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.
SUMMER WORSHIP – ALL IN THE FAMILY
I have entitled this summer’s sermon series, All In The Family. Throughout July and August we will be looking at some of my favorite passages of scripture out of the Book of Genesis. We will be following the descendants of Abraham and Sarah as they live out and into God’s promise. God promises Abraham that he will have descendants as numerous as there are stars in the heavens. These characters will be the ones to carry on God’s promise.
August 3 The Prankster Gets Pranked Genesis 29:15-28 Jacob finds true love in the home of his Uncle Laban. Since he does not have the bride price, he agrees to serve Uncle Laban for seven years for Rachel’s hand in marriage. On the wedding night things aren’t what they seem.
August 10 Sneaking Out and Growing Up Genesis 32:22-31 With his brother in hot pursuit, Jacob sends his family across the Jabok River, to safety. He stays behind and has a sleepless night wrestling with a mysterious visitor. Jacob comes away from the encounter with a new limp and a new name.
August 17 Betrayed by Brothers Genesis 37:1-4, 12-28 This week’s Scripture begins the adventures of Joseph, Jacob’s favorite son, who is envied by his brothers, imprisoned in a pit, sold as a slave to a passing caravan of Ishmaelites.
August 24 The Big Reveal Genesis 45:1-15 Our sermon series All In The Family, comes to a close. After many twists and turns, the Joseph saga comes to an end. In the final, dramatic episode Joseph reveals himself to his astonished brothers.
