Worship Online, Sunday, January 17, 2021
Chancel Flowers are given in celebration of Michele Luna’s 80th birthday!
Today is the 2nd Sunday after Epiphany. This morning we continue with our series in the Gospel According to Mark: A New Beginning. Rev. Sweet’s message is entitled, A New Beginning into the Calling. Our Scripture is Mark 1:14-20, the beginning of Jesus’ mission and Jesus’ calling of the disciples. We are invited to listen for the voice of Jesus this morning. How is Jesus inviting you into new life, from entanglements to freedom, from stagnation to spiritual transformation, from wandering to partnering with God in the work of re-creation: bringing good news, hope, light, peace, justice and reconciliation in this world?
Will Willimon writes, “Jesus accomplishes his mission by calling ordinary folk to follow him, to participate in his revolution called the kingdom of God.” (Willimon’s Lectionary Sermon Resource: Year B Part 1 (p. 111). Abingdon Press. Kindle Ed)

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 1890’s through the 1970’s. Added to that collection are many contemporary photos taken over the years of the mission and ministries of Laguna Presbyterian Church, along with the addition of 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, and to Rick Lang and John Cullings, our photographers in by profession and in ministry. The music credits may be found at the end of the video. Enjoy!
Come, join us in worship on Sundays at 8:30am and 10:30am! We are located in the heart of downtown Laguna Beach and we seek to extend God’s welcome and hospitality to all!
