What can you expect when you visit our church?
Arrival: We are located in Westminster, CA and share a parking lot with the Korean Church of Orange County. Enter on Magnolia (just north of Hazard) and our parking attendant will show you the spots that have been reserved for LGC. Then our welcoming team will guide you to the sanctuary. If you are a new visitor, please let us know and receive the free gift pack that we have prepared for you!
Members: Our sanctuary seating capacity is 120 and we currently have one service with an average attendance of 70-90 people on Sundays. We are hoping to start an earlier 2nd service soon. On Friday nights, we have 20-30 members diligently coming out to study God's Word more in-depth together. Because we branched off of KCOC, the staff and a majority of the congregation members are Korean-Americans. But, over the years, more and more non-Koreans have become members and we hope that trend will continue.
Parents: There is a baby room inside of our sanctuary and our faithful volunteers will take care of your little ones during service. Kindergarten up to high school students meet in a separate building under the care of our education and children's pastors.
Worship Service: Come as you are! No fancy outfits necessary, no dress code needed. We have a live contemporary band and praise God with old and new songs from Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, Hillsong, United, Passion, Jesus Culture, IHOP, Elevation while also mixing in Delirious, Vineyard, Maranatha and, of course, good ol' fashioned hymns as well. You can sit or stand, clap or raise your hands, kneel or jump, shout or meditate, and freely express your worship unto God.
There is also a time of greeting where we go around and shake hands or hug and say hello to each other, especially if you are a new visitor. Some might feel awkward about this, but we feel that it's way worse to not acknowledge you! How can we NOT say hello to you when you chose to worship God with us from among so many churches out there. Don't worry. We promise to make it quick and painless. ;)
Sermons: Pastor Steve and other associate pastors will take a passage from the Bible and explain what's going on, what's REALLY going on, how it applies to our lives today, and, most importantly, how it brings glory to God! Sermons are easy to understand and practical in nature. Click HERE to check out some sermon videos.
God: Of course you can expect to meet God here! Without His presence, our whole purpose for gathering would be meaningless. Come worship and encounter God's glory, receive prayer from our members and be healed, be filled with the Holy Spirit and receive comfort and peace. Leave with a newfound joy and laughter in your heart, along with a full stomach!
Free Food! We believe in feeding our members spiritually AND physically. Immediately after each service (both Sundays and Friday nights), faithful groups take turns in blessing the entire church with a wonderful meal. Sometimes store bought, sometimes home-made, but always with love and hospitality. Visitors can go right to the front of the line and be served first. We have picnic tables outside under a tent where you can sit with the staff/members, ask questions, get to know us better and enjoy a great time of fellowship.
Now, enough reading about it. Come and see!
