Weddings are a celebration of love and commitment to each other and to God. LakeRidge UMC wants to minister to you and your guests through your wedding service. This sacred ceremony creates a foundation for your marriage as you enter into a covenant with God and one another.

This special day will be most meaningful and less stressful with careful planning. LakeRidge offers two venues: the Main Sanctuary which is our largest area and the Wesley Chapel which is ideal for a smaller, more intimate setting.

For more information, please refer to the Lakeridge UMC Wedding Manual.

Baptisms & Confirmations

LakeRidge requires that an individual attend baptism class before being baptized. This is also the requirement for parents of infants who have never attended the class.  Please schedule your attendance at the class by calling 794-4015.
