We're glad you're here! We would love to meet you, and help you connect with the people of Lakewood Ranch Baptist Church. We are here to welcome you, wherever you find yourself on your spiritual journey. Here's a little info about our church, our ministries, and what you can expect when you join us on a Sunday morning.
Join us on Sunday mornings at 9:00 am or 10:45 am for our worship gatherings. Dress how you feel comfortable and you will fit in! Most people are pretty casual. Our music is contemporary, and we also sing hymns. Our messages aim to be relevant, Bible-based (expositional), and drenched with the message of salvation. We try to speak to both Christians and non-Christians every week. Click below to check out past sermon series.
Community groups are the backbone of our church. Most meet on Sunday morning during either 1st or 2nd service, but a few meet off campus at other times. When you come to a group you can expect Bible study, prayer, and regular social opportunities. Most of our groups follow the Explore the Bible curriculum, which overviews the entire Bible in seven years. Our groups are open to everyone--Christians and non-Christians.

We have classes for kids of all ages. Every Sunday all children (infants through 5th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where the Bible is taught in a creative way. Click below for more information on our Children's Ministry.
On Sunday Mornings, students meet at 9:00 am. They gather on the 3rd floor of our main church building, and their time features intentional relationship building, fun ice breakers, prayer time, and Bible study/discussion. On Wednesday Nights, they meet at 6:30 pm. Their time consists of student-led praise and worship, games, and teaching regularly led by our student pastor.
