Community

We believe God calls us to share the Gospel of Jesus, and that this mission field is as close as our own backyard. LakeRidge UMC strives to love others into the Kingdom through a number of local missions.

Change for Children

Is an initiative of our Break the Cycle of Poverty for Middle School Students. Currently we provide financial resources to all Middle Schools in the Lubbock area to ensure that no student goes hungry at lunch time. We also fill back packs for students in several of the schools to provide food for the weekend.

Food Vouchers

Each Wednesday morning food vouchers are made available for those in need at the LakeRidge UMC Student Ministry Center starting at 10:00 a.m. You must bring valid I.D. and recent document (such as a bill) with current address for the last 30 days.

Heart Pillows

Team Members sew heart-shaped pillows that are given to heart surgery patients in local hospitals. This group meets once a month to put together the pillows. No sewing skills necessary and all are welcome. Each month 40 pillows are taken to Heart Hospital and 80 to Covenant Hospitals. For more information about this ministry, or if you would like to join, please call the church office at (806) 794-4015.

Nursing Home Baking

Team members provide delicious baked/dessert items to share with Heartland House on a monthly basis.
