Membership is about more than attending church. Membership is an important covenant calling all members to love God and to love and serve others. By becoming a member, you commit to be part of a spiritual family that will provide support and encouragement in your walk with Christ. The United Methodist Church offers the opportunity to join the church, asking in return that you commit to it with your prayers, your presence, your gifts, your service, and your witness. Come to our Membership Class to find out more about the UMC, our beliefs, and how we at LakeRidge live out our beliefs as a community of believers.
Watch this video where members discuss their membership commitments and how those have blessed their lives.
But membership is just the beginning. Those who choose to join our church family are encouraged to take our Connections Class, a one hour class on all of the ways that members can connect through Sunday and Wednesday classes, volunteerism, spiritual growth, and outreach and missions programs. The Connections Class will help you launch your own personal journey as you join us in our church mission statement: Connecting generations with Jesus to impact our world.
