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 2 The Finger Pointing Way - Exodus 20:1-4, 7-9, 12-20, God loves us so much that God does not leave us to our own devices. God gives us the gift of the law, points us to the way of life, and reveals the true way to us. The laws of God, the Commandments, are not restrictions upon our freedom, but rather true freedom, the means by which God shows us the way in an often-confusing world.
October 12 A Gift For All To Share - 50th Anniversary Celebration: - Bishop Carcaño preaching.
October 19 Who Is 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 26 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. Like any of God's good gifts, money may be abused by us, made an idol, given ultimate homage that ought only be given to God. God has given us money so that we might show praise through the generous offering of our gifts to do God's work in the world as a sign of God's in breaking kingdom among us.
