What To Expect

We are excited that you are interested in visiting LakeRidge UMC. While we’re one of the largest churches in the region, you will feel right at home with our West Texas hospitality from the moment you enter the door.

LakeRidge UMC offers a place for ordinary people to become fully devoted followers of Jesus. Learn more about what we believe.

Worship Opportunities

Each Sunday morning, LakeRidge UMC offers three structured worship services to accommodate a variety of preferences and engage members of all ages. Each service is approximately one hour in length.

New Traditions

Sundays at 9:15 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.
Main Sanctuary – North End of Building

Join us for an eclectic mix of musical styles accompanied by our Sanctuary Choir, Orchestra, Instruments of Praise, Handbells and organ. This modern twist on classic worship includes traditional Methodist liturgy, monthly Children’s Corner and live messages.

LakeRidge Praise

Sundays at 10:30 a.m.
Activity Center – South End of Building

LakeRidge Praise takes place in the south end of the church in the Activity Center. Praise is a more casual service that focuses heavily on Worship through music. The band leads the congregation with a contemporary style each Sunday. You’ll also find that you can grab a complimentary coffee, tea, or juice and a snack to enjoy during the service. LakeRidge Praise is great for any age, especially kids who want to dance and wiggle as we spend an hour in prayer, praise, and scripture. The Pastor’s sermon comes via video each Sunday morning.

Worship for the Young and the Young at Heart

We are an intergenerational church, and encourage children of all ages to be an active part of our worship services – learning the value of worship and tradition firsthand from all generations.

There is a Parent’s Quiet Room located in the southwest corner of the sanctuary.

The LakeRidge Nursery is available during both 9:15 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. services for children 6-weeks to 2 years old.

Heading into worship service, our Ushers will provide you with an age-appropriate church bulletin and can assist with any special needs.
