Welcome! I am glad you found Laguna Country United Methodist Church. We are all on a journey and wherever you find yourself on that journey you are welcome. Our mission statement, “Welcoming Everyone, Serving in God’s Love,” reflects this.
Though we live in planned communities and nice neighborhoods, we are often lonely and isolated. We believe that we have a responsibility to provide a community where people can grow in their faith, connect with others, and be in service to the world.
Our staff and church leaders are committed to building a community where everyone feels welcome and we can live out our mission to serve others. We believe community is built through worship, fellowship and small group opportunities, studies that help us grow in faith, or over a cup of coffee during fellowship time. We want to be here for you and share with you how God has touched our lives and can touch yours as well.
I hope that you take the risk and allow us to welcome you, wherever you are on your journey. If there is some way in which I or another member of our staff can be helpful, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
OCTOBER SERMON THEMES
October 1 Upside Down - Matthew 21:23-32
Jesus tells a parable of two sons and a vineyard, enraging his critics by asserting that tax collectors, prostitutes, and other outcasts welcomed John and thereby would receive greater welcome in the kingdom of heaven than they would.
October 8 Living in a Good Friday World
In the aftermath of the horrific violence during the Route 91Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, we struggle to come to terms with the anger, pain and grief in trying to make sense of a senseless act. Through it all, God's grace abounds and the power of the Holy Spirit rises up to help us transform from fearful followers to faith filled leaders.
October 15 Party Invitations - Matthew 22:1-14
Jesus tells a parable about a king who gives a great feast and invites his friends to join in the celebration. But those invited refuse to come, so the invitation is sent out again, this time to the “evil and good.”
October 22 Who’s Testing Whom - Matthew 22:15-22
Jesus has been under constant attack from his critics. They make one more attempt to entrap him by asking him a controversial question about whether or not they ought to pay taxes to Caesar. Jesus responds by reminding his critics of the demand to give all that we have and all that we are to God.
October 29 Great Commandments - Matthew 22:34-46
Jesus is asked, “Which law is the greatest?” In reply, Jesus quotes the wisdom of Israel.
