If it seems like there are a plethora of churches and synagogues in and around Lexington, there are. In fact, a 2001 community report by New Century Lexington, as well as a poll of residents, cited the area’s numerous religious opportunities as one of its strengths. With over 250 churches serving nearly 38 different denominations in the area, newcomers to the area will have no trouble finding religious opportunities of a particular type and/or size that suits their needs. From large congregations into the
thousands to smaller churches serving less than 100 people, the choices are numerous.
Area churches offer everything from community support activities, church planting, childcare services, and missionary experiences. When deciding on which church to attend, ask friends, family members, or people within the community where they worship and why. Don’t hesitate to visit several to determine the right fit for you. Many area churches have web sites that contain their doctrinal statements and beliefs, and some even provide their sermons on-line or broadcast worship services on local television.
