About Ingleside

Founded in 1946, we're grateful to be an important part of the Capital Heights neighborhood. We desire to serve this community and demonstrate the goodness of Christ to our neighbors. While we have a rich history, we trust that God's work will continue in us to minister the Good News of Jesus.

Who we are... 

As a Christ-centered community, empowered by God, we seek to share the light of Christ by being a reconciling, serving, witnessing, and loving people of God. By studying God's Word and through worship, we seek to prayerfully discern and follow God's will for the people of God called Ingleside United Methodist Church.

A Message from the Pastor 

    I invite you to talk with me about the future of this church and how we can continue to engage with the community around us.  If you have an idea or just want to chat, send me an email or you can give me a call.  Let's work together to make our church one that continues to be active in its community.

Meet Our Staff!

He served as senior pastor at Crowley UMC before coming to Ingleside! We welcome Lewis and his wife Martha, and 2 stepchildren, Graham & Katie Waddill who all reside in Baton Rouge.
