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.
NOVEMBER SERMON THEMES
November 2 - A Cloud of Witness
Revelation 7:9-17 This Sunday is All Saints Sunday, where we will remember those saints of the church who have joined the Cloud of Witness, this past year. In Revelation, John sees a vision. At the center of heaven stands the Lamb on the throne of God and all the saints and creatures sing praise to the Lamb who reigns. “I looked and I saw a great multitude,” John says, the saints before the throne of God.”
November 9 - Give To Live
Mark 12:41-44 At the temple Jesus watches people offering their gifts and notes a poor widow who gives all that she has to God. What will we give to God?
November 16 - Giving: An Act Of Faith
Deuteronomy 26:1-13, 2 Corinthians 9:1-9 In Deuteronomy, the Hebrew people are instructed by God to give a thanksgiving offering, an offering of the first fruits, when they come into the Promised Land. Paul reminds us in 2 Corinthians that God likes a cheerful giver.
November 23 - On Giving Thanks
Matthew 6:25-34 Jesus reminds those who are listening, that if God is able to provide for the birds of the air and the flowers in the fields, God will certainly provide for us.
November 30 - Get Ready 1st Sunday in Advent
Isaiah 64:1-9 The prophet Isaiah pleads with God to do something big, to tear open the heavens and come down. God and the people of Israel have become estranged and Isaiah is pleading for a reunion. Advent is a time where we are waiting and preparing for God to come down and redeem us.
