Sunday, April 11, 2021 – The Great Fifty Days
We are so glad you are joining us in worship! Today’s message is the first in our series between now and Pentecost, Jesus’ statements, “I Am” in John’s Gospel. Rev. Dr. Kathy Sizer’s message today is from John 11, Jesus’ statement: “I Am the Resurrection and the Life.”
The story happens in the village of Bethany––home of some of Jesus’ best friends––a family of single adults, sisters, Mary, Martha, and their brother Lazarus. They have just sent a message to Jesus, who was several days travel away, that Lazarus was critically ill. When Jesus arrives, he finds that Lazarus had already been in the tomb for four days. Amid grief and sorrow, Jesus speaks words of hope, ‘I am the resurrection and the life.” Jesus brings new life out of death and hope from despair.
Chancel flowers are given by Dee Dee Blair, “So blessed to have Steve as our new pastor.”
Music of the morning is lead by Chancel Choir and Praise Team. Our prelude, “Hail the Day that Sees Him Rise” features Sookyung Bang (Organ) and Micheal Haney (Trumpet). The postlude, “Who Rolled the Stone Away,” features Gabriel Rudner (Piano), Jesse Hughes (Bass), and Thor Fay (Drums) in an arrangement of this song by Gabriel Rudner that was inspired by Sister Rosetta Tharpe’s recording in 1955.
May the Lord bless you as you join in worship.

Mindfulness Spirituality Series
Video Posting welcomes all to join in the Adult Education, mindfulness series, and other activities during this time of CoVid-19. Our mission and ministries continue even though we can not physically gather.
This video tells a visual history of the men and women who laid the foundation for Laguna Presbyterian Church. The story is told through the use of historic photos gathered from the 1890s through the 1970s. Added to that collection are many contemporary photos taken over the years of the mission and ministries of Laguna Presbyterian Church and photos from this year, 2017, as we celebrated the 100th anniversary of LPC at various gatherings and through various outreach ministries. We are indebted to Jim Hind, our LPC Historian, Rick Lang, and John Cullings, our photographers by profession and ministry (music credits at the end of the video). Enjoy!
