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.

The mission of the United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

As United Methodists, we have an obligation to bear a faithful Christian witness to Jesus Christ, the living reality at the center of the Church’s life and witness. To fulfill this obligation, we reflect critically on our biblical and theological inheritance, striving to express faithfully the witness we make in our own time.

LCUMC Mission Statement


Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday.  Lent comes from the Anglo Saxon word lencten, which means "spring."  The forty days represents the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, enduring the temptation of Satan.

Lent is a time of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter. It is a time of self-examination and reflection.  In the early church, Lent was a time to prepare new converts for baptism.  Today, Christians focus on their relationship with God, often choosing to give up something or to volunteer and give of themselves for others.  Sundays in Lent are not counted in the forty days because each Sunday represents a "mini-Easter" and the reverent spirit of Lent is tempered with joyful anticipation of the Resurrection.
