim. OPC’s bell choir director, Bert Erickson, has rung with TRR occasionally over the years and is now a full-time member of the ensemble. She is excited that the TRR will be ringing at OPC this spring! The TRR relies exclusively on donations, so a free-will offering will be collected to support their growth and expand their educational programs.

FILM AND COMMUNITY
Movie theatres are modern day techno-pulpits; people flock to their local multiplex to let directors and screenwriters influence how they feel, think, and act. As image-bearers of God (the master storyteller, whose story spans all of creation) we in turn have a yearning to both create and be entertained by stories. This is evident even within scripture as Jesus teaches in parables. Holistic lessons are often learned more effectively through narrative than with bullet-point outlines and graphs.
Christians should enjoy and engage film not just as entertainment, but also to engage culture, and reflect on how it relates to the gospel. Everyone is invited to the OPC Film Discussion Series to view a variety of films, each in its entirety, on a big screen with great sound, followed by exposition and discussion of the film's cinematic and philosophical elements.
