Lubbock places of worship offer a wide variety of choices, including a mosque and a synagogue. Baptist and Church of Christ congregations predominate, but many other denominational groups also have a significant presence, including regional offices.

Although Southwest Lubbock is the growing edge for churches as well as businesses, the historic downtown churches also thrive. St. Elizabeth's Catholic Church is now worshiping in its new sanctuary downtown.

If you do not find your church in the listings or if there is an error, please call us at 766-8724, e-mail the information to [email protected] or write the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, Attn: Beth Pratt, P.O. Box 491, Lubbock, Texas 79408.
