Grow Deeper

Studying the BibleAt Laguna Presbyterian Church, you’ll find people who are new to the Christian faith or the Presbyterian church, as well as life-long Presbyterians. We welcome you where you are in your journey and pray that you will find this community to be thoughtful and responsive as we discover together who God is, and as we explore ever more fully the depths of Christ’s love. You are welcome to join in!

Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. ~ Mark Twain

Bible Studies

Jerry teaching at Bible StudyDo you ever find it difficult to read the Bible? Understanding the Bible isn’t for the few, the gifted, the scholarly. The Bible is accessible. It’s meant to be read and understood by everyone, including you! Let us show you how to read it so it makes sense to you in your life. We offer a wide range of Bible study opportunities, with or without homework.

Spiritual Direction

Spiritual direction is an opportunity to discover what God’s will is now for your life, with the help of a trained companion. What is God doing in your life? Where is your life’s best purpose? Often questions such as “Why is this or that happening?” are brought into the journey as you explore together God’s particular leading.


Spiritual direction often helps you to find answers to questions such as:

• What are the signs of God’s direction for me this year, month, week?
• Why don’t I feel loved by God?
• If this is my one and only life, how can I know the will of God?

Usually meetings are once a month in a one-to-one relationship where you discern together the leading of God’s spirit in your life. Working with a helper enhances your awareness and experience of God’s presence in your life and helps you structure ways to deepen your spiritual maturity. For more information email Kathy Sizer.
