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 a free gift pack that we have prepared for you!
Members: Our sanctuary has 120 chairs and we have two Sunday services. (By the way, we are one of the few churches that offer Friday night Bible studies as well.) Because we branched out 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 blossom into a multi-ethnic community. You're not Korean? Excellent! You are more welcome!
Parents: There is a baby room inside of our sanctuary and our volunteers will take care of your little ones during service. Kindergarten up to high school students meet in a close-by building under the care of our education and children's pastors.
Worship Service: Come as you are! No fancy outfits necessary, no dress code or judgments here. 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, just to name a few. You can sit or stand, clap or raise your hands, kneel or jump, shout or meditate, and freely express your worship unto God.
Sermons: Pastor Steve and other associate pastors usually take a Bible passage 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. The 20-30 minute sermons are easy to understand and practical in nature. Click HERE to check out some sermon videos and be blessed! After each sermon, there is usually a time of prayer ministry for those that want to come forward and receive prayer from our pastors and leaders.
God: You can expect to meet God here, because why else would a church exist? Without the presence of God, our whole purpose for gathering would be meaningless. Come and worship Him, hear His voice, receive prayer from our members and be filled with the Holy Spirit and receive healing, comfort and peace. Leave with a newfound joy and laughter in your heart, along with a full stomach!
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 church with wonderful snacks, sometimes bought, sometimes home-made, but always provided with love and hospitality. We have picnic tables outside under a tent where you can sit with the pastors and members, ask questions, get to know us better and enjoy a great time of fellowship.
But enough reading about it. Come and experience it for yourself!
