Welcome! This is a place where stuff is worn out, thrown out, and burnt out; where hurts have a long history and hope may seem just beyond our reach. We know it all too well. But our story does not end here. Jesus said, "I am making all things new." It was a promise, and also an invitation.
Lake Ridge Community Church believes Jesus is making all things new here in Chestermere in and through us. We are discovering how to follow Jesus in Community, learning to trust God through Worship, experimenting with a new life of Generosity towards others, and allowing our own Stories to be shaped by the gracious, always renewing, love of Jesus.
Worship - Roots us and realigns us to God's work in our hearts. Each Sunday we gather as a community to worship God in song, reading the bible, the weekly message, and prayer.
Our service is around 60 minutes give or take a few. We start at 10:30 a.m. with music, prayer, scripture all thoughtfully planned by our worship team.
The best part of the morning is the fresh coffee and the quick break before listening to the message. We're a pretty causal bunch when it comes to clothes and the church.
We think of ourselves as an authentic group of messy Jesus followers and we'd love to have you join us!
Kids are central to the life of Lake Ridge Community Church. Each Sunday morning we create a special space for kids and youth to learn about Jesus and have fun with each other.
Community - We believe that following Jesus is best done together - it's why Jesus gathered people around him. Community is all about connecting, meeting new people and good friends.

We believe that our faith grows when we love God and our Neighbours. The two go hand in hand. Pastor Preston Pouteaux's new book explores what it means to step into our neighbourhoods to discover how God might be calling each of us to bring beauty, hope, and joy to the places we call 'home.' In many ways, this book is one creative look at the story of God unfolding at Lake Ridge and in our city of Chestermere.
Story is an important value to us. God's story unfolds in the Bible, and continues to unfold all around us. We also value your story; God is at work in you!
You can find some of our favorite stories, notes from sermons and travels from all sorts of authors on the blog.
These are opportunities to learn more about yourself, God and people in your community.
Generosity - is a value that shapes the way we live with what we have. Our generosity as God's people comes out of our experience that God is generous with us.
Mighty Neighbourly is a ministry of Lake Ridge Community Church created to welcome new people to Chestermere by connecting neighbours, newcomers, local businesses and charities.
