Adult Ministries

Lake Ridge offers many opportunities for Bible study and fellowship for adults of all ages.


Adult Sunday School

Unless otherwise noted, our Sunday School classes are not age-specific but cover a wide range. Some classes offer a virtual option. Please reach out to the class contact for more information.

Young Adults

The Young Adult Ministry (YAM Fam) exists to get you through your college years and early 20's. This can be the hardest time of life, but it can also be the most rewarding and life-changing. We're a vibrant community that takes seriously the call of Christ on our life to be transformed by the Spirit, serve the church, and reach out to those who don't know Jesus.

Want to get connected with our YAM Fam? Complete and submit this form, and we'll get in touch with you. We can't wait to get to know you and hear your story!

Women's Ministry

The Lake Ridge Women's Ministry understands the unique design, gifting, and needs of women, and we desire to be a resource as they grow in their faith and serve in their families. We seek to provide every woman in the body with the opportunity to connect with other women, grow spiritually, and have opportunities to serve - all for the glory of God. 

Our special events offer the opportunity to connect in both fun and meaningful ways throughout the year. These events are designed to offer fellowship and encouragement as we seek to balance all of the elements of our busy lives. 

Women's Bible Studies

Our goal is to help women grow spiritually and build deep and lasting relationships. Bible studies are selected so that there is a variety in the type and intensity of study, and different days and times  -- during both spring and fall semesters -- are made available so that at least one of them might be worked into each individual’s schedule. We pray that one of these studies will tug at your heart and add great joy to your life!

This fall, the Women's Wednesday Night Bible Study will be Elijah by Priscilla Shirer, from September 1-October 27, 7:00-8:30 p.m. in the Family Room. Cost: $17 (pay online or in person). Contact: Kristin Wilkerson

Our Connections group meets on Wednesday mornings from 9:30-11:30 a.m. in the Family Room during the spring and fall semesters. During "off" times, they meet for Lunch Bunch. The fall study will be God of Deliverance by Jen Wilkins, September 8-November 17. Cost: $20 (pay online or in person). Contact: Ann Baughman

Our Precepts group meets on Thursday mornings from 9:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m. in B111. The 2-semester study of Genesis begins September 2; cost: $30 (pay online or in person). Contact: Becca Lowery


Rooted (based on Ephesians 3:16-17) is our NEW Women's Ministry fellowship. Check our calendar and our Online Signups page for details about upcoming events.

Men's Ministry

The Men's Ministry at Lake Ridge is geared toward the instruction we find in Titus 2:1-2, 6-8. Our younger and older men meet together to learn, encourage, and benefit from each other's walk with Christ. 

Men's Bible Studies

During the spring and fall semesters, our men gather on Wednesday nights from 7:00-8:30 p.m. for Bible studies. 

This fall we will continue our 2-part series on The Delight of Discipleship, led by Henry Rogers. Signups will begin in August. Contact: Henry Rogers

3 Strands Fellowship

Our men's group, 3 Strands Fellowship, was formed to help our men -- from young adults to senior adults -- focus on sharpening their relationships with one another to become stronger husbands, fathers, and leaders, both in the home and at church.

The men currently meet one Saturday a month for breakfast, fellowship, and continued discussion about genuine faith using the devotional booklet Is It Real? 

Check our calendar to see when the next meeting is. Signups are available on our Online Signups page.
