Welcome Worship Nurture Send Welcome to Hope Ridge United Methodist Church United in Christ, we GREET all people in fellowship, joy, and love, GUIDE people to new life in Christ, GROW to become mature disciples, and GO forth as servants to share Christ in our world. Hope Ridge was started in 1957 by Rev. Richard Bailey, and met at Melridge Elementary School. In 1959 that small congregation set out to build a United Evangelical Church on land at the intersection of Johnnycake Ridge and Button Road, our present location. In 1960, Rev. Bob Lautenschlager became the pastor, serving until 1981. During that time a new classroom addition and later, a fellowship hall and offices were added. In 1968 Hope Ridge became a United Methodist Congregation. Rev. Bobs vision for Hope Ridge was to serve the community by attracting members who shared his passion for caring for people in need. During that period members of Hope Ridge were instrumental in the establishment and support of many agencies and facilities throughout the county including the Hope Ridge Preschool, Hospice of the Western Reserve, Hope Chest, Project Hope for the Homeless, The Neighboring Project, Crossroads, and many others. In 2006, a new, modern Worship and Family Life Center was constructed to provide facilities for expanded programs for our congregation and the community, following the spirit of our half century heritage. You may contact us at 440-352-2141, or firstname.lastname@example.org At Worship I, Hope Ridge Church offers hymn singing, bible reading, sharing the good news, and prayer time. We meet Sunday mornings at 830 A.M. in the Chapel. At Worship II, Hope Ridge Church offers choir singing, hymn singing, bible reading, sharing the good news, and prayer time. We may include video, drama, or singing to support the message. We meet Sunday mornings at 1030 A.M. in the Worship and Family Life Center. Our nursery includes a pager system. A vibrating pager is given to a parent when they leave their child in the nursery. Our babysitters are able to quietly notify the parent that they need to return to the nursery. This system is great for both the parents and the babysitters.
