Laguna Presbyterian Church is located in the heart of downtown Laguna Beach at the corner of Forest Avenue and 2nd Street. Our address is 415 Forest Avenue, Laguna Beach. Click on the Campus Map (right) for more information on various room locations.
What will the worship service be like?
Real! In worship, our eyes are opened and we encounter Jesus Christ. We hear Christ speaking to us as we read the Scriptures, sing, pray, and receive the sacraments of communion and baptism. Both services follow the same order, with the same music and the same sermon. Services begin at 8:30AM and 10AM.
What will the music be like?
Joyful and reverent. Our musicians draw from the excellent music of every genre. On any given Sunday music may be led by pipe organ, piano, keyboard, guitars, flute, chancel and bell choirs, and praise team.
What should I wear?
Laguna Beach is known for being a “casual” beach town. We encourage you to “come as you are.”
Wear whatever makes you comfortable. You will see men in an occasional suit and tie, but mostly in slacks, jeans and even shorts in the summer months. You will see women in dresses, and even an occasional hat, as well as slacks. Laguna Presbyterian Church has a long history of encouraging folks to come to worship and then feel free to kick around on the beach afterwards.
How long are the services?
Both services run 60-70 minutes in length. Length will vary on those Sundays when we are celebrating baptisms or communion.
How will I know what to do in worship?
You will receive a worship bulletins from our Greeters when you arrive. Everything you need to participate in the worship service (words, music and cues to sit and stand) is printed in the worship bulletin. You are given the bulletin by our greeters as you enter the sanctuary.
Should I bring a Bible with me?
If you want to you may, but we have plenty of Bibles located in the pews. We use the New Revised Standard Version.
